OG Donavan Beaver officially signed with West Virginia

Published

on

Spotslyvania (VA) offensive guard Donavan Beavers has signed with the Mountaineers.

Beaver is a 6-foot-7, 295-pound and three-star lineman according to Rivals, making him the second largest lineman on West Virginia’s roster behind Colton McKivitz. The Virginia native was also heavily recruited, claiming offers from Florida, Louisville, Central Florida, and Virginia Tech before committing to the Mountaineers.

Despite his large frame, Beaver is exceptionally quick off the line, allowing him block linebackers with ease. He uses his height well, too, lowering his pads to block smaller defenders and upending bigger, stronger tacklers.

Like many true freshman lineman, Beaver will most likely redshirt in 2019, affording him time to work on his technique and footwork. Given his size, Beaver can easily put on more weight in college, making him that much more impressive.
