Boston College nabs Dr. Phillips product

Defensive back Matt Milano (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips), a Long Island, N.Y. native, has become the latest 2013 commitment for Boston College, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Air Force, Arizona, Bowling Green, Miami-OH and Stony Brook also offered the 6-foot, 194-pound defender. Milano either visited or was also recruited by Boise State, Michigan State, Northwestern, Rutgers, South Florida and Central Florida.

"When we went and visited all the schools, that was just the one that stuck out the most to me and I thought that I fit there,” Milano, who still has family in the Northeast, said. “We came home, talked about it with my family, friends and basically, it was me that made the decision, but it was the school that was right for me.”

Milano was one of Dr. Phillips' most productive defenders last fall when he recorded a team-high 123 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, three sacks, one interception and three forced fumbles.

The rising senior also shined on the Nike Combine circuit this spring when he posted an electronically-timed 4.64 40-yard dash, 4.25 20-yard shuttle, 34.3-inch vertical and 104.19 SPARQ.

Milano is the 13th player on board in Boston College's 2013 class. He's BC's first commitment from the South during this recruiting cycle.
