Jeremy Gallon Goes Blue

The recruiting sites are reporting that FL receiver Jeremy Gallon has pledged his word to become a Michigan Wolverine. Gallon is a small and speedy player (5-9, 175, 4.5) in the mold of Martavious Odoms or Terrance Robinson. He is the 9th Michigan commitment in the 2009 class.

Recruiting Notes
Gallon emerged on the radar as I was out of comission, and things moved quickly for Michigan. Shortly after the Wolverines offered, they were right near the top of the list. Gallon ended his recruitment by giving a verbal commitment to Rich Rodriguez.

Player Notes
Gallon is small, shifty, and speedy. This is clearly a skill set that Rich Rodriguez covets, and Gallon will likely play the slot position once he dons the winged helmet. He was a high school QB, but much like Terrance Robinson, this was a matter of putting an athlete, rather than a passer, under center. Rivals has a much higher opinion of Gallon than does Scout, ranking him the #5 athlete, and placing him within their top 100.

Thanks to reader Will for being the first to break the news to me.

    is it harder to project a qb who changes positions…scout has him at a really low three…rivals has him as a high four star…i remember looking up and saw michael crabtree was a high school qb and he received a 1 star by scout.

    I think Gallon plays QB in the wing T which takes advantage of his speed. He mostly ran with limited throwing, if I have my info correct. If not someone correct me.

    Yeah, he only had 68 attempts all last year.

    There will be a more substantive Gallon update soon.
