5-star visit: Everything to know about the vital Kendall Milton official

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. The storyline today is a preview of a big official visit from 5-star RB Kendall Milton

Chris Milton can recall a recent chat with his son Kendall. It was shared within the context of yet another official visit they are on this weekend.

For Team Milton, this one to Georgia is already underway.

It begs a natural question: For another 48-hour official which really gets going today, what else can Georgia do and show and put together that they haven’t already seen?

“Man, I don’t know,” Chris Milton said. “I honestly don’t know. My question to Kendall was ‘Bro, what else are you looking for?’ and he never really gave me an answer. This was from all the schools to be completely honest. It was like ‘what are you looking for’ and ‘what are you hoping to see’ with this.”

“His whole thing was ‘I don’t know’ and he was said he was just like ‘checking the fit’ and that’s why I think he has a whole different mindset of what he is looking for.”

Milton and his family boarded an early flight on Thursday to Georgia. The official visit for the nation’s No. 21 overall prospect (247Sports Composite) actually began when he reached Athens on Thursday evening.

The weekend offers another very good long look at UGA. The Bulldogs had a three-day unofficial in April. But all unofficials are not created equal. Certainly not those for Milton.

Anytime the 6-foot-2, 225-pound rising senior visits a school, it is something more than that. Anywhere. Unofficals have seemed like officials to him since his sophomore year. Maybe even longer.

Milton saw almost everything in Clarke County on that G-Day trek. Maybe even Watkinsville, too. It was his first visit to Athens.

That trip was filled-to-the-gills with everything from academics to dorms to practices to the weight room to the training table to locker rooms to indoor facility and everything about and around Sanford Stadium.

So what’s left to see? It might just be who sees it all this time.

How will this Georgia official be different?

There will be one thing about the visit that will be different. That is the numbers. Team Milton is coming in strong.

Milton has family in the Atlanta Metro area. His great uncle lives in Atlanta. They will be a part of this official. So will his grandparents.

“They live out here in California,” Chris Milton said. “They are actually flying out to see my uncle which is my dad’s brother. They will spend some time with him and then they will come to hang out at Georgia with us until Sunday. They will go back out to Atlanta to hang out a few more days and then come home.”

It marks the second official where the family roster extended beyond Kendall, his mother and his father. His older brother, KaLonn, made the LSU trip. He recently graduated from Fresno State after his own football career. Naturally.

The Miltons are a very athletic family.

“Brother went to LSU last week and after getting stuck in the airport at Dallas he was like ‘I’m cool’ and said you guys are on your own for the rest,” Chris Milton said.

Kendall Milton has another uncle that made quite a name for himself in football. Kevin Hardy, a former All-American and Butkus Award winner at Illions, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft.

He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars and played for Dallas and Cincinnati until his final season in 2004.
