Shannon Scott, point guard, signed with Ohio State

Julian Royal, forward, signed with Georgia Tech

Dai-jon Parker, guard, signed with Vanderbilt

Jordan Loyd, guard, signed with Furman

Shaquille Johnson, small forward, committed to Auburn

Evan Nolte, small forward, committed to Virginia

Milton has made three straight appearances in the Class AAAAA championship game, winning in 2010.

Man I am sick and tired of folks including Miller Grove high in the conversations and accusation of recruiting and cheating….those other schools may do it, but ALL and I repeat ALL of those kids have been at MGHS since 9th grade, no transfers….none! H. Brooks came to the school in 10th grade moving in from New Orleans. So PLEASE haters get your facts straight…..
