It's starting to hit crunch time in recruiting, and that always means more and more new prospects pop up in the Peach State. And Oakwood (Ga.) West Hall tight end Martrez Milner is the newest making news.
"Martrez is a very good sized kid," said West Hall offensive coordinator Paul Alexander. "He's a legit 6-foot-5 and weighs about 235 pounds. You'd think for a kid that big he'd be slow, but he's not. He can really move his feet well.
"I think (West Hall head) coach (Tim) Marchman has timed him at around 4.5 in the 40."
Alexander said Milner is also a natural on the football field.
"He has that natural instinct that all great players have," Alexander said. "He played his first three years at tight end for us, but then we moved him out to receiver because he was so good. He picked it up without any problems.
"Heck, we even moved him to defense this year, too. He played a standup six technique over the tight end. He just killed people over there. I would suspect that he gets a lot of looks over there too."
And lots of looks is what Milner is getting. Alexander wasn't sure which schools had exactly offered him, but other sources have indicated that he has offers from Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina and Minnesota.
And now it's looking like the in-state teams are starting to take notice, too.
"Georgia requested film not to long ago, and coach Marchman said UGA is really interested in him now," Alexander said.
