Kenosha (Wisc.) Tremper running back Toneo Gulley has made the most of his time off from school this summer. The 5-8, 185-pound back attended two Big Ten camps and also made unofficial visits to two of the schools that have offered him a scholarship.
The first camp Gulley attended was at Minnesota in mid-June. He received positive feedback from head coach Jerry Kill and his staff, but has not followed up with the Gopher's coaching staff since.
"I went to Minnesota and I went to Northwestern. Those are the only two camps that I have been to.
"We usually contact through either email or I call them, but I haven't called them in awhile and they haven't contacted my via email in awhile, so I don't know what's going on there," Gulley said. "I will probably shoot them an email in the next couple days."
Following his appearance at Minnesota, Gulley traveled to Big Ten rival Northwestern to participate in the Wildcat's summer camp.
"That went well and I was happy with my performance," Gulley said. "There were a lot of coaches from different schools at the Northwestern camp, and I got a lot of feedback from the schools that had offered me in the MAC and feedback from Northwestern. The MAC coaches said I did really well and Northwestern said the same thing and was talking about an offer. They said they were going to check out what the deal was with their other recruits, and I will be in the mix for an offer."
Gulley holds eight offers from MAC schools - Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Kent State, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan. He stopped by two of those campuses while visiting friends and family in his old hometown of Akron recently.
"The first time I went back I checked out Akron U. and Kent State," Gulley said. "That was the only two schools that I visited. I tried to get out to the other schools, but I didn't get a chance to."
Gulley also spent some time in Syracuse visiting his brother this summer. The Wisconsin back is hearing from the Orange, but did not stop by their campus while in the area.
Gulley is entering his second season with Tremper High. Last year he rushed for 1,659 yards and accounted for 31 touchdowns. He plans to juggle both recruiting and football responsibilities this fall, and expects a decision to come after his senior season.
"I'm just trying to keep it level right now and look at all the options," Gulley said. "I'm still doing my research and talking to the coaches. I will take official visits, I just don't know where yet."
