Millwood (Winchester, VA) running back PK Kier verbally committed to James Madison University on April 16, but that hasn’t stopped other schools from extending scholarship offers. You can now add Virginia to the list of schools that have offered the 5’11”, 205-pound rising senior.
Ivy League schools Harvard and Yale offered scholarship opportunities to Kier in late April before Bronco Mendenhall extended an offer today. In addition to the aforementioned schools, Marshall, Texas State and Bucknell have offered as well.
