UCF star Milton rooting for former teammate Vedral, who 'could be starting anywhere in the country'

Back then, Milton hadn’t yet become a bona fide Heisman Trophy contender. He hadn’t yet ripped apart defenses to the tune of 10.2 yards per attempt, 37 touchdowns against nine interceptions and racked up more than 4,600 total yards of offense while leading the Knights to a 13-0 year and a Peach Bowl win over Auburn. He hadn’t yet undergone emergency surgery the night of Nov. 23, 2018, an ultimately successful operation that saved his right leg after a gruesome injury suffered against South Florida and marked the first step of a rehabilitation process that continues to this day.
