After picking between some very impressive programs, we now have a clearer idea of what led him to pick Georgia.Speaking to DawgNation, Milton’s father, Chris Milton, said that the school’s dedication to  the family was a big factor.“They took the time and effort to let us know about that they did the homework about the family… And it has been consistent with how they’ve acted since I  first met (RBs coach) Dell McGee on Buchanan’s (High School) campus.”Chris also said that Georgia came across as a school that could serve as a “stepping stone” to “somewhere else” – a pretty clear nod to his son’s NFL potential.“There are some programs in the country you can go to and you can go, ‘You know I play college football,’ ” Chris Milton said. “There are other programs where you can say ‘You know, I play D-1 ball,’ and then there is a handful of programs that you go to where you go to and you can say, ‘This is a stepping stone because you are going somewhere else,’ and this is one of those programs.”Georgia’s success in getting players—especially running backs—into the NFL is well-documented. Todd Gurley, Nick Chubb, and Sony Michel are just a few of the Georgia star backs to parlay their college success into NFL stardom. Milton is the No. 22 overall prospect in the country in the Class of 2020. Per 247Sports, he is the No. 4 running back in the nation, and the No. 3 prospect from the state of California.Over the past two years of high school, Milton has rushed for over 2,800 yards and 50 touchdowns.Will Kendall Milton be the next Georgia running back to become an NFL star?[DawgNation]last_img
