WVU Pulls in Two More from PB County

Every year one of the most active out of state schools in Florida is West Virginia. Over the weekend they continued that trend by adding two more prospects from Palm Beach County.

ABOUT THE PLAYERS

Darius Millines: His versatility is huge at the next level. Millines is a player who could play WR, S, or perhaps CB. 6'0, 175ish with athleticism and burst, he has the type of package that schools covet. He has very under rated hands and is a natural receiver.

Travis Bell: Physically he is very similar to Millines. He is another 6'0, 180 pound specimen that can run. One difference is that Bell is destined for the defensive backfield, likely safety. While Bell was good as a junior on the field, there is a lot more potential there.

RECRUITING

Millines received long looks from Miami and Florida, and had a host of schools who had offered. He plays at a smaller, private high school and flew a little under the radar early in the process. He is expected to take a few other official visits.

Bell was a well known name as a sophomore, but struggled a little as a junior on the field. Having said that, many schools were keeping a close eye on him this season. The physicals + pedigree are outstanding. He holds plenty of offers.

FOR WEST VIRGINIA

With WR Fred Pickett and CB Robert Clark already committed for 2010, the Moutaineers are on track to sign the 5-6 they typically land from the Sunshine State. Two WR's, a CB, and a S is exactly how you want to attack Florida, especially in a strong year.

Last year they pulled QB Eugene Smith, don't discount his popularity amongst players in South Florida, particularly team mate Ivan McCartney. While Pickett is at Pahokee now, he was at Glades Central previously (with Bell), that could open the door for Greg Dent, another WR/DB with skills. Of course, they just hosted Chris Dunkley and Matt Elam, two big time recruits who are tight with these guys (all played on Team Palm Beach 7on7). Pahokee DT's Richard Ash and Antonio Ford were also in attendance. Bottom line, West Virginia fans have reason to be very pleased today.
