Akron Firestone wide receiver Kevin Gladney was among the many prospects to attend the
Buckeyes’ junior day on Sunday. Gladney came away impressed with Ohio
State as well as the city of Columbus.

“We
did a tour of the campus,” Gladney said. “It’s a nice campus. I liked
how everything is together – Ohio State and Columbus. Columbus is Ohio
State. I liked how Columbus is a football city.”

Gladney was also impressed with the Ohio State football tradition.

“We checked out the stadium,” Gladney said. “We heard about the history. They have a lot of history and tradition.”

Gladney met Urban Meyer for the first time over the weekend.

“I shook hands with a lot of the coaches,” Gladney said. “But Urban Meyer and Zach Smith were the main two.”

The 6-foot-2 and 175-pound Gladney had a very good junior season. He caught 48 passes for 768 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Gladney said the Buckeyes have not talked about a scholarship offer yet, but others have.

“Michigan State, Nebraska and Michigan offered,” Gladney said. “I
was going to go to Michigan State Feb. 25, but I can’t make it now.
I’ll go some other time.”

Gladney is not close to picking a college and wants to visit as many schools as he can.

“I like Ohio State since I’m from Akron,” Gladney said. “I’m an
Ohio State fan. But I want to check out a lot of schools so I don’t have
a favorite.”

Gladney is a 3-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings and the No. 20 prospect in the state of Ohio.

Kurelic’s Comment: Gladney is a good prospect and I expect the Buckeyes to stay in contact. But I don’t see them extending an offer anytime soon.
