“Aliquippa has always had athletes.” How many times have you heard those words? Well, this year is no different. Solvahn Moreland and Will Gipson have already committed to D1 schools and MJ Devonshire will more than likely choose a power 5 school. Now, you can say they have 5 division one recruits on a roster that is literally the size of a single a roster. Deoveon Crute has made his choice and will stay local to play for Duquesne. Deoveon will be a prized possession for Duquesne as his abilities and talent by far outshine his size. The 6-0, 180 pound receiver is able to find the space and get up for the ball. He’s got that breakaway speed, and now he has a home next year to continue to display it. He made his announcement on twitter:
