The Only Constant is Change

Keith Gallon has emerged as one of the top big men in the country and he is beginning to put together the offer list to prove it. Arkansas, Arizona, Cal, Georgetown, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UNLV and USC have all reportedly offered Gallon the chance to be a part of their program. Gallon is just as uncertain about his future as he is about school this fall.

Gallon starred at Oak Hill this past season, but there are no guarantees that he will return this season.

"I am going to school on the 8th, I think," said Keith. "I am probably going to Oak Hill or maybe Modern Day or Mt. Zion. My parents want me to be sure I get my grades, so my mom wants me to be somewhere they are going to stay on me about it. I was really wanting to come home last year after the season and I kind of slipped a little bit. She wants to be sure that doesn't happen again."

This summer Keith had the chance to take in a pair of All-Star camps. He has mixed reviews of his play at both events.

"I went to Lebron and the Omare Stoudamire camp," said Gallon. "I think I did good at Omare and just okay at Lebron. I didn't try to score a lot and I wish I would have. My team didn't need me to, but I should have been a little more aggressive."

Earlier this year Gallon tabbed LSU as his top school and then the Mississippi State Bulldogs overtook the Tigers after an unofficial visit to Starkville. It appears that another contender or two have entered the fray.

"Right now Mississippi State is still real high, but now that Oklahoma has offered they have jumped in the mix too," said the 6-9, 295 pounder. "If signing day were tomorrow I would sign with either Oklahoma, Mississippi State or Cal. I am not real sure which one it would be right now."

The Texas native had once hinted at making a summer time decision, but that time frame appears to have changed too.

"Things have changed a little bit," said Keith. "I am probably going to wait until the middle of the season or something like that. I might do it before then, but I don't know. My mom has been talking to some schools and I want to go somewhere that is going to get my body ready to go on to the next level. That's one of the main things I am looking for."
