Akron (Ohio) Firestone wide receiver Kevin Gladney lists ten scholarship offers and is starting to see some separation among the schools pursuing him. Two schools have emerged as top contenders, though the three-star receiver is still considering all schools.
"It's just real tough. Every coach is super respectful and shows you how much they want you," Gladney said. "The ones that are pushing to the top are Nebraska and Iowa. I am going to try to see the other schools to compare, but those are the two schools that are up there right now."
Gladney took a visit to Iowa City to see the Hawkeye's program last month. He plans to travel to Nebraska with his parents and a cousin on June 11 to see the Cornhuskers.

"They were telling me how the atmosphere is," Gladney said. "In Nebraska, football is all they've got. They guarantee I am going to like it, so June 11 I am going to see."
Gladney will consider paring his list or even making a decision following his visit to Nebraska, but nothing is certain at this point. He has seen a number of coaches this spring through the school and could be on the verge of more offers.
"Kentucky was the only one who said they were going to offer me soon," Gladney said. "He couldn't talk to me, but was talking through my coach."
Other coaches through Firestone this spring were from Penn State, West Virginia, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Indiana, Minnesota and Illinois.
"Basically they want me to come to their camps and do what I have to do there to get offered," Gladney said. "To this point, I have no camps in mind. I am probably going to skip the camp scene, or I might go to one. It depends on how open I am because of summer school."
