Not so fast: After reports of Tennessee commitment, Joe Milton says he hasn't made final decision
Joe Milton to Tennesee isn’t official just yet.
On Monday, it was reported that the Michigan transfer quarterback was heading to Rocky Top to continue his college football career. The Orlando native, however, says he hasn’t made his final decision.
“Nah,” Milton told the Orlando Sentinel’s Chris Hays. “I haven’t decided yet. … probably Saturday night.”
Milton did say he’s down to Tennessee or Washington State.
Milton signed with Michigan after being selected as an Elite 11 Finalist out of Olympia High School in Florida. On the 247Sports Composite, Milton was rated as a 4-star prospect and the No. 9 pro-style passer in the country in the class of 2018.
Milton played in six games (starting five) last season for Michigan, going 80-of-141 passing for 1,077 yards with 4 touchdowns and 4 interceptions for the Wolverines. In February, Milton made the decision to enter the transfer portal.
Michigan did not redshirt Milton despite him playing in only four games during the 2018 and ’19 seasons. Though he was considered a true junior this season, the Sentinel article states he will have up to three years of eligibility remaining.
