Badgers Make Quick Impact with Gallaspy

Greensboro (NC) Southern Guliford senior running back Reggie Gallaspy already held a top five before Wisconsin entered the picture. After looking into the Badgers and their running back tradition, the three-star prospect wants to see the Badgers.

Wisconsin has one running back commit in its class by securing a pledge from Missouri City (TX) Marshall tailback Davon Crookshank, but are vigorously looking around the nation to find that 1-2 punch in its backfield. Badger running back coach Thomas Brown has evaluated plenty of options to be that next candidate and extended out a new offer to Greensboro (NC) Southern Guliford senior running back Reggie Gallaspy.

“I found out about the interest from Wisconsin when Coach Brown followed me on Twitter and asked me if I was still open and stuff,” Gallaspy told BadgerNation. “Then a few days later I ended up with an offer. My reaction was shocked because I’m still being able to pick up an offer as a senior.”

Gallaspy has led his team to a 4-0 start, and he has already totaled 1,054 yards and 14 touchdowns. Last Friday he had 296 yards on 26 carries and four touchdowns in a 42-13 victory. The Badgers stick out to the three-star Gallaspy because of the program’s affinity for running the football.

“I like Wisconsin,” Gallaspy said. “I like their offense production and for them to be close to most of my family, which a lot of them live in Michigan.”

The 5-11, 215-pound back stands as the No. 82 ranked tailback in the country and had narrowed his list of over 17 offers down to a top five of Arkansas, Duke, Michigan State, N.C. State and Vanderbilt. Now that the Badgers have offered, Gallaspy plans to take an official visit to Madison.

“It is high Wisconsin can make that top list, but I just want to see it before I make any decisions,” Gallaspy said. “I do not have any official visits set yet. I also do believe my playing style will fit into Wisconsin’s system perfectly. There is a possibility I could be playing in Wisconsin next season.”
