MORGANTOWN -- Aliquippa High School has been kind to WVU in recent years.\r\nThat statement alone is almost hard to believe.\r\nA once-proud pipeline school to the Mountaineers\u2019 main rival, Pittsburgh, the small western Pennsylvania school has undergone a transformation of sorts at least on the recruiting trail.\r\nThe school has been a factory for the Panthers over the years. From Mike Ditka to Sean Gilbert to Darrelle Revis to Jon Baldwin, the history is deeply entrenched.\r\nBut WVU has made some noise of late, first by signing the top prospect at the school in the 2014 class \u2014 now-senior Dravon Askew-Henry \u2014 as well as his close friend defensive lineman Jaleel Fields. The program unsurprisingly knocked off the Panthers for Henry in a major recruiting win.\r\nThat could be the story in itself, but WVU wasn\u2019t done just yet.\r\nIt happened again last season, when WVU signed four-star safety Kwantel Raines, again beating out Pittsburgh in a Backyard Brawl on the recruiting trail.\r\nCould lightning strike again?\r\nAliquippa once again has a high-profile defensive back on the roster in 2019 cornerback Marlin Devonshire, one of the earliest offers for the Mountaineers. It also was the first scholarship offer that Devonshire received, in January 2017, so the groundwork has been laid.\r\nThe Rivals.com four-star prospect also collected scholarship offers from programs such as Ohio State, Michigan State and, of course, Pittsburgh.\r\nExcept this time the Panthers got a late start, extending a scholarship offer in May, but since that time the rising senior has made trips to the Pitt campus.\r\nDevonshire also has visited Morgantown and will be back for the Showtime Event, on July 27, where he\u2019ll be able to spend time with the coaches and players.\r\nIt\u2019s always key to get top-end talent on campus, and obviously with both Askew-Henry and Raines already in the fold, there\u2019s an opportunity to keep that streak going. It\u2019s hard to believe that the Mountaineers have gotten their foot in the door at a one-time Pittsburgh pipeline, and while two is nice, could the third time be the charm?\r\nWVU hopes so, at a place it likely never expected to have a foot in the door.
