All five starters on Milton High’s basketball team have earned major-college scholarship offers in basketball. All five will return this year to defend the state championship in Georgia’s largest classification, along with contend for a mythical high school national championship.
Jordan Loyd was the last of the five when he was offered by Furman and Gardner-Webb this week.
The 6-foot-2 Loyd played mostly wingman but also saw time at point guard last year as a junior, averaging 8 points for the Eagles. He shot 75-percent from the foul line, 53-percent from the field, and 48-percent from the 3-point line. His assist to turnover ratio was 3 to 1.
“Furman and Gardner-Webb like his ability to play both wing and point guard, his ability to shoot, and his unselfish and heady play” Milton coach David Boyd said. “They also like that he comes from a program that wins championships.”
Milton point guard Shannon Scott has committed to Ohio State, while power forward Julian Royal and guard Dai-Jon Parker are considering multiple offers, including from both Georgia Tech and UGA. Rising junior swingman Evan Nolte has around a dozen early offers.
