“USC is a storied program and academically they are one of the top institutions in the country,” Andrew Milek said to Sports360AZ.com shortly after making his commitment to USC. “I loved the campus and felt like I was at home. [It] had a great feel and frankly, the coaches were sincere, relatable and genuine.”
Milek had seen his recruiting take off in a state rich with talented big men. He noted the nice connection with the SC players he has gotten to know and says he felt it was a priority to play close to home in a Power Five conference.
“Absolutely,” Milek explained. “It’s a one hour flight and a six-hour drive from home. I grew up watching the Pac-12 and have always had aspirations to play at that level.”
Milek also likes the fact the Trojans play a challenging non-conference schedule littered with power programs from around the country.
Although he is expected to redshirt, the USC coaches conveyed to him that he is athletic enough to play and contribute early in his Trojan career.
“I look forward to working hard, being developed and having an opportunity to compete,” the massive 6-foot-5, 284-pounder said. sports360az.com
