High school football players are in the midst of a two-week contact period on the NCAA recruiting calendar, a 14-day span that’s kept WPIAL juniors busy.

Among them is Peters Township junior Donovan McMillon, who announced offers from Purdue and Miami (Ohio) in the past week. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound safety also holds offers from Akron and Temple.

He received the Miami (Ohio) offer Sunday and Purdue last Tuesday, giving him his first Power 5 school.

McMillon earned all-conference honors in the Allegheny Eight this season and helped Peters Township reached the WPIAL Class 5A finals.

The current contact period lasts from Dec. 1-14.

After a one-day “quiet period” Dec. 15, the recruiting calendar enters a “dead period” from Dec. 16 until Jan. 16. College coaches can have face-to-face interactions with recruits during contact and quiet periods but cannot during dead periods.
