Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln has been on of Florida State's top pipelines for football talent. In the last few years, the Noles have successfully singed several prospects from Lincoln, including, Antonio Cromartie, Pat Watkins, Cro Thorpe, and Andrew Henry-Kennon. The Seminole coaching staff would like to keep the pipeline flowing. This year, offensive coordinator Jeff Bowden has his eye on several players from Lincoln, including linebacker Rodney Gallon.

"Coach Woody from Florida and Jeff Bowden from Florida State have already been by the school and they both have offered me," the all-big bend selection said Thursday.

In addition to Florida and Florida State several other schools have been by the school and taken notice.

"I've also been offered Iowa State, Auburn, Tennessee, Louisiana State, Florida and North Carolina," the 6-foot-1 and 202 pound standout with 4.5 40 speed said.

"He got great closing speed," Lincoln head football coach Dave Wilson said. ‘He's reminds me physically of Derrick Brooks."

Gallon, who had 119 tackles as a junior, grew up a fan of Florida and Miami but is open.

"I am open and I need time to do some research," Gallon said. "My top schools are Auburn, Florida State, Tennessee, Florida and Miami."

The Tallahassee native also excels in the classroom by carrying a 3.2 core grade point average.

Note: Gallon is friends with all the players who are currently playing for Florida State. He's also friends with former Lincoln standouts Greg Threat (Miami) and Gavin Dickey (Florida.)
