Wide receiver DeChe' Milburn (5-11, 180, 4.6) from Sierra Vista (Ariz.) Buena is an outstanding two-way player and is getting looks for his talents on both sides of the ball.
Milburn was a first-team all-region performer for his work as both a wide receiver and safety. He made second-team all-state as a wide receiver after catching 30 passes for 800 yards and nine touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, Milburn had 61 tackles, six interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Milburn already has a top six list of schools and they are Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nebraska and North Carolina.
Arizona is recruiting Milburn as a wide receiver while the rest of Milburn's favorite schools like him as an athlete, meaning they aren't sure at this time if he will end up on offense or defense.
"I'm not sure where I want to play when I get to college," Milburn said. "I'm kind of leaning to towards defensive back because you can pretty much determine what to do on a play."
"On offense you are never sure if you will get the ball, but in defense you can always try to make the tackle."
Milburn is a hard worker who has already hit the camp circuit and has several camps planned in his future.
"I recently attended Chuck Schuman's Underclassmen Combine for juniors," Milburn said. "I won the camp's overall MVP."
Milburn will also be attending the NIKE Camp that will be held in Houston, Texas, in May.
Milburn has already attended Arizona's junior day and is planning on attending Oregon's and Nebraska's junior day as well, plus there is a good chance that he will be attending team camps at Oregon, Alabama, Nebraska and North Carolina.
What is Milburn looking for in a school?
"I want to major in journalism, so I am looking for school that has a strong English department," Milburn said. "Regarding football, I want to play for a program that is successful and that wins games. Also I would like to play somewhat close to home so my family can see me play."
Milburn is originally from Texas and he may return to the Lone Star State for his senior season. His father is in the military and he is coming up to retirement. Rivals.com will keep you informed if and when Milburn makes the move.
