Galloway Has Two at the Top

Zach Galloway is one of the most versatile players the state of Michigan has to offer. As a result, several schools have been recruiting him as an athlete. We caught up with Galloway to find out which of these schools are serious about an offer and who his favorites are.

Any colleges wondering how good Zach Galloway is should ask Ann Arbor Huron. In the second game of this season, Galloway gashed the River Rats for 238 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Since then, opponents have keyed on him, but the 6'3, 200-lb back has still managed to turn in a fine season, rushing for 1108 yards and 16 touchdowns.

His size and versatility (has also caught three touchdowns), has drawn him interest from several schools around the Midwest.

"It has been kind of on a weekly basis, but I talk to Akron, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Grand Valley State, Saginaw Valley State and Northwood," Galloway said, "I've been able to see games at all of them but SVSU and Northwood, I've seen everyone else's."

Galloway says he projects as an "athlete" at most of these schools and the decision on where to play him would likely be made once he got to campus. While no offers have come just yet, he hopes that will change soon.

"No one's said anything besides, wait until end of the season. They kind of want to see my physicality, my speed and ability to make plays."

This past weekend, Galloway visited Grand Valley State and saw the Lakers win a thrilling 48-42 contest over Ashland.

"So far, Grand Valley has given me the best look," he admitted, "I felt comfortable there. They have a good atmosphere and the coaches are welcoming. They kind of look for players that can do more than one thing. They said that would be my best chance -- come up and be an all purpose player."

Saturday was Galloway's second time at GVSU, but the last time was two years ago. Having been on several other visits, he saw no difference between the D2 school and the FBS programs he has been to.

"It was more than I expected because the stadium was full. I wasn't sure what kind of atmosphere they had, but they had a full crowd. I've been to Toledo games and I was more impressed with Grand Valley."

Galloway says the Lakers will decide the details of his recruitment, including exact scholarship figures in the near future. Until then, he will continue to weigh his options and check out other schools, including Akron, who he plans to head back to. He also says the Zips are right up there for his services.

"Right now, I would say Akron and Grand Valley would be my top two."
