Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. The play today is a chat with 5-star RB commit Kendall Milton. He was also at the big Notre Dame win last Saturday night.
There was a moment in Saturday’s night clash with Notre Dame that meant something to the future of the Georgia football program.
The Bulldogs were trying to get their paws around the Irish on the field, but there was another scene worth remembering up at the top of that $65 million West End Zone expansion.
The visual offered up three key future Bulldogs looking down and toward their futures as Bulldogs.
Kendall Milton. Tate Ratledge. Joshua Braun.
Milton was flush to the left. Those three were looking down. Laughing. Talking. Watching.

“Tate and I were just talking about how crazy it is going to be being on that field and in that stadium where there will be 90,000 people in the stadium,” Kendall Milton said. “We were just kind of picturing it and enjoying.”
They were leaning on a railing at times. Just soaking all of it in.
“Every time I go on a visit they just give me more reasons on why I want to be a Bulldog,” Milton said. “So that’s really just all it is.”
It seems like every time Milton is in Athens, the program shows him something that one-ups his previous experience.
“It was crazy,” Milton said. “Just being in that whole stadium. The sold-out stadium. You know they had that whole red light thing when they blacked it out. So the atmosphere and how loud the fans were stood out. I think the fans were a huge contributor to the win.”
“You know Notre Dame took two timeouts early in the game on third and short situations because it was just so loud. So I would say the atmosphere there was just completely unbelievable.”
What was his favorite moment? It already has something to do with being a pledge to the “RBU” fraternity in Athens.
“I would say when my boy D’Andre Swift started getting off a little bit,” Milton said. “I like to see my brothers start to eat so that was my favorite part of the night. Just seeing him get off.”
Kendall Milton certainly enjoyed his time in Athens again. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
Kendall Milton updates his health for the rest of 2019
Milton committed to Georgia almost two months ago. As far as the recruiting weeks go, that feels like the senior RB standout from Buchanan High (Clovis, Calif.) chose the Bulldogs back during his sophomore year.
The nation’s No.4 RB prospect (and No. 23 overall recruit in the 247Sports Composite rankings) was also able to give DawgNation an update on his quad injury.
“I’m feeling very good,” he said. “Expecting to come back next week. This week is our bye week. So expecting to come back next week and have a great rest of the season.
His Bears are 3-2 this fall.
This was a different trip for Milton than his previous visits. He took a three-day unofficial visit back in April for G-Day and then he returned for his official visit in June.
