Down to three for Hartnell OL prospect

After two solid seasons, Hartnell OT Mike Milovale (6-4, 310) has garnered quite a bit or recruiting attention from schools all over and this weekend he will take his second official visit as he gets closer to making a decision on where he wants to continue is college football career...

"I'm visiting Louisiana Tech this weekend," Milovale told "I'm leaving (Friday) to go out there and see the school and meet with the coaches and then I'm visiting Hawaii next weekend.

"After that I'll come home and I'll start to figure out where I want to sign."

Besides the two upcoming visits, Milovale has also taken a trip to Middle Tennessee, back in November and he said he enjoyed his time there.

"It was a really good time," Milovale said. "I had never been back to that part of the country before and it was great to meet the coaches and hang out with the players there."

Milovale prepped at Monterey High School in Marina, California and was unable to qualify, so he enrolled at Hartnell to keep playing for a coach that he had spent some time with in high school.

"One of my coaches from when I was a sophomore and junior at Monterey got hired there and I wanted to keep playing for him so I decided to play there," Milovale said. "As a freshman we had a tough season and lost some really tough games, but this year we went 8-3 and we won our bowl game too, so we really improved a lot and it ended the way we all wanted it to end."

Milovale took the time to break down his final three as he gets closer to making a decision...

Middle Tennessee - "When I went there I really liked it. The coaches were really friendly and the school is really good. The players were cool too. I liked it there."

Louisiana Tech - "They offered me after my freshman season and they've kept track of me all the way through all of this. I know they are a rising program and I'm looking forward to visiting them this weekend."

Hawaii - "They got on me late, but after talking to coach (Norm) Chow on the phone, he said he wanted to offer me and I grew up in Samoa, so that is something that is really meaningful to me that I could go back to the Island culture and be around my Polynesian roots."

Milovale will graduate in May and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
