2014 athlete Travon McMillian is ecstatic after receiving a scholarship offer from Virginia Tech recently. This offer joins an every growing list for the athletic sophomore.
"I went to their one-day camp and they offered me there," said McMillian, who is 6-foot-0 and 188-pounds. ""I really like the school especially the engineering program. I really like the coaches and Frank Beamer is great."
Virginia Tech is the ninth school to extend an offer to the athlete from Woodbridge (Va.) C. D. Hylton. Other schools that have offered McMillian include Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Illinois, N.C. State, Maryland, Boston College and Marshall.
Since it is obviously very early in his recruiting process, McMillian is taking a wait and see approach at this point.
"I don't have any favorites yet, I'm just enjoying the recruiting process right now," McMillian explained. "I talked to Cincinnati a few weeks ago and Wake Forest, but there's too many to count really."
McMillian has a few specific things he is looking for when evaluating each school.
"Academics are a big part of my decision and if I feel comfortable with the offense and if it fits with how I play football," he said. "If I'll be able to start early is also a factor and I kind of want to stay close to home. I want to play quarterback, but if it doesn't work out I can play wherever because I'm an athlete."
There is one offer that McMillian is keeping an eye out for.
"Ohio State is the offer I really want," McMillian said. "The tradition over there is amazing and they have great football. I've talked with the coaches on the phone and they say they're interested and want me to come to their camp. I'm not sure which camps I'll be going to next. I'll have to talk it over with my family."
