Neal Brown and his staff hosted a handful of recruits from Western Pennsylvania on Tuesday night, that included two elite prospects.
On what is described to WVSN as a priority visit, the West Virginia football program hosted 2023 4-star wide receiver Rodney Gallagher from Laurel Highlands, and 2023 4-star linebacker Ta’Mere Robinson 2023 3-star defensive end Kameron Cheatom and 2023 running back/linebacker Shawn Solomon Jr., all from Brashear High School.

“The visit was great,” Gallagher told West Virginia Sports Now. “They show a lot of love to me down there and want to build a great relationship with me. The coaching staff is great and the facilities are nice all around.”
Gallagher is rated as a Top 100 junior in the country by both 247 Sports and Rivals.
