St. Louis (Mo.) Ritter defensive back Antonio Gully made an official visit to Illinois over the weekend and had a chance to see his top two teams in person as Illinois played Wisconsin.
The visit with the Illini could not have gone much better.
"It was excellent," Gully said. "It was great."
When asked what he liked, Gully said, "What's not to like? It's a very nice place. I liked everything."
While the Illini lost to the Badgers, Gully still feels good things are ahead for Illinois.
"They have a sound football program," Gully said. "They are down now, but they're on the rise. They have a great coach and great facilities."
But Gully is not ready to commit to the Fighting Illini, at least not yet.
"My next visit right now is Wisconsin Dec. 9," he said. "I'm going to wait and visit Wisconsin before I decide. Those are my top two.
"There's a few more in the running like Indiana, Missouri, Ohio University, and Western Michigan. But Illinois and Wisconsin are my top two.
"I don't have a favorite, just a top two."
The 6-foot-0 and 175-pound Gully said all the schools he mentioned have offered a scholarship. He is the No. 14 prospect in the state of Missouri in the Rivals.com player rankings.
