At the start of last week, Rodney Gallagher was looked at by most as a star freshman for the Laurel Highlands (PA) and as a future D-I basketball player.
The talented point guard already holds basketball offers from Pitt, Illinois and Rhode Island.
That outlook has changed a lot after Gallagher received football offers this week from Pitt, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Michigan and today from Neal Brown and West Virginia.
West Virginia Sports Now caught up with Gallagher after he received the news to get his thoughts on his latest Power 5 offer.
”They actually called my dad and extended the offer to him,” said Gallagher. “I will get a chance to talk to them soon but I was very happy when I got it. West Virginia is a great school in all athletics. They have been good the last couple years and the environment is great there.”
Getting recruited and receiving offers for major college football and basketball as a freshman is very rare but Gallagher is a very mature young man that’s keeping things in perspective.
“I don’t get caught up in all this,”’said Gallagher. “I’m just going to keep workin and keep my grades and head straight.”
In case you’re wondering, Gallagher tells us that he’s heard from the West Virginia basketball program as they came to a practice and game this season. Gallagher’s intentions right now are to play both sports in college.
