After months of getting recruited by some of the top programs in the country, it’s finally decision day for one of the WPIAL top recruits in the Class of 2021.
Four-star Peters Township safety Donovan McMillon will announce his college decision as he chooses between Florida, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M and Virginia. Most of the crystal ball predictions have McMillon going to Florida but some believe Virginia Tech still has a shot.
Despite not being permitted to take an official visit, McMillon was able to recently travel on his own to the University of Florida campus with his family in order to get a in-person perspective. McMillon was also able to have on-campus visits to both Virginia Tech and Texas A&M before the coronavirus pandemic shut down in-person recruiting.
McMillon meteoric rise up the college football recruiting rankings was impressive to watch as he received multiple offers per week starting in December and running through April.
Pat Narduzzi and Pitt were McMillon’s first Power Five, offer which opened the floodgates. Aside from the teams in his final five, the play-making safety also received offers from programs such as Arizona State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Penn State, Iowa, Miami, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Stanford, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
The Peters Township star will become the fifth WPIAL player in the Class of 2021 to commit to a Power Five program joining West Mifflin’s Nahki Johnson (Pitt), Union’s Aaron Gunn (Louisville), Central Valley’s Stephon Hall (Pitt) and Beaver Falls Josh Hough (Syracuse).
McMillon is scheduled to make his decision tonight at 7:30 PM.
