"I had a good time at Mississippi State," said Milton. "I watched them practice and I liked it.

"The guys were all real hyped up, but they hold each other accountable and I really liked that."

Milton reports that the coaching style of Bulldog defensive line boss, David Turner, caught his attention.

"The D line coach doesn't just do the same, regular drills that everybody else does," said Milton. "He does the things that he has learned over the years and he uses the drills that he likes based on his experience.

"I like that a lot and I like how the guys all seem to like and respect him, but they ain't all buddy, buddy either."

The Bulldogs are the latest in a long line of college scholarship offers.

"I have 17 or 18 offers now, but this one is one of my more exciting offers," said Milton. "It's not that far from home and I really liked it up there a lot.

"It was a lot nicer than I was expecting it to be. I liked it."

Heading into the spring, Milton is considering his options and preparing for the 2014 prom.

The talented defensive tackle will turn his full focus towards his college decision in the coming months.

"I am planning on making my decision somewhere around August," said Milton. "Everybody is even right now. I'm wide open.

"Every college program preaches family and I want to really be part of something like that.

"The position coach is going to be an important part of things for me, because I want to have a coach I have a good relationship with.

"I want to go to a school that's winning too."
