Peters Township’s Donovan McMillon adds LSU offer

Tuesday, April 7, 2020 | 2:55 PM

Donovan McMillon announced his top 15 schools late last month, narrowing a growing list of football scholarship offers.

He might have to add another team or two to the group.

National champion LSU offered the Peters Township junior safety on Tuesday afternoon.

A few hours later, another SEC power, Georgia, got into the act.

His 15 favorites include Pitt, Penn State, Michigan State, Northwestern, Iowa, Michigan, Purdue, Oklahoma, Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Duke and Notre Dame.

McMillon (6-2, 185) is a three-star prospect that ranks as the 18th-best recruit in Pennsylvania in the class of 2021 and the top-rated safety. He gained attention from helping Peters Township reach the WPIAL Class 5A title game last fall.

He just completed a successful wrestling season, reaching the WPIAL and PIAA 182-pound finals. McMillon (41-4), who surpassed 100 career wins, lost both championship matches to Canon-McMillan’s Gerrit Nijenhuis, a Purdue recruit who was named Trib HSSN WPIAL wrestler of the year.
