Kansas DB Favors Two

Kansas DB Favors Two

One of the better sleepers in the state of Kansas is still sitting on one scholarship offer. Jarard Milo of Olathe-Northwest has had a tough go of it the past two seasons, and part of that is why he remains fairly unknown among college recruiters.

Jarard Milo had to sit out the 2006 season while an ankle injury limited him to missing a chunk of his senior year. With that said, he is receiving interest from four programs, two each from the Big Ten and Big 12.

"My only offer is the one from Minnesota," Milo said. "I'm also getting interest from Kansas State, Kansas and Wisconsin. Minnesota and K-State are my two favorites."

"I know Minnesota liked me enough to offer me, even though they only went off my sophomore season. I didn't play last year, but they have a lot of faith in me as a player. I like their coaching staff. They like my size and think I have a good chance to play safety for them. They like how I see the field."

Milo has a family connection to K-State.

"I like the staff at K-State, and Coach Prince is a good guy, " he said. "Coach Wallace is my main recruiter there, and I like him. Everything is good with them. I went there for Homecoming this year and had a good time. I'm used to being there though, because my brother went to school there."

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder is hoping to make up for lost time, and is in the process of trying to arrange a few official visits.

"My ankle limited me to only playing in four games this season," Milo said. "I know I made some plays at safety and also had around 600 receiving yards."

"When I do get ready to decide, the number one thing will be my education, because it's important to my family, and I want to graduate. Next will be the coaching staff. And the third thing will be the school, facilities, etc."

Milo reports a 3.5 GPA and will take the ACT in December. He bench presses 265 and squats 435.
