Webster Grove, Mo., defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn has been receiving attention from schools all spring, and the member of the newly released Rivals100 has scholarship offers from schools across the country.
"Right now, I would say Illinois and Nebraska are probably a little ahead of the others," the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Clayborn said. "Those two along with Iowa, Kansas State and Missouri are kind of my top five schools as this stuff all moves along."
Clayborn likes the coaches at each of the schools.

"I think the new staffs at Nebraska and Illinois are going to get things going in the right direction. Illinois has a good program and Coach (Ron) Zook has a history of being with very good programs. Nebraska and Coach (Bill) Callahan has been associated with good teams through his career and he has Nebraska turned back around."
Clayborn is not trying to rush into a decision.
"I am going to take some unofficial visits this summer," he said. "That will let me see the schools and talk to the coaches when I have time. I don't have a schedule set for the summer. I am going to Iowa's camp this month and I will try and get to Illinois for sure for an unofficial visit."
