Strong Adds Wide Receiver Transfer From Tennessee

We need to stop getting really good football news hours before tip-off, because it doesn't seem to be working out well for the basketball team.

Matt Milton, a 6-foot-5 sophomore wide receiver, confirmed on Tuesday that he would be transferring from Tennessee to Louisville. The former four-star recruit from just outside of St. Louis reportedly wanted to be closer to home because of a family illness.

Milton played in six games this season and had one catch for 12 yards. He was behind several receivers on the Volunteer depth chart, most notably stars Da'Rick Rogers and Mychal Rivera. Milton played in four games as a freshman in 2010.

Here he is as a senior in high school:

That size will be a huge asset for him at a position where U of L figures to already be fairly deep when he becomes eligible in 2013.
