The Michigan Wolverines have officially recieved confirmation that Jeremy Gallon will be eligible to compete for a spot on the two-deep roster for the Fall 2009 season. The speedy Floridian apparently had problems qualifying to play for Rich Rodriguez and his staff this fall.
Gallon had many Michigan fans worrying about whether he would make it on the roster for the much anticipated 2009-10 season. Fans can rest easy now that his test scores are in.
The 5'9 all purpose back is a perfect fit for the Michigan offense. Gallon is likely to compete with incumbent slot recievers Martavious Odoms, Terrance Robinson, and Roy Roundtree. Incoming freshman JeRon Stokes and Teric Jones will also challenge him at the slot position. Rivals.com rated Gallon as a four-star player and the #11 athlete prospect in the country. Coach Rodriguez even hailed him as "one of the most productive players in Florida."
In Gallon's junior campaign, he amassed about 30 touchdowns with over 2,000 yards of total offense. Look for Jeremy Gallon to challenge for a spot on special teams as well.
*Note: Michigan is still waiting for star DB Justin Turner of Ohio to become eligible.
