ANALYSIS:

Kendall Milton is quickly developing into one of the most sought after players of the 2020 football recruiting class and one of the top running backs in the Valley. When given the ball, Milton does not hesitate to pick a hole and get going. He’s got the size and strength to power the ball when needed. He also has the speed and agility to turn the corner when needed. When Milton squares his shoulders to the defender they often have a hard time bringing him down. He’s got great hands which could be an asset in the passing game as well. Where Milton could use some work would be his ability to block on passing plays which can easily improved with coaching. Milton has great feel for the game and great composure at this point of his high school career.

FRESNO STATE IMPACT:

Fresno State has been criticized for the lack of recruiting in the valley and Kendall Milton is one that they have to recruit hard moving forward. When the new head coach arrives at Fresno State Milton needs to be one of the ones to be a priority in the recruiting the valley strategy that many are asking for. Though he’s only a freshman the Bulldogs would be wise to take a serious stand on Milton by offering him a scholarship. Right now Fresno State is one of Milton’s top choices and in order for the Bulldogs to stay at the top and offer now would be wise at this point in his recruiting process. At 6-foot-2 200 pounds Milton already has good size as a freshman and is only going to get bigger. An offer would be a wise investment in his future recruitment.
