5-star re­cruit Mil­ton suf­fers in­jury dur­ing Fri­day’s game

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports - BY AN­THONY GALAVIZ [email protected]­nobee.com

Buchanan High foot­ball star Kendall Mil­ton suf­fered an in­jury that kept him side­lined the ma­jor­ity of the Bears’ game against Bullard on Fri­day night.

Mil­ton, a five-star re­cruit who is a Ge­or­gia com­mit, sus­tained the in­jury af­ter a 20-yard run early in the first quar­ter.

He got up slow, went to the side­line af­ter the play and never reen­tered.

Buchanan went on to beat Bullard 28-14.

Af­ter­ward, Bears coach Matt Gior­dano con­firmed that Mil­ton suf­fered a quad in­jury and his sta­tus is con­sid­ered day-to-day.

“We’re just go­ing to take it one day at a time with him,” Gior­dano said. “He’s very dis­ap­pointed es­pe­cially on se­nior night that hap­pened. But you know what? He was ex­cited (for his team­mates) and is a good team­mate.”

At the start of the sec­ond half, Mil­ton re­mained in uni­form, though on the side­line, and wore a red wrap around his right thigh.

Mil­ton is one the most highly re­cruited play­ers in Cen­tral Sec­tion his­tory, re­ceiv­ing of­fers from most of the nation’s top col­lege pro­grams.

He con­sid­ered his top choices to be Alabama, Ge­or­gia, Louisiana State and Ohio State.
