Pitt Begins Pursuit of Former Peters Township Star, Florida S Donovan McMillon

Published

on

Pitt’s pursuit of one-time WPIAL targets has gotten off to a strong start this offseason, as former Pine-Richland star Phil Jurkovec decided to come home. And he might not be alone.

It didn’t work out for Pitt the first time around as Peters Township star Donovan McMillon committed to Florida, but as he’s now back in the transfer portal, Pitt is once again targeting the former four-star safety.

Secondary coach Cory Sanders extended an offer to McMillon Wednesday, joining a list that includes Minnesota, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Mississippi State — and will continue to grow.

McMillon (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) committed to Florida over a list of finalists that included Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech. Pitt, which was the first school to offer McMillon originally, was not a finalist.

McMillon played in all 25 games over the last two seasons at Florida, but he mainly saw time as a special teams gunner. He recorded 30 tackles (18 solo) and a tackle for loss in limited playing time.

According to PFF, McMillon took just 64 defensive snaps over five games this season.

Pitt’s defensive back depth is deep, especially if Erick Hallett decides to return next season, but McMillon would be a standout addition to the room. And it’s no surprise he’s a top defensive target in the portal.

He needs to loan some of that mop to Duzzi…..who’s getting quite thin up there.
