Milo Holds a BCS Level Offer
Jarard Milo, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete from Northwest High in Olathe, Kan., was an impressive looking specimen at the Scout.com Combine that was held in Kansas City. He ran an impressive 4.59 forty-yard dash time despite the fact he tweaked his hamstring in the midst of his attempt. Now that he has healed from his injury he was set to attend a session of Kansas State camp when Scout.com caught up with him for an interview. "Things have been going good. I am just getting set for this Kansas State camp," Milo said. "I am very excited. This is actually my first one (camp) for the summer." Milo recently added his first offer when he was surprised by a school from the Big 10. There are a few other top programs keeping close tabs on him. "I have an offer from Minnesota so far," Milo informed. "The other schools that are recruiting me are Kansas State, Kansas, Wisconsin, and LSU have all been talking to me." "The offer from Minnesota took a little bit of the pressure off. It felt really good to get offered by a school like that. It came out of nowhere, so it was a big surprise for me. I had not heard that much from Minnesota, but it felt really good." Milo could either line up at safety or wide receiver on the next level, and he is receiving some differing opinions from the schools that are currently tracking him. "Minnesota is looking at me as more of a safety," Milo informed. "Kansas State is looking at me at wide receiver and at safety. They told me that I could rotate between the positions. It is just kind of split up between the two positions." "As of right now I would prefer safety, because I just recently started playing some wide receiver. I have always played running back. This year I am going to switch between running back and wide receiver, so I am going to see how receiver goes." "At safety I would say my biggest strength is reading coverage. Everybody know I am going to be putting myself in the right situation as far as coverages are concerned. On the opposite side of the ball I would have to say my biggest strength is production." Milo said of his strengths on the field.
