Any West Virginia fans who wants their team to start going after “Power 5” players, WVU has now put themselves in the mix for one drawing tons of interest around the country who plays a position of need for the Mountaineers.
Donovan McMillon, who made himself available in the transfer portal after spending the last two seasons at Florida, posted that he has received an offer from West Virginia on Wednesday.

One advantage WVU may have over the many other programs who have made an offer to McMillion is geography. McMillon is a former four-star prospect out of Peters Township in Western Pennsylvania, although Pitt has also offered the star safety.
McMillon (6-foot-1, 205 pounds) committed to Florida over a list of finalists that included Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech, all back in the running for him again. Minnesota and Boston College have extended offers as well.
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. It’s very likely McMillon would see more action on defense at WVU based on the current station in the Mountaineers’ secondary.
Adding a player with the experience and pedigree of McMillon, could provide a boost to depleted WVU secondary that struggled throughout the 2022 season and won’t have the luxury of hoping for a full season of star cornerback Charles Woods, who decided to transfer to SMU.
