Texas DE Likes Cougars

Total Blue Sports continues to investigate recruits that made their way to BYU's summer football camp at the end of June. TBS caught up with Scott Milligan, a defensive end from the Lone Star state, and found out about his camp experience and how his recruiting experience is shaping up.

The BYU football team is sure to be after some big name defensive line recruits in light of the fact that six defensive lineman on the 2005 roster will not be returning. The recent news that Michael Marquart will transfer away from the Provo campus, only heightens the need.

Scott Milligan a 6'3', 250-pound defensive end from Robinson High School in Robinson, Texas is one of the players BYU will consider when looking to rebuild its defensive line corps. Milligan just got back from a week at BYU's summer camp and said he felt a good vibe from the coaches.

"I talked to the coaches a lot and they seem to be pretty interested in me," Milligan said. "Coach Mitchell and Kafusi were the main coaches I talked to. Coach Mitchell said he will be down to Texas to watch my games."

Milligan also went to the University of Texas camp this summer and says the coaches there seemed to be interested also. Milligan will visit camps at SMU and Houston as well; however, he said his number one choice is BYU.

"I've always loved BYU," Milligan said. "I loved at the camp how they stressed family values, because I'm big on families."

At BYU's summer camp, Milligan ran 4.78 forty and had 31-inch vertical leap. TBS will keep in contact with Milligan as the season goes on to see if he gets that offer from BYU that he is looking for.
