TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Todd Galloway, a senior at Notre Dame Academy in Middleburg, Va., has signed a National Letter of Intent to play men’s basketball at Florida State announced Seminole head coach Steve Robinson. Galloway averaged 17.0 points and 6.5 assists as a junior while guiding his team to a 30-7 overall record during his junior season.
The Baltimore, Md., native is ranked as the nation’s 35th-best high school player entering the 2001-02 season by ESPN.COM. He has been ranked among the nation’s top 20 point guards by many of the recruiting services.
“Todd fills the most critical need for our basketball team entering next season,” said Robinson. “We are losing Delvon Arrington after this season and now we have a player who is listed as one of the top-40 in the country. I think offensively, he is a better shooter than Delvon was coming into college. He has a strong ability to drive the ball to the basket and as a point guard he really values the possession of the ball. We are extremely happy to have the young man in our program. He’s going to be a great addition to our program.”
Galloway is 6-0, 175 pounds and is the first piece to a strong recruiting season for the Seminoles. He gave a verbal commitment to Robinson and the Seminoles in late August and signed his letter of intent today, the first day of the early signing period for high school players.
Galloway chose the Seminoles over Wake Forest, Miami (Fla.) South Carolina, Iowa State and Xavier University among others.
Galloway played well this past summer for the Baltimore Elite AAU team and saw his personal stock rise on every recruiting list. He was named to the All-Tournament team at the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas. In the championship game of that tournament, he scored 35 points to guide his team to the victory and the tournament championship.
Galloway is playing his senior season at Notre Dame Academy after playing two seasons at St. Frances Academy and one at City College High School in Baltimore. He was an All-City Baltimore selection by the Baltimore Sun as a junior last season.
