Defender May Not "Keep The Home Fires Burning"

This lesser known Georgia prospect has some big time offers and has the Tigers on his list of favorites.

Rodney Milsap has been one of the better players in South Georgia for a couple of seasons now, but he's been a hard player track down. TheInsiders caught up with him on Tuesday night and the Fitzgerald star is claiming big offers.

"I have offers from Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and three more that I can't think of right now," Milsap said.

Who's among the 6-1, 241-pound defender's favorite teams right now?

"I like Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Florida State. Florida is my leader because it's been my dream since I was little to play for them. I love the way they play."

What stands out about the three other teams on his list?

Auburn: "Their coaches are real cool and the school is nice. It felt like home to me when I was at their camp."

Georgia: "That's my hometown team right there. I'm a big Georgia fan too, but Florida has just been my team since I was a kid."

Florida State: "The crowd is the big thing. I love it when the chop gets going."

What is Milsap looking for most in a school?

"I want to go somewhere I can feel safe and comfortable at," he explained. "A place that can help me better myself in the classroom as well as on the field. I'd like to major in sports medicine."

Can we expect an early decision from the Purple Hurricane's star?

"I don't think so," Milsap noted. "I'm going to take my visits and find a place where I can feel them and they can feel me."

The upcoming senior just completed summer school where he gained a letter grade of 'B' or better in all of his classes and will be a player to watch closely this Fall.
