Gulley explains decision

Earlier this week Tyson Gulley ended the recruiting process by making a verbal commitment to Notre Dame.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound all-purpose back from Akron (Ohio) Garfield has run the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and he had a big senior year this fall. Gulley had 167 carries for 932 yards and 17 touchdowns on offense for Garfield, while recording 51 tackles and four interceptions on defense.

He spoke with Rivals.com about how everything went down this past week.

"I had taken an official visit to Syracuse like two weeks ago when they played Rutgers," Gulley explained. "I enjoyed myself a lot up there.

Gulley said he committed to the Orange on Wednesday.

In addition to Syracuse, he held offers from Kansas and a handful of schools in the MAC.
