Milton chose Georgia over Alabama, Ohio State and LSU. He is part of a 2020 recruiting class that is ranked fifth in the nation and third in the SEC, according to 247Sports.
In his junior campaign, Milton ran for 1,337 yards and 27 rushing TDs while also catching seven TDs on 71 yards receiving. The rising senior is tracking as a larger running back with a blend of speed and power that should translate to both college and eventually the NFL.
The 6-foot-2, 220 pounder from Clovis, California, is the 21st ranked player in the nation, good for the third highest recruit from California and fourth highest running back in the country.
