Detroit (Mich.) King three-star athlete Jalen Embry has accumulated close to a dozen scholarship offers, but just two schools have dominated his thoughts recently.
"Really, it is Iowa and Wisconsin," Embry said. "If I was to get any other big offers, then those other schools would come into the picture. But right now it is just narrowed down to those two.

"I am going to take my time with it. I've got a big season ahead and I'm not really focused on colleges and making that decision."
Embry, however, went on to say his decision could come as soon as next month, and he is starting to look at possible official visit dates for Iowa and Wisconsin.
"I plan on setting two officials to Wisconsin and Iowa," he said. "I just started getting back in contact with the Iowa coaches and the Wisconsin coaches. They kept asking me if I was going to come up there, and I told them yeah, I plan on taking my officials to their schools."
Embry must first register with the NCAA Clearinghouse before he can take his official visits, but he expects to have that done soon. Both schools have already hosted him for unofficial visits.
"When I first thought of Iowa I thought it was a lot of cornfields, but it is downtown Iowa City and it is beautiful," Embry said. "[Former Detroiter] Desmond King goes there and he texts me and calls me, giving me updates about the school and how everything is. He makes it sound like the place to be."
Wisconsin was a recent visit for King. He visited Madison in July and was offered a scholarship by the Badgers soon after.
"When I went up there for a visit, I just loved the feel," Embry said. "I can see myself playing in that stadium atmosphere."
While most schools have recruited the 5-foot-11, 176-pound Embry as a cornerback, Wisconsin sees him at either wide receiver or defensive back.
"The receivers coach (Chris Beatty) asked me what I would prefer, and I told him whatever Coach (Gary) Andersen has planned for me," Embry said. "That's when they offered me to play receiver, so I guess that is where they want me at. It doesn't matter to me as long as I am playing and getting my education."
