Former Peters Township Star, Florida DB Donovan McMillon Enters Transfer Portal



It’s safe to say that Pennsylvania produced some legitimate college football talent in the class of 2021.

The likes of St. Joe’s stars Kyle McCord and Marvin Harrison Jr. wound up at Ohio State, Gateway’s Derrick Davis Jr. ended up at LSU and St. Joe’s Jeremiah Trotter ended up at Clemson and Pittsburgh natives Elliot Donald and Nahki Johnson stayed home at Pitt. It was a talented class.

Peters Township’s Donovon McMillon was perhaps the fastest-rising recruit in the class. He committed to Florida, over Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech, but after two seasons, he’s entered the transfer portal.

McMillon played in all 25 games over his two seasons at Florida, but the majority of his action came in a special teams role. Over his two seasons in Gainesville, he recorded 30 tackles (18 solo) and a tackle for loss in a limited defensive role.

It remains to be seen which schools will reach out to McMillon now that he is in the transfer portal, but he should not have a shortage of suitors.

As a player who has burned two seasons of eligibility already without any legitimate play time, McMillon will have two more seasons of eligibility going forward — and the ability to redshirt.

When McMillon was coming out of Peters Township, he was the 125th-ranked recruit in the class of 2021 (sixth-ranked safety and sixth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania) by 247Sports and he was rated as the 199th-ranked recruit in the class (14th-ranked safety and eighth-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania).

Pitt isn’t hurting for contributors in the secondary, but a player of McMillon’s caliber would certainly be a welcomed addition. McMillon’s recruiting process will likely feature Pitt in the coming days.

well his caliber is a special teams player but he hasn’t cracked the Florida secondary (and their D is awful). Who knows if he can play DB?

Difficult to make a projection until the reasons for him leaving are known.
