Gallaspy Signs On

GREENSBORO, N.C. --- Southern Guilford (NC) tailback Reggie Gallaspy signed his scholarship agreement with NC State on Friday afternoon.

Over the weekend NC State landed a huge commitment from Southern Guilford (NC) tailback Reggie Gallaspy who was in Raleigh for his official visit. Gallaspy chose the Wolfpack over offers from Duke, Michigan State, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and several other high-major programs.

Today, he signed a scholarship agreement with the Wolfpack at a press conference at his high school.

"It feels good to make it official," said Gallaspy. "I found what I was looking for in NC State, and now I can focus on the rest of my senior year in school and on the field.

"It just makes my life more easy. There's less stress. I don't have to worry about finding where I want to go. The decision is made. I can focus on school."

A dynamic running back, Gallaspy has already rushed for 1,604 yards and scored 21 touchdowns in six games to lead his team to an undefeated start.

"I'd be shocked if there's a better running back in the state than Reggie," said Southern (NC) Guilford head coach Darryl Brown. "He's the total package. He's an outstanding young man and a great player. He always does the right things and wants to do the right things. It's been a pleasure to coach him.

"Physically, there's nothing he can't do well. He has great vision, great balance. Everyone knows about his balance and no one ever catches him. He has the speed to pull away at 220 pounds."

Holding offers from all over the country, Gallaspy found what he was looking for in NC State.

"I wanted to be close to my mom," he said. "NC State has a family-oriented team, and I love the coaches. It got real hype when I told them I was going there and that made me feel even better about it."

An early enrollee, Gallaspy says that he has turned his attention to helping the Wolfpack land other top recruits.

"I've been talking a lot with a bunch of the commitments and the recruits," said Gallaspy. "Darian Roseboro and Emanuel McGirt, I've been talking with them. I'm talking with some commitments like T.J. [McCoy] from Florida and Jarius [Morehead] from around here.

"A lot of them were at the game for Florida State. It was fun having all of them around. We were just joking around a lot and hanging out."
