Milton Has Three Favorites

One of Georgia's top cornerback prospects, Chris Milton, visited two schools in the state of North Carolina last week. Wake Forest and North Carolina were the two schools that the 6-0, 175-pound defensive back wanted to check out, and Milton had a great time at both schools. DeaconSports caught up with him shortly after he made those trips to find out how the visits went.

"At Wake Forest it wasn't really a camp," Chris Milton noted. "I just went up to see the campus with my parents. That was my first time in North Carolina and it went real well. I sat down and talked to Coach Grobe for a while. We ate dinner at the stadium and it was good. They had a little kids' camp going on so they were kind of busy while we were there. I saw some of the school and we went to one of the academic advisers. She explained a little bit of everything."

Milton wasn't shy when it came to evaluating the overall impact of the trip.

"I like them a lot," he said of Wake Forest. "I think that really helped me out in my decision. They really helped their chances."

Though the trip to Wake Forest was both informative and enjoyable, Milton admitted that he had a great time in Chapel Hill as well. The Tar Heels figure to be formidable competition for Milton.

"I went to UNC and that went well also," he recalled. "I talked to coach Butch Davis and I talked to my recruiting coordinator. They had a camp going on there as well."

Milton said he camped at Georgia not too long ago and he worked out on different days as a wide receiver and a defensive back. He said he performed better as a defensive back, and Georgia has invited him back to their Dawg Night in mid-July. He isn't sure whether he will make that trip yet because his football team has a passing tournament around that time and he wants to participate in that.

Despite the fact that Georgia is interested and the home state school, Milton is looking in other directions for now.

"I'd say I'm looking at three schools," he said. "Tennessee, Wake Forest and North Carolina. I'd like to visit Tennessee before the end of the summer. If I'm able to do it then I will, if not I won't.

"There are two of those schools I'm kind of torn between right now. I'm just looking at all the good and the bad with each.

"We're having a family reunion in Virginia over July 4th week and our whole family is going to be there. I might do it (make a commitment) during the banquet then or just wait until the end of the summer."
