Boston College commit Matt Milano (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips) said the dismissal of former Boston College head coach Frank Spaziani was not shocking to him.
The three-star defensive back prospect said while he liked the coach and wanted to play for him, he understands that winning is important.
“As you know with any situation if you don’t get the job done then tough decisions have to be made,” Milano explained. “I think he’s a good guy and I wish things could have worked out. Right now there isn’t much I can do about it.”
Milano says he’ll remain committed to Boston College for now but is planning on taking an official visit to Arizona after the season. Currently Dr. Phillips is in the third round of the Florida Class 8A playoffs.
“Arizona actually offered me before Boston College and they have been recruiting me from the very beginning,” Milano said. “So I’m going to take an official there with my brother.”
Milano said that Kentucky, which hired FSU defensive coordinator Mark Stoops today, and Duke are also in the mix.
“Right now I’m focused on trying to win a state championship,” Milano added. “After that I’ll see what happens with the BC job and how it’s going to affect me.”
