The past few months have brought attention and opportunity to Shake Milton's door in a way he may not have imagined likely. The unassuming Oklahoma native has performed very impressively both during live and non-live periods, and this week he's punctuating a travel season that has brought him to the precipice of a high-major future.
A fixture for MoKan Elite, Milton performs numerous essential tasks for his squad. In a victory over the New York Lightning on Friday morning, he made several key drives to stave off a comeback attempt while also steadying his teammates when they began to feel harassed by pressure. He's a very sure handler and passer for a wing with the height to pass over the top of many traps.
He's a pretty good jump shooter as well and a talented overall scorer despite being only slightly above-average in terms of athleticism. College coaches recognize a player when they see one, and Milton's head for the game impresses every bit as much as his skills. A slew of high-majors comprise his current list:
Milton will play out this month, take stock of his offers at that time and then set up official trips. His ultimate decision will be a group affair.
"I'll talk to the MoKan coaches after the summer and figure out my visit schedule," he said. "I'm just taking my time."
