Rodney Gallagher has been the target of major college programs across the country since entering the 9th grade at Laurel Highlands High School.
At one point, Gallagher had intentions of trying to play both football and basketball in college but later decided to devote all of his efforts on competing on the football field.
At the completion of his junior season in which he passed for 1,365 yards, rushed for 1,130 yards and scored 33 touchdowns; Gallagher is not only one of the top recruits in Pennsylvania but is recognized by all national recruiting services as a Top 100 junior in the nation. 247Sports currently ranks Gallagher as the No. 97 junior in the nation, while Rivals has Gallagher at No. 106.
Gallagher has his choice of which college he can attend and made news this weekend by announcing that he’ll announce his college decision on July 4.
The 6-foot, 170-pound star could wait until his senior season and possibly earn more offers, but he tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he’s ready to end the recruiting process and get to work.
“I’m just ready to end my recruiting and focus completely on my senior year,” said Gallagher.”
The question now is which school is going to be lucky enough to add Gallagher to their program? Gallagher gave PSN some insight into where he currently stands in terms of his decision.
I will be taking the rest of my official visits to figure out what I want to do,” said Gallagher.
Gallagher tells PSN that he is still considering eight schools but has official visits set to visit West Virginia from June 3-5, Notre Dame from June 10-12, Oklahoma State from June 13-15 and Penn State from June 17-19.
