It has been a very busy weekend for one of the nation's top running back's in Nebraska's Brandon Gunn. One visit is now in the books for for this highly sought Blue Chip Running Back.

The Nebraska native visited Kansas State over the weekend and named his top five schools of interest Monday. In addition to the Wildcats, Gunn lists Nebraska, UCLA, Iowa, and Iowa State as his favorites.

Gunn hasn't scheduled any other visits thus far and doesn't plan to until later in the season or after his high school season. "I was real anxious to get to Manhattan to see K-State," Gunn said. "The trip went better than I thought it would. It was just good to get there and meet everyone and see everything. It was a lot of fun."

K-State running back Darren Sproles was Gunn's player host on the visit. "He was great," he said. "I didn't realize I'd be paired up with him. He's an amazing back. He'd be a good one to learn from."

But one aspect Gunn appreciated about the visit was that Sproles was honest with him and didn't try to push him into choosing K-State.

"He was real honest with me and straight about everything," Gunn said. "He told me to visit all my schools and go where I feel most comfortable. I'm just glad he was clear with me and didn't push me either way. He's a good guy and I respect him for that."

Stay tuned…….Brandon is highly ranked on the Wildcat recruiting board and the battle for his signature will be heated.
