Over the weekend two-star Monroe (Ga.) Monroe Area athlete Michael Gallup had a chance to participate in the in the IMG 7-on-7 National Championship tournament and came away impressed with what he saw.
"I like playing tougher competition," Gallup said. "I like it a lot. It just makes me better. I love playing with the best."
Gallup has recently added offers from Maryland, Missouri, Western Kentucky and East Carolina to go along with the school that offered first, N.C. State.
"They're at the top right now," Gallup said. "I like their offense and the way they move people around and find different ways to get them the ball."
With the Wolfpack as his leader, Gallup said he's going to make an effort to visit sometime soon.
"My mom told me that we can make a trip up there this summer," Gallup said. "I'll probably be up there in the next couple of weeks or so. I talk to [N.C. State wide receivers coach] Frisman Jackson all the time so I'll probably be up there to see him."
In addition to the schools that have already offered, Gallup said he's hoping that nearby Georgia is the next to step up to the plate.
"Georgia is talking to me," Gallup said. "They haven't offered, but I've been up there for camps and everything. I still haven't gotten an offer from them. I'll be at Dawg Night. [Georgia wide receivers coach] Tony Ball told me to be up there so I'll be up there."
