Milon Has High Expectations For Junior Year

After a breakout sophomore campaign, 2015 Oviedo (Fla.) shooting guard Matt Milon has high expectations for his junior season and has over a dozen college programs prying for his services on the hardwood.

Leading the Lions to a 20-9 record as a sophomore in 2012, 2015 Oviedo (Fla.) shooting guard Matt Milon is wanted man on the court by opposing defenses, as well as off the court by collegiate programs throughout the country.

The sharpshooting wing led Oviedo in scoring last year with 20.3 point per game, 5.5 rebounds, while shooting 48 percent from the field and 39 percent from 3-point range.

For his upcoming junior campaign, Milon has been on the hardwood all hours of the day seeking to improve all aspects of his game.

"What I've been doing to prepare for the season is to work as much and efficiently as I can," Milon said. "Whether that's 5am workouts, late night workouts, or after practice. I try to stay in the gym and weight room to make sure that I'm constantly improving and not staying the same."

Entering the season, Milon has very high expectations and praise for the 2013-14 Lions.

All of the long hours and hard work have earned the Oviedo standout offers from UCF, Wichita State, Oregon State, Purdue, Davidson, Virginia Tech and Auburn amongst others.

One school that's showing significant interest and hasn't offered Milon is coach Stan Heath's team - the South Florida Bulls.

"I've talked to coach Roccaforte a couple times," Milon said. "They want me to come to campus soon so I can see the school, facilities and meet with coach Heath, but I haven't been able to set a date to get down there."

Milon says he has no visits currently set up and hopes to make a decision before next year's season.
