Gallon names out-of-state leader

Jeremy Gallon is one of the most exciting prospects from the Sunshine State. Gallon, 5-8 and 165 pounds, plays quarterback for Apopka (Fla.) High School but projects as a wide receiver at the next level.
"Most schools want me as a receiver," Gallon said. "I can make people miss. I know I need to work on my route running but I believe that will come fairly easy to me."
According to his high school coach, Rick Darlington, Gallon is one of the strongest players on the team. At 165 pounds he can power clean 310 pounds.
"I really started hitting the weights my sophomore year. I have worked hard. I also bench presses 265 pounds."
Gallon is quick as a cat in the pocket, showcasing elusiveness and very good speed. He can make something happen out of nothing and provide the big play, whether it's in the air or on the ground. Last season as a junior he completed 65% of his passes and didn't throw an interception. He also rushed for 1,700 yards and 23 scores.
"I think I just have good instincts and athletic ability. But it's also good coaching."
According to Gallon he has scholarship offers from Michigan, Auburn, Florida International, UAB, Kansas, UCF, Iowa State and Iowa. Right now he has an out-of-state leader in the Wolverines.
"Michigan leads. They will run the spread offense and you know Michigan will have a good team that will play hard. They have good coaches and I think I fit their scheme. I should have a chance to play early.
"I also like FIU, Iowa, and Kansas.
"I haven't seen anyone. I hope to see some schools this summer but nothing is planned yet. It will likely come down to where I feel comfortable. I want to take all my visits and see what feels best."
