6-1, 225-pound Brooke Pointe (Stafford, VA) rising senior linebacker Donovan Miles emerged this spring as one of the top defensive prospects in the state of Virginia. Each of the first four programs to receive video – Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia – responded with a scholarship offer. More videos have been sent out recently and, while head coach Jeff Berry awaits word from those schools, one other program seems very close to offering.

“All of the guys that have come through for Donovan like Isaiah,” Berry said. “They like him on tape. I think most of them want to watch a little more during his senior season and maybe in camp. He is really excited. He is...
