McMillan earns another high ranking

POSTED: May 22, 2013 9:58 a.m.

Liberty County High School football player Raekwon McMillan has received another boost in the national rankings.
The 6-foot-2, 241-pound rising senior linebacker, already considered a five-star prospect by 247sport.com, received another five-star ranking from renowned recruiting and ranking system Rivals.com on Tuesday after spring evaluations.
McMillan is considered the No. 1 linebacker prospect in the nation in the class of 2014. During Liberty County’s recent two-week spring training, college coaches and scouts from Ole Miss, Georgia, Notre Dame, Alabama and other Football Bowl Subdivision schools flocked to the field to watch him in action.
Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia, Alabama and USC currently are McMillan’s top five, but his priority has shifted, according to a report on BuckeyeGrove.com.
McMillan reportedly told recruiting analyst Marc Givler that his focus is on the team and the upcoming season.
“I’ve just kind of set my recruiting to the side a little bit to give my teammates the time that they deserve during spring ball,” McMillan told reporters. “I know that if I am just dedicating myself to recruiting that we’re not going to have a great season.”  
McMillan likely will spend just as much time on the offensive side of the ball this season, filling in as a running back.
“Last year, I wasn’t full-time running back but this year I’m going to be full-time running back and linebacker,” McMillan said in the online article. “Playing both sides of the ball is going to be a real challenge this year.”
But McMillan is no stranger to the offense. Last year he had 49 carries for 316 yards and nine touchdowns.
McMillan will compete in the Rivals Five-Star Challenge on June 7-9 at Soldier Field in Chicago. He has said he plans to announce his college choice at the 2014 Under-Armour Game in January.
