West Virginia Top Commit Rodney Gallagher Announces Exact Time He Will Sign



West Virginia fans were offered a sense of relief when top commit Rodney Gallagher reiterated his intentions to be a Mountaineer recently. Gallagher has now pinpointed an exact time that he will make it official.

The four-star product, who will be joining WVU as a receiver after also spending time at quarterback in high school, tweeted that he will sign his national letter of intent at 1 pm on Wednesday in the Laurel Highlands High School auditorium.

After much speculation in recent weeks about if Gallagher would stay true to the Mountaineers and remain committed, he finally made his intentions clear when he by tweeted that he will officially sign with WVU on Early Signing Day on Dec. 21. Gallagher confirmed to WVSN that he was waiting to see if West Virginia brought back head coach Neal Brown, a decision that was made and then followed by the hiring of new athletic director Wren Baker.

“I appreciate you guys coming through for my bday. I’m staying a Mountaineer and locked in with the program. Will be signing on December 21st,” Gallagher said in a tweet while referring to the love he received from Mountaineer Nation on his birthday.

Gallagher did visit Penn State recently, triggering most to believe PSU would be his choice if he did pull his commitment from WVU. But at the end of the day, Gallagher, who has the distinction as the sixth highest ranked recruit in the history of West Virginia football and the best prospect of the Neal Brown era, will now arrive on campus during a pivotal season and with pressure to help get the program back headed in the right direction.

This news also comes just days after Gallagher announced an NIL agreement with The Pavement Group, making him the first-ever high school athlete in Pennsylvania to receive money while maintaining an amateur status.

Gallagher will next be competing in the Under Armour All-American Bowl in January. He closed out his tenure at Laurel Highlands by compiling 2,039 total yards of offense and 28 touchdowns while switching between quarterback and wide receiver during his senior season.
