On Sunday afternoon, the University of Miami hosted their annual “U-Day.” U-Day is a great chance for kids from other parts of the country, as well as many local kids, to come down to Miami and take a tour of the school while enjoing some food.
One of the biggest out-of-state targets that made the trip down to Miami was Bar Milo. I was able to catch up with Milo to talk about his experience on Sunday at “U-Day.” Milo is a big time offensive line prospect and is rated as a four star recruit. The 6’5-277 offensive tackle from Chaminade High School in California is a main target for the Canes. If the high school sounds familiar to some Canes’ fans, its because Brad Kaaya also went to Chaminade where he was teammates with Milo. Milo seems to have greatly enjoyed his visit.
When asked about how the visit went overall Bar stated that “Everything was great. It was a fantastic visit.”
Milo had the chance to bond with the coaching staff and gave some insight as to which coaches he spent time with. Milo said he got to spend some time with coach Scott who he already knew because he is the main recruiter for his area. Milo also talked about getting to meet Coach Coley, who was Brad Kaaya’s main recruiter and Brennan Carroll.
In addition to the other coaches, Milo was able to meet with offensive line Coach Art Kehoe and had high praise for him.
In reference to his time with Kehoe, Milo said “That was great, he’s my position coach” Milo added that Kehoe is “an amazing coach with great history and is a great Person. You can really tell that you would enjoy being coached by him.”
In addition to being high school teammates with Brad Kaaya, Milo also created a close bond with Canes’ offensive line commit, Hayden Mahoney who played with Milo on team USA this year.
Milo said that he “Finally got to see my old high school teammate Brad Kaaya. (Kaaya) tells me “when are you going to commit?” and I just say whenever my mom lets me… Brad always tells me how great it is, before I even came here he was telling me how I have to commit.”
While Milo seems to love Miami, it is clear that his parents aren’t yet sold on him going to a school so far away from home.
Milo also spoke of Hayden Mahoney, who helped make it possible for Milo to visit this weekend and said “Hayden is obviously trying to recruit me as a USA teammate.”
After hesitating to name a leader between ASU and Miami, Milo said that “Miami is probably at the top right now after this visit, being that I haven’t seen ASU.”
Milo says that he has no more unofficial visits planned but will likely take official visits to ASU, Nebraska, Washington and Miami.
