Trips Starting To Take Shape For Gully

When it comes to players like Antonio Gully, it's not necessarily about size or weight, but rather the package you get all together. Much like Nebraska's Brandon Rigoni, looks can be rather deceiving but once you get smacked in the mouth on a kickoff return, you know what you're dealing with. Gully spoke with us about some important factors for his eventual college, his top five schools and one official already lined up.

Cardinal Ritter College Prep's Antonio Gully is quiet and may seem a bit shy, but when it comes to playing on the football field, opposing quarterbacks know it's just not a good idea to try his demeanor. "Nobody's really giving me a chance to do anything. They're not running to my side and they're not throwing to my side. I feel I've performed well when they do, though," he said. Gully's team sits at 2-2 on the year and the cornerback/wide receiver prospect out of St. Louis is reporting a few new offers from Ohio, Central Michigan and Western Michigan.

That may be too little too late for Gully who has named a current top five of Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan State, Nebraska and Indiana. Antonio actually took a trip up to see the Hoosiers recently. "It was nice time overall. They played Kentucky and it was a good game," he said. Gully has one official lined up with Illinois on October 22nd when they face Joe Paterno's Penn State Nittany Lions.

As Antonio looks through his 13 total offers, he feels that any one of them could be a good choice in the long haul, but there are a few factors he's looking for in a school, he admits. In talking to Nebraska Defensive Coordinator Kevin Cosgrove, the topic can quickly turn into what Antonio wants for the next several years. "We talk about things like School, football, family, that sort of thing," he said. Antonio stresses the family aspect stating that it is a very large factor in his decision. While he's away from home, he feels he needs a close-knit second family and Nebraska's Cornhuskers might be the next bunch he calls "brothers".
