A top running back in the Class of 2020, Kendall Milton has naturally garnered interest from just about every program in the country. But he has recently revealed a nugget of information that Ohio State fans will find particularly interesting.
On Wednesday afternoon, Milton revealed that he would be making a visit to Ohio State on Friday, April 5. He directed the message at Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day and running backs coach Tony Alford.
Per 247Sports, Milton is a five-star recruit and the No. 15 overall prospect in the country. He is also considered the No. 2 running back on the board and the No. 4 prospect from the state of California.

The Buckeyes have already offered Milton a scholarship, but if they can manage to get a commitment out of him from the visit they would get an immediate leg up in the Class of 2020.
Ohio State has already secured a commitment from No. 4 overall prospect Paris Johnson Jr., giving the Buckeyes the only top-five recruit from the class to make a commitment so far.
Ryan Day’s side is already rated the No. 5 overall recruiting class in the country and the No. 1 in the Big Ten Conference.
Landing Milton would give the Buckeyes two five-star recruits this early in the process, potentially vaulting them even higher with so much time to get more commits.
