Oklahoma State 2023 Four-Star Athlete Target Moves Up Commitment Date

May 24, 2022

STILLWATER – Exactly one month ago today, Oklahoma State made the top 8 for one of the top 2023 athlete prospects in the country, four-star Rodney Gallagher. Along with the Cowboys, Gallagher included Notre Dame, Oregon, Penn State, Pitt, Texas, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

Gallagher was set to commit on July 4, with a couple of official visits taking place through June, including to Stillwater and Oklahoma State the 15th-17th. Well, his commitment timeline has been moved up considerable as he’ll be making his decision on Wednesday, May 25 at 2 p.m. CT.

With his commitment moved up, it will be interesting to see if he still decides to make his official visits, or if he’s completely made up his mind.

Gallagher, who’s listed at 5-10, 160-pounds, is a dual-threat quarterback in the 2023 class. This past season as a junior, he went 104-of-179 for 1,365 yards and 12 touchdowns through the air, while carrying the ball 169 times for 1,130 yards and 21 touchdowns. These numbers came after playing wide receiver during his first two years of high school.

He was also dominant on the basketball court this past year as he averaged 18.6 points a game as a junior, helping Laurel Highlands to a 27-1 overall record and a trip to the Pennsylvania 5A state quarterfinals.

He will need to bulk up in size at whichever school he lands at, but his speed, athleticism and frame makes him an ideal slot receiver or receiver out of the backfield. Has very good downfield vision and breakaway speed and isn’t afraid of contact in the middle of the field.

Gallagher is listed as the No. 97 overall prospect in the 2023 class, the No. 9 athlete and the No. 2 ranked prospect out of Pennsylvania.
