Milline hoping for offer

Baldwin cornerback Roshaun Milline lined up against Peach County's wide receiver Demarcus Robinson all night when the two teams faced each other Friday to determine the conference champion.

Not many balls were thrown their way as Peach County rallied back to win 17-14, but the matchup was interesting to see: a receiver with a Georgia offer competing directly against a cornerback looking for one.

A 2012 prospect, Milline has good speed and was only beat outright on one throw deep that Robinson ended up dropping. The low number of tosses his way didn't allow for the senior defensive back to show everything he had, but lack of exposure in the secondary isn't anything new to Milline.

The 6-foot, 185-pound athlete has moonlighted at many positions throughout his high school career, playing wherever his team needed him. In June, Milline caught the eye of the UGA coaching staff at Mark Richt 7-on-7, earning him an invite to Dawg night where he said he had the opportunity to start to develop a relationship with secondary coach Scott Lakatos.

"He was just encouraging me to be a leader on and off the field. He was also giving me tips on becoming a better corner and was teaching me different techniques and footwork drills," Milline said. "Footwork is key."

After a season of working on experience and polishing up his skills as a defensive back, Milline said he has only been in limited contact with Lakatos recently but that he is still working to get his offer from the Dawgs.

"I heard from Georgia a couple of weeks ago, but I have to give coach a call to let him know Georgia is still No. 1 on my mind," Milline said.

Milline said he plans on taking his officials but hasn't been able to take many, but he wants to get to Athens to see the Dawgs play if he can. While he has a few other offers from smaller programs, there is only one big time program that he is waiting on.

"I've always liked Georgia, ever since David Pollack has been there. I mean, it is close to my home, my family is in Georgia. That gives them the opportunity to see me," Milline said. "And I love their facilities."

So what if Milline were to free up to get on campus and received the offer he's been waiting to hear?

"Oh, I would most definitely take it."
