Former Tennessee QB Joe Milton explains his unique reason for signing with Michigan out of high school

New England Patriots rookie quarterback Joe Milton spent the first three years of his collegiate career at Michigan before transferring to Tennessee ahead of the 2021 season.

Milton, a Florida native, signed with Michigan after high school and chose the Wolverines over the Georgia Bulldogs.

“I went to church that Sunday in red and white,” Milton said in 2019. “I was thinking heavily about Georgia. But as I was there praying, the school that stood out was Michigan.”

On Tuesday at Patriots minicamp, Milton told reporters that one of the main reasons he went to Michigan was because he had never played in cold weather in Florida. And he knew that if he made it to the NFL, there would be a decent chance he would be playing in cold weather.
