Running back Toneo Gulley started his prep career at Garfield High School in Akron, Ohio, but moved to Kenosha, Wisc., a year ago to attend Kemper High. The 5-8, 185-pound Gulley put up outstanding numbers in his first season at Kemper, and added his first offer on the last day of 2010 from Bowling Green.
"On Facebook I received a message from the recruiting coach and he gave me his number," Gulley said. "The email said they wanted to offer me, so I called and talked to the head coach. It was great to ring in the New Year knowing I can go to college."
Gulley has not yet added his second offer, but several schools could potentially join Bowling Green on his offer list shortly.
"I've talked to Ball State, Western Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Minnesota," Gulley said. "They just came to the school to meet me and exchange numbers. They told me when their junior days are and I am just now deciding where I will be attending."
Gulley is currently in the process of sitting down with his father and making decisions about which junior days to attend. In the meantime he is researching each school and keeping an open mind to the process.
"I am still going to do my homework on each college, seeing what majors they have and what they have to offer," Gulley said. "I am considering Bowling Green because they do have my major and a couple other schools do too. I'm going to take my time and see what is the best fit for me."
Gulley carries a 3.7 GPA in the classroom and would like to major in Biomedical Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering or Physical Therapy.
Gulley also has impressive numbers on the football field. As a junior he rushed for 1,659 yards and 27 touchdowns and also threw for two touchdowns and notched two receiving scores.
Akron boasts a strong collection of talent in the 2012 class and Gulley knows several of the city's top prospects, including Hoban High defensive end Greg McMullen, from his days in Akron.
"Greg McMullen, that is my cousin," Gulley said. "We actually played peewee's together with LaTroy [Lewis]. I've played with them since we were kids."
