SunState Football Player Comparison: Steven Wilks
Jr Season Stats: As a Jr Matt led the Dr Phillips defense with 123 Tackles 1 forced fumble 3 sacks 1 Interception 10 pass breakups and 17 tackles for a loss.
Skinny: Matt had a impressive Jr season and has a lot of buzz around him after a blowing up on the combine scene this spring and posting the nations #11 Sparq rating of 105.51.
Matt proved that he was more than a combine freak with a dominate performance this May in Dr Phillips spring game at Cocoa where he looked like a one man Army.
Milano currently holds an offer from Air Force with several likely to follow in the next two weeks after his road trip that will include Boston College, Connecticut and possibly Temple. BYU signed Dr Phillips 2012 LB Phillip Amone and have expressed great interest in potentially adding Milano to the 2013 class.
Bottom Line: Matt is without question one of Florida's top defensive players in the class of 2013. He is simply a football player that makes plays. He is one of the best physically built defenders in this class and 2013. Matt has great instincts and does not miss tackles. He plays very good in space and always arrives at the ball aggressive but under control. Matt has the ability to play Strong Safety on the next level but at this point his ceiling appears to be the highest at Outside Linebacker.
Final Thoughts: Dr Phillips is a division 1 football factory. The kids that come from this program are well coached and arrive on campus ready to compete from day one. Matt will without question carry on that proud tradition.
