Some scholarship offers just mean more.

For Chillicothe High School (Ohio) tight end Tayvion Galloway, that offer came Wednesday from Miami (Fla.).

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound jumbo pass-catcher, rated the nation's No. 4 tight end in the class of 2024, already holds more than 20 scholarship offers, but growing up a fan of the Hurricanes he was floored by a phone conversation with tight end coach Stephen Feld.

"I found out through a phone call with Coach Field," Galloway said. "I was honestly extremely ecstatic and it’s just a true blessing from God that I am in the position to possibly one day play for my dream school." 

He is already working on setting up a visit to see if the reality matches his dream.

"I'm visiting at the end of June," Galloway said. "I want to get a feel for the staff. I want to build on this relationship and I want to see how much they show their ties to what they can do for athletes outside of football and in the real world and how much they care about family."

Since receiving the offer he has felt the love from the Miami fanbase, who immediately rallied around his message about the Hurricanes being a "dream school." 

"It seems like they are pretty hyped about them offering me, which is pretty smooth to me because I love Miami and them showing love is just adding the icing on the cake," Galloway said.

In truth, the Miami trip is part of a very busy June schedule for the Ohio product, as he will take several trips: Cincinnati (June 2), Penn State (June 5), Auburn (June 10), Alabama (June 15), LSU (June 16), North Carolina (June 18), Michigan (June 23), Miami (June 26; tentative plan) and Florida (July 27; tentative). 

So, while Galloway is over the moon about his latest offer, a future Miami commitment remains far from a certainty. 

Still, Wednesday's offer was an outstanding start for Mario Cristobal's program.
