Schools Visiting Gallo

P.J. Gallo is up to six offers. A few other schools who plan on visiting within the next week are close to offering, while some of the schools that have already offered, are stopping by his school to visit.

There's no new offers for P.J. Gallo, but with six offers already, more could be on the way. Coaches from Boston College, Duke, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Nebraska have stopped by to visit him at school. It's a couple of new schools that will be visiting next week that Gallo expects the new offers to come from.

"I think Northwestern is close to an offer, I think N.C. State is close to an offer," Gallo said. "They're coming in to school in the next week or so, so we'll see how that goes."

As for the schools that already have visited him at school this week, Gallo says he looks forward to the opportunity to get pulled out of class in order to meet the coaches that come by.

"So far, we've had Boston College and Duke; they were here Monday," Gallo said. "Pitt and Syracuse, they were Monday, and I'd say Nebraska was here too. It was nice getting out of class a little bit."

Gallo recently picked up his verbal offer from Pitt, following an unofficial visit to campus for a spring practice. Receivers coach Mike Norvell was at his school this week to check on him.

"It was definitely real exciting being from PA to get that Pitt offer," Gallo said. "It's cool. I've always—I don't want to say watching them on TV every week—but it's definitely something special, something to be said playing for your own state."

Though he's listed as a tight end prospect, Gallo is being recruited as a ‘Panther'—the hybrid defensive end/linebacker position. Gallo says whether he plays offense or defense is not a big deal. He is excited when talking about the Panther position, especially after seeing it up close and in person when he came up for one of the spring practices.

"I think is an awesome position, a 3-4 linebacker," Gallo said. "It's a very versatile position. It's a guy who can do a lot of things; rush the passer, drop back in coverage. It suits my game very well."

One of the reasons he's being recruited as a Panther is his versatility, something he feels is his strong suit.

"It's the best asset to my game, being an athletic tight end or defensive end," Gallo added. "I can hang with the big offensive linemen, and also hang with the receivers and defensive backs. I think it's definitely a great position for me and a strong position for me. I think I would do well."

Up next for Gallo—two more spring game visits. He will be at West Virginia's spring game on Friday, followed by a trip to Maryland's spring game on Saturday.
