The Nebraska football program picked up another recruit from the state of Ohio, getting a verbal from Akron, Firestone H.S., wide receiver Kevin Gladney. He spent the weekend in Lincoln with head coach Bo Pelini, defensive coordinator John Papuchis and wide receivers coach Rich Fisher.
The 6’1, 182 pound Gladney had narrowed his choice down to Nebraska and Iowa. Gladney told Sean Callahan of HuskerOnline.com, “After visiting Nebraska and Iowa I just sat down and did the pros and the cons and everything and I broke it down and said ‘me coming to Nebraska just felt right.'”
