Written by: on Friday, April 3rd, 2020


Peters Township has a nice problem.  The Indians have two highly recruited players with multiple D1 offers.  Safety Donovan McMillan and Linebacker Corban Hondru. Corban has an offers list that’s quite impressive. With Dartmouth, Akron, Penn, Youngstown St, Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, William & Mary and more he had plenty of choices. What he didn’t have was a hard time deciding. Earlier today on twitter he made the announcement that he’s chosen Miami of Ohio.

We caught up with the talented linebacker to ask him about that decision:
