Morgantown, West Virginia – Spring Valley High School is located in an unincorporated portion of Wayne County, West Virginia with a postal address in the nearby city of Huntington.
Spring Valley to Morgantown is quickly becoming the move. With the #1 player in the state of West Virginia, Corbin Page, committing to the Mountaineers, West Virginia University now has four players from the small high school outside of Huntington committed.
Graeson Malashevich, a redshirt freshman wide receiver for the Mountaineers, started the trend of Spring Valley High players making WVU their new home. Malashevich was the Gatorade West Virginia Player of the Year while leading Spring Valley to a 13-1 record and an appearance in the state championship game. After redshirting in his first season, Malashevich saw limited time at wide receiver this season, finishing with 1 reception for 30 yards, and he’s also the starting holder and backup punt returner behind Alec Sinkfield.
Wyatt Milum was the next Spring Valley player to chose West Virginia University as his new home. Milum, a four star recruit, was the winner of the Stydahar Award, given to the best interior lineman in the state. Milum, who did not allow a single sack in his entire high school career, was also first team all-state selection in his junior and senior years, and was invited to the US Army All American game.
Following Milum’s commitment, former four star recruit, Doug Nester, decided to transfer from Virginia Tech and committed to the Mountaineers. Nester, a two-year starter at Virginia Tech, was a three-time WVSWA all-state selection at Spring Valley while leading his school to the Class AAA state championship and also won the Stydahar Award in his senior season.
A day after Nester committed to the Mountaineers, Corbin Page, the top rated recruit in the state of West Virginia in the 2022 class, committed to play his college career at West Virginia University. Page earned second team all state honors this past year in an abbreviated season and is widely considered the #1 high school prospect in the state. Although Page plays tight end at Spring Valley, he could potentially join Milum and Nester on the offensive line if his body continues to develop.
West Virginia starting quarterback Jarret Doege weighed in on social media, referring to WVU as “Spring Valley U.”
That’s four players from Spring Valley High School with huge potential at West Virginia University. The pipeline from Huntington to Morgantown has become a very real thing!
