Reset Text Input /people picker

I'm new to power apps and have been building my first App. It's a Service Desk. I creating a custom form to get the layout I want. I created a people picker using a textInput box and a gallery.  When using the patch function code below. Everything works except the reset of namedUserImput.text.

Patch Formula:

Patch(Tickets, Defaults(Tickets), {Requester: NamedUserImput.Text, Status: StatusDropdown.SelectedText, Priority: PriorityDropdown.SelectedText, 'Brief Problem Description': BriefDescriptionInput.Text, Category: CategoryDropdown.SelectedText, AdditionalDetails: AdditionalDetailsInput.Text, AssignedTechnician: DefaultTech.SelectedText });
Navigate(MainScreen, ScreenTransition.Fade)


Text Input formulas:

On Select: UpdateContext({var_nameduser: ""});Reset(NamedUserImput)

Reset: true

Default: selectedperson.DisplayName 


Gallery Formulas:

Items: If(Len(NamedUserImput.Text)>2,

Default: {}


I've tried several different options and have had no success. I feel like its because I need to get the gallery to show as blank  as default since the reset control sets it back to default.  If you need anymore information or clarifying details please let me know.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

I appreciate the reply , but I have tried that method several times and it doesn't seem to work. I honestly feel the solution is buried in the gallery I used for the people picker I just find the right place or formula to get it to clear itself. I would definitely be interested in any other Ideas you would have.
