Over the last three years, quarterback McKenzie Milton has experienced some of the highest peaks and lowest valleys of anyone in the college football world.
In 2018, Milton suffered a devastating knee injury against South Florida.
McKenzie Milton Transfers to Florida State
McKenzie Milton arrived at the UCF campus from Mililani High School in Hawaii and left a lasting impression on the Central Florida school. The Knights have since moved on to quarterback Dillon Gabriel.
Milton chose the ‘Noles because of their historical excellence, along with his relationship with FSU offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham.
The QB knew head coach Mike Norvell from his time coaching Memphis, and he will now be jumping from the American Athletic Conference to the ACC with his final year of eligibility.
FSU hasn’t received consistent QB play since Jameis Winston’s Heisman season, so the Seminoles will take another strong option. It will go a long way into helping the team reach the College Football Playoff and hopefully to compete for a national championship in the near future.
McKenzie Milton Highlights
McKenzie Milton has been exceptional in the past, so the hope is that his repaired ligaments will hold up to get through the season unscathed.
In 33 games, he has totaled 72 passing touchdowns and an additional 20 rushing scores. His 8,683 passing yards show he can be trusted to throw the ball when needed, and he had serious NFL aspirations before the leg injury.
A long time has passed since the fateful USF game, but McKenzie Milton will finally step onto the field again during FSU’s spring practices.
College football fans around the country will be rooting for him to succeed.
