Update on . . . Keith "Tiny" Gallon

Keith Gallon, a 6'9 forward, is anything but tiny, though that is his nickname. "Tiny" is a member of the class of 2009 and played with the powerhouse Oak Hill (VA) Warriors last year. There had been some speculation on http://www.hoopscooponline.com/ that Gallon would be leaving the school, but I got in touch with Keith himself, and he cleared the air. “No, I’m staying at Oak Hill,” is what his comment on the topic was. Thus, Head Coach Steve Smith will have his big man in the middle next year, and will not have to worry about replacing him. As for Gallon's college options, he mentioned the following six schools as his possible destinations: Arizona, Baylor, Cal, LSU, Mississippi, and USC. "Tiny" says that all six have offered him a scholarship, and he puts Mississippi, Baylor, and Arizona at the top of his list. It will be interesting to see how the recruitment of Keith "Tiny" Gallon plays out, and I'll be sure to keep you posted on how it's coming along.
