Kenosha (Wisc.) Tremper running back Toneo Gulley holds offers from eight Mid-American Conference schools, and is receiving attention from a host of others. It has been a busy spring with coaches from colleges around the Midwest stopping by his high school.
"Things have been going really well," Gulley reported. "A lot of colleges have been stopping in, like Iowa, Ball State, Northern Illinois, Harvard, Penn, Minnesota, Kent State and Bowling Green."
The eight schools that have offered are Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Kent State, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan. He took a weekend visit to one of those schools last month.
"I have visited NIU for their spring game, saw the campus and talked with the coaches and some of the players," Gulley said. "That was pretty exciting. Me and my family went down there and we had a good time."
All of Gulley's offers are from the MAC and he said he is very satisfied with his list as it stands right now. Outside of those teams that have offered, though, he feels Minnesota has shown the most interest.
"I've talked to the recruiting coach a few times and they just want to get me at camp and see how I do there," Gulley said.
Gulley will attend Minnesota's camp on June 19 and he also plans to attend Northwestern's camp on the June 23, which will be followed by a trip back to his native state of Ohio and several more campus visits.
"I will hopefully be going back home to Akron, Ohio and I was going to visit all my other options in Ohio - Ohio University, Akron, Kent State, Toledo and Bowling Green," Gulley said. "Sometime I will probably be going to Ball State too."
This off-season, Gulley has been working with a strength and conditioning coach to improve his speed, but he also added ten pounds to his frame and now measures in at 5-8 and 195 pounds.
