VT Scores Athletic OL Eric Gallo

The latest rising high school senior to verbally commit to Virginia Tech is Eric Gallo , a 6’3″, 280-pound offensive line prospect out of Council Rock South High School in Holland, Pennsylvania.  Gallo made his commitment just days after he and his family toured Virginia Tech for the first time on an unofficial visit.

“It feels great.  I’m really excited,” Gallo told TechSideline.com.

Gallo came to his decision on Tuesday.  Tuesday night, he gave the good news to new Tech offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

“I really like the school itself, but it was just a gut feeling.  I knew [Virginia Tech] was the place for me,” said Gallo, who also considered offers from Buffalo, Massachusetts, Temple and Villanova.  Pittsburgh and others expressed serious interest.
