Hamilton corner Ryan Milus called to fill us in on his first offer and he was excited.
"I talked to Coach Belles and we went back to his office and called Coach Rasmussen (from Washington State) and he offered me a scholarship," Milus tells us in an exclusive interview.
His thoughts. "I am very excited. I have been getting letters from them but waiting for this first offer." He adds, "This kind of surprised me and popped up on me."
Milus (5-10 155) grew up rooting for both the Cougars and the Washington Huskies as he grew up in the state of Washington. "I was born there and lived up there until I was eight or nine."
Other schools that have been showing interest include Stanford, Arizona State, Colorado, UNLV and Northwestern. ASU and UNLV both invited him to their junior days. He says he plans on attending ASU's and feels the Devils have some interest in him. "ASU may be close to offering, They said I need to gain some weight and they will come back in the spring and re-evaluate."
He was unable to visit UNLV because he was taking his SAT the same weekend. Stanford is another possibility for a junior day visit for Milus.
When choosing a school, Milus says he will take into consideration, "The program, the academics. They are a big part. The campus but not the location. It is not a big deal, I wouldn't mind playing anywhere."
What Ryan lacks in size, he makes up for in speed. He clocked an electronic 10.85 at the 5A state track meet last year, where he finished fourth. It is no wonder the he claims his strengths as his "speed and quickness".
Milus was named 1st team all region as a junior after recording 53 tackles and 5 INTs. Check him out here wearing #1:
