Gallon Now Up To Five

Lakeland (FL) George Jenkins linebacker Eric Gallon has seen his recruitment take off in the past few months, and the offers are starting to come in. Gallon now holds five offers.

Eric Gallon has made a name for himself the past few years as a linebacker at Lakeland (FL) George Jenkins.

Gallon, 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, can play either inside or the outside spots and college recruiters have taken notice of this 2015 prospect.

"I have added three offers in the past week," Gallon stated. "The latest are from Army, Tennessee State and Buffalo. Every offer means a lot to me, because it's a school telling me they want me in their program."

"No matter what school it is, I'm considering all of them that offer me," he stressed. "Army means a lot because of the prestige of the program, and the fact that they think I'm their kind of guy. Tennessee State offered after seeing me in person at my school."

"Buffalo is good because they are located near to where my dad (Eric Gallon Sr.) coaches at Youngstown State, so I could visit them and Bowling Green when I'm seeing him," he added.

Several other schools are showing interest, including the school his father played for.

"I've visited Kansas State and it's a school I love because my dad played there," he explained. "I was there for the spring game and loved everything about it. The coaches are great and they treat me great. It feels like home to me."

"Right now, I'm the next linebacker to be offered, and something could happen soon," Gallon said. "They will be watching me in spring ball, and if I do well I believe they will be offering."

Gallon would like to make his choice prior to his senior season, but is willing to wait on other offers if need be.
