Ex-UCF QB McKenzie Milton who suffered one of the worst knee injuries ever commits to Florida State

This is one of the best signings in 2020. Former UCF QB McKenzie Milton who suffered on of the worst injuries in college football is back and has already found a new home.

Milton posted that he has committed to another Florida team. The former UCF gunslinger is headed to Tallahassee to play for the Seminoles.

On November 23, 2018, UCF played the last game of the regular season against in-state rival University of South Florida. Early in the second quarter, Milton pulled the ball on a belly option and ran right. He was tackled by two USF players with one player hitting him right below the knee. This caused Milton to dislocate his knee. He was carted off the field and then rushed to nearby Tampa General Hospital. Upon arrival, doctors found extensive damage to the arteries and nerves in his right knee. Emergency surgery was undertaken to restore arterial blood flow; this involved taking the saphenous vein out of his left leg and transferring the vessel to the right leg to restore blood flow to that limb. The surgery was successful. Two more surgeries followed over the course of several days. Milton was discharged from the hospital on November 30. Milton underwent reconstructive knee surgery in January 2019.

This could be one of the best stories in college football next year.
