Scout's Take: West Virginia WR commit

West Virginia just picked up a wide receiver commitment from Florida and so lets take a closer look at what he's like as a prospect.

What to Like: No matter how you slice it, Millines is a playmaker at the prep level. Whether he's on offense, defense, or making a difference on special teams, the one thing he does is make plays. He averaged over 25 yards per catch on offense as a junior. At 6-feet, he's big enough to be an outside receiver in college and has enough speed to stretch a defense vertically. He's an athlete with hands and good playmaking skills. Everyone's looking for those types of things and Millines is one of the better ones you'll find in south Florida for doing those things.

What may concern you: He missed several games last season because of a thumb injury so he still needs to prove that he can play at a high level throughout an entire season. He should have no problems doing so but he still needs to prove it. He also runs away from most of the competition at the small school level so it'll be interesting to see how he transitions to playing major college football when he'll be forced to become a more technical receiver instead of being one that can just flat out run by people to make things happen. He'll need to develop some of the smaller points of his game to really make the most of his physical tools.

Bottom Line: West Virginia's getting one of the better WR prospects in south Florida. He's a playmaker from a real good area for players and they out-recruited some heavy hitters for him. Florida offered him over the summer. Tennessee has offered. It's a real nice pickup for Doc Holliday and West Virginia.
