Cabell Midland DE wants WVU offer

With offers flying out of the Puskar Center these days, one in-state prospect is working to earn one of those offers.

Cabell Midland High School (WV) junior defensive end/tight end Reese Donahue is making the trip to Morgantown 1545001_9cb234f914654c6e8df79f45b91b51aathis weekend for Junior Day.

Reese, 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds led the state in sacks with 18.5, and now he’s looking to sack a Mountaineer offer this weekend.

“I have been a WVU fan my entire life,” Donahue said. “It’s an honor to be able to be a part of something like this, even if it is a Junior Day.”

“They have been recruiting me pretty hard.” he said.

In talking to Donahue, he’s a kid who lives in the moment. Although he feels that he had a good season at Midland, he remains humble, but wants more in his senior season. We had a chance to talk about his season and what it’s like to play against the Class AAA competition.

“I believe it’s really good, but there isn’t a reason West Virginia doesn’t get more attention,” he said. “Sure, talent is spread out and you have to look, but it’s here.”

“I would take my team any play anywhere…. and we would hold our own.” he said.

Donahue admits if a WVU offer does come this weekend it will be hard not to pull the trigger.

As far as the possibilities of an offer?

“I hope it does. I can only hope for the best.” Donahue said.

After talking to the young man, we hope he gets one as well.
