"Texas kind got on me pretty early," Milton said. "They said they would take me, they were just awaiting a lot, a lot of things going on. Plus me being a grad student, my process is a little bit different from any others."

"Everything started getting official ago. I was settling on Texas for the last little bit."

Standing 5-foot-10 and weighing 195 pounds, the Manatee (Bradenton, FL) alum recorded 15 catches for 278 yards and three touchdowns last season.

He recorded one of those scores in his final game of the year, against none other than the Longhorns. 

Milton finished that game with two catches for 64 yards, with a long of 49 yards.

"I know a lot about Texas," Milton said. "Their history, their program, what they can bring to the table and their potential. I know a lot about coach Sark and his experiences, and what he can bring to the table, and the visions that he has. And also coach Marion, back when he was at Pitt... I was talking to him about going to Pitt, and he ended up getting the job at Texas and I love coach Marion. He's a great guy that has a lot of experience also, and who has a lot of wisdom and knowledge of the game, so that alone really took me."
