Potomac (Va.) junior All-Met offensive lineman Donta Wilkins still considers Virginia his front-runner over offers from Virginia Tech, Boston College, North Carolina State and, most recently, Penn State.
“I love it down there [in Charlottesville], but it’s a blessing to have options,” Wilkins said. “It’s people’s dream to go play Division I, and I’ll get to do it. I’m open to everything. I just want to give everybody a chance.”
The 6-foot-3, 295-pound Wilkins has visited Virginia and Virginia Tech and might schedule visits to the other schools that have offered. He said that he would like to hear from Miami, because that has always been a favorite school of his.
Wilkins and his Potomac teammates are currently participating in the out-of-season practices now allowed by the Virginia High School League. But he might have played his final game on his home field. Potomac is likely to play all of its games on the road this season as a new turf field is installed at the Dumfries school.
Potomac finished 4-6 last year, losing to teams with a combined 53-18 record.
