For one Illinois High School prospect recruiting was exciting at first but now getting almost too much to handle.
Matt Milton was receiving 10 to 15 calls a day, he has decided to let his high school coach take over his interview request as the summer begins to come to an end.
“He is just a little overwhelmed,” said Coach Scott Battass. “He was taken out of context in a couple of articles and he just decided to let me handle it the rest of the way.”
It was reported earlier that he might be close to a decision, Coach Battass downplayed how close Milton was to making a final decision.
“I can’t say he is really close to making a decision. There are at least three schools still in it if not more,” Battass explained. “We are going to take a trip to Tennessee on July 24th, his mom is going for the first time, his dad and he will make their second trip. I will go with them to see the place and get a better feel for it.”
Where does Tennessee stand with Milton?
“He loves Tennessee,” Battass said. “He likes it a lot there. He is very comfortable with their coaching staff.”
According to Coach Battass they will probably release a statement following the trip to Knoxville, most likely narrowing his choices down to two or three schools.
“Tennessee will be in the mix to the end,” Battass said. “Illinois was one time the leader and he liked Iowa a lot at one point, those schools are not totally out of the picture at this point. It will definitely be a family decision.”
