With one scholarship already on his resume 2016 T.L. Hanna High School guard Brevin Galloway is anxious to recover from surgery and make a big impression on college coaches during his junior season. The talented guard sat down with us recently to talk about his injury, play on the AAU circuit, and recruitment.
Having grown about an inch since the end of the season Galloway now stands 6'1 and he's in the midst of resting and healing after a surgery that will sideline him for a while.
"I had an extra bone in my heel. It was called Os Trigonum Syndrome. Wasn't anything major, it was swollen and I couldn't be as flexible in my left foot as I could in my right because of the bone stopping my motion."
The surgery was a success and Galloway talks about what timeline the doctors expect him to be on moving forward.
"The doctors said I should be back 6-8 weeks but I'm giving it 10-12 weeks to fully recover and get even stronger."
The 2016 prospect talked about how his season went on the AAU circuit despite the plaguing injury.
"I played the whole AAU season battling with the pain. I thought I played good to be battling with a foot injury that kept me from being as explosive as I could be. I would say I was at 70%. It would throb during and after games."
A number of schools are still showing a strong interest to go along with his offer from UNC-Wilmington. He shared that list of suitors with us.
"I'm hearing from Davidson, Wofford, and Furman are real heavy on me now. The head coaches text me regularly checking up on me. Clemson, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia Tech, UNC-Asheville, Harvard, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Maryland-Eastern Shore are some of the others I've been hearing from."
The 2016 prospect says he plans on taking some visits come this season as well.
"Furman called asking me could I visit on the 30th so that's already set up. I will definitely visit the local schools like Clemson, South Carolina, and Wofford too."
With his junior season coming up Galloway talked about what some of the goals he's set for his team and himself when things get underway.
"As far as the team goes I want to help my team win region again and advance further in the playoffs. Which we will, because we'll have that fight in us after losing Gaffney in the 2nd round last season."
"In my opinion, I'll be the best guard in our region, I'm just that confident. I have nothing slowing me down like I did last year. So individually, I plan on winning Region 4-AAAA player of the year."
To do that and as well as impress more college coaches to try and secure additional offers the 2016 prospect talked about what he wants to show all coaches during his junior season.
"Defense! Definitely locking up on defense. I tried to emphasize that in July, by being more vocal as a leader and playing with more energy on defense."
Asked what schools he's wanting to hear more from come this season he replied, "Clemson, Mississippi State, Davidson, Wofford, Georgia Tech...I want them sending mail, texting me, and calling me nonstop."
