While some Volunteer fans are concerned about the quarterback situation at the University of Tennessee, apparently wide receiver prospects aren’t.
Lane Kiffin picked up his second pledge from a wide out here Friday, filling a big need with a big physical wide receiver in Illinois Matt Milton.
Milton’s high school head coach Scott Battass confirmed from Rocky Top that Milton was indeed a Vol.
“Matt truly feels at home here,” Battass told InsideTennessee.com. “He brings something to the table that Tennessee doesn’t have right now. A big physical wide out that they want to make an immediate impact here.”
Battass accompanied Milton and his mother to Knoxville Friday, and he was also impressed with his visit.
“I have always been intrigued by the SEC,” Battass said. “The stadium here is a special place; we feel that this is the best fit for him.”
When asked what Milton’s mom felt about Tennessee, you could hear her in the background giving her approval.
“I love it a lot here,” Milton’s mom yelled. “She loves it as you can hear. She was concerned about everything. Academics, location, the coaches, everything met her approval.”
According to everyone, Tennessee was just the right fit.
“Tennessee has the complete package,” Battass said. “Matt fits into the program really well. This is definitely the perfect place for him.”
Milton is a four star prospect by Scout.com and is listed at 6-foot-6, and 208-pounds. He is rated as the No. 34 wide receiver in the country. This is the second four star wide out the Vols have picked up this week. Markeith Ambles committed earlier in the week.
