2013 Dr Phillips LB/SS Matt Milano wraps up his final spring football game as a Panther and is set…
Junior Day Report: Matt Milano
"The city was much bigger than I expected," he said. "I was thinking Boise was going to be a much smaller town, but it was pretty big. It was a really nice city and I thought everything was just great."
"I had a position meeting with Coach Lake," he stated. "He's really intelligent and I could tell that he knows his stuff. He said he wants a tough kid and one that knows what he's supposed to do."
"They're recruiting me as a Nickel," he said. "I like that position a lot," he added.
He also got to spend some time with his former HS teammate and says Patti had nothing but good things to say about Boise State.
"Nick loves it there," said Milano. "He told me all kinds of great things about the school. He said Coach Pete is a great coach to play for and that he's enjoying it a lot."
"I thought he (Patti) played great," he said. "It was great to be able to watch him and you could see that he has made a lot of progress since he got there."
So, will Boise State offer?
"I think they might," he said. "They haven't said whether they will or not, but I know they're sending Coach Lake down next month to watch me during spring ball. I'll definitely want to show out and play well while he's here."
"I'll go back for the camp if I think Boise is serious about offering me," he said. "I'm going to wait until after spring and see which schools are serious. I'll choose which camps I go to from there."
Milano currently has an offer from Air Force and Northwestern, UCF, Rutgers, USF, and others have been showing interest as well. He says he's looking for an environment where he can get on the field early and compete for playing time right away.
"I'm not looking at the school and how big it is," said Milano. "I'm looking for a place that fits me and will give me the opportunity to play. I just want to be able to play."
"I took my mom, dad, and sister to Boise with me. Nick's parents and his girlfriend came too," he said. "Everyone in my family loved it, but they also said it's really far. I told them Nick seems to be enjoying it, though."
Spring practice starts next month for Milano and his teammates as they'll be looking to compete for a state championship once again. They've been close and even got to the championship game with Nick Patti at QB, but they have yet to reach that peak. Could this be their year?
"I think we're a contender," he said. "We've won everything but state," he added.
"Our defense is going to be really good," he said. "We've got some good LBs, the D-line is looking good, and our new QB is stepping up. We'll have a good team."
So, what does Matt Milano (6'1, 197, 4.64) bring to the gridiron?
"I'm a good tackler and I know my assignment," he said. "One thing I want to do is get some more coverage in my highlight film. I want to add some one-on-one stuff and improve on that as well."
