  Florida State fans can get their first look at several newcomers including former UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton when the Seminoles host their spring game on April 10. FSU is one of the first schools to announce a spring game. The campus closed last season due growing concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, cutting short coach Mike Norvell's first spring football camp after three practices. The virus also forced the cancellation of the annual Garnet and Gold Game. Norvell and his coaching staff hope to lead a full slate of spring workouts after completing a tumultuous 2020 season that saw FSU finish with a 3-6 record. Milton is among several high-profile additions to the roster after transferring to the school in December. - Orlando Sentinel

  New FSU quarterback McKenzie Milton has been cleared by his surgeon at the Mayo Clinic to play full-contact football immediately, his mother confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel. Milton recently led the UCF scout team while spending the past two years recovering from a catastrophic knee injury. Shortly after transferring to Florida State in December, he said he was looking forward to getting clearance from his surgical team at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota in early January. - Orlando Sentinel

  Former UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton said Friday he's not putting any pressure on himself to come in and be the man after transferring to Florida State. Milton, in his first media availability since transferring to the Tallahassee school, answered a multitude of questions and said he will ease into his new surroundings. He hopes to be ready and on the field when the Seminoles face Notre Dame on Sept. 5. "I don't necessarily feel pressure. The only pressure I feel right now is to learn this playbook and just know my job inside and out," said Milton, a redshirt senior. "I feel like when I get to that point, that alleviates all pressure just because I know exactly what I'm doing, what's expected of me. "I'm just learning everyone's names and knowing everybody in this building. That's the only pressure I feel right now. Playing-wise, I feel comfortable to go do what I want to do...When I do something like that [learn about everyone], the rest will take care of itself." - Orlando Sentinel

  Quarterback McKenzie Milton won't be going long in his transfer from the University of Central Florida, just 260 miles up the state to Florida State, it was announced today. "It's a great opportunity to play at the biggest level on one of the most historic teams in college football," Milton told ESPN today. Milton said last week that he would transfer from UCF, where he had started as a freshman out of Mililani High. He had an array of choices after entering the NCAA transfer portal before settling on the Seminoles. Milton, who finished eighth in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2017, suffered severe knee, ligament and nerve injuries in the final regular-season game of 2018 that nearly resulted in the loss of his right leg. - Honolulu Star Advertiser

  Milton's name dots the UCF record books, with the redshirt senior ranked fourth in school history with 8,683 passing yards and 72 passing touchdowns. He's third all-time in total offense with 9,761 yards. Heupel said he has been inspired by Milton's perseverance. "You look back to where it started - the injury on the field - at that point you were hoping he would be able to keep his leg," Heupel added. "It's a story of faith. It's a story of the human spirit. I think it's remarkable where it started and where it is currently. "The best part of that story is that it's not done yet. The complete story hasn't been written. The next hurdle was to be able to walk normally and to live a normal life. Now you're talking about him getting back on the field and competing at the highest level."

Milton is graciously handing the Knights over Gabriel, emphasizing competing against each other would not be fair to either quarterback. "It's DG's team now - I feel like the torch is passed. He's gonna take it to a whole 'nother level," he said. Milton has one year of eligibility left, including the one-time waiver by the NCAA this season for playing during the COVID-19 pandemic. His decision immediately sparked speculation about his future potential destination, with Miami and Florida both linked to the former Heisman candidate. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton has spent two years working to achieve what seemed to be an impossible dream. Despite numerous surgeries and a grueling recovery marked by encouraging wins and devastating setbacks, he was determined to play competitive football again. To realize that dream, Milton announced he is leaving the UCF program and transferring in an effort to play competitive football elsewhere. The Hawaiian quarterback who led earned the affection of UCF fans while leading the team to a Peach Bowl win over Auburn, opted not to compete with his best friend, prolific Knights starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel, as he pushes to play his final year of college football. - Orlando Sentinel

  His first surgery started less than three hours after the injury, one of the many factors that opened the door to his recovery. Milton endured multiple surgeries and one doctor told him 50% of people with the same injury need to have the leg amputated because the artery is too damaged or severed and it's too late to restore blood flow. Milton used a wheelchair or crutches for the first five months following surgery and it wasn't until earlier this year that doctors allowed him to ditch a restrictive brace for a less bulky one that allowed him to increase his physical activities. He received clearance from his doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota to return to practice in August and recently began working out with the team in full pads. He also took over as quarterback for the scout team.

"He's a pretty good one," coach Josh Heupel said when asked how good of a scout-team quarterback Milton has been for the Knights. "It's great to see him out there and playing with bodies around him and doing some of the things he's accustomed to doing before the injury." ESPN's College GameDay Saturday featured Milton, sharing his grueling recovery process. "I believe I'll play football again," Milton told ESPN Tom Rinaldi, reiterating the faith he has shared throughout his recovery process. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton took another step in his recovery when he suited up in shoulder pads and participated in a practice Tuesday. While it's still unclear when Milton might be ready to take a snap during a football game, his perseverance and positive attitude throughout the multi-year recovery process has been an inspiration for his teammates and coaches. "McKenzie Milton is like a bright sun on a gloomy day," UCF co-offensive coordinator Alex Golesh said. "KZ is literally the heartbeat of our offense." Milton has spent the past 22 months recovering from a horrific knee injury he suffered during the Knights' 2018 regular-season finale against USF at Raymond James Stadium. He was transported to Tampa General Hospital, where he underwent surgery to repair damaged nerves and restore blood flow to his lower right leg. The injury nearly forced doctors to amputate his leg.

He went through multiple surgeries and countless hours of rehabilitation before getting clearance from his doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota in August to return to practice. "When he started practicing with us, you look over and he's got a smile and balls are zipping everywhere," added Golesh, who joined the UCF coaching staff in December following a stint at Iowa State. "There's a sense of excitement among everyone on the offense. I know for me, seeing him play from afar and now being around him, to see him out there is incredible and humbling in ways because a lot of people said he shouldn't be out there or couldn't be out there. "It's a credit to him on his perseverance and drive to be able to get back." - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton has made tremendous strides as he continues his rehabilitation from a catastrophic knee injury that nearly cost him his leg in 2018. While most people associated with the Knights football program believe Milton's return to the football field is inevitable, don't expect it to happen soon. UCF coach Josh Heupel ruled out Milton for the season opener against Georgia Tech on Saturday in Atlanta and the foreseeable future. "McKenzie won't play in this football game here and realistically the first couple weeks of the season," Heupel said. "He's continuing to do more and more out at practice. His heath is continuing to get better. He's throwing with our guys and moving around the pocket and doing those types of things. I think he's getting more and more comfortable."

Milton's spent the past 22 months recovering from a horrific knee injury he suffered during the Knights' 2018 regular-season finale against USF at Raymond James Stadium. He had emergency surgery at Tampa General Hospital to repair damaged nerves and restore blood flow to his lower right leg. The injury nearly forced doctors to amputate his leg. He was in a wheelchair or on crutches for the first five months following the surgery and it wasn't until earlier this year that doctors cleared him to ditch a restrictive brace for a less bulky one that allowed him to increase his physical activities. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton won't be ready for the Knights' opener against Georgia Tech, but the veteran signal-caller continues to take major strides in his recovery from a devastating knee injury he suffered in 2018. Coach Josh Heupel confirmed Milton won't be available for the team's road contest against the Yellow Jackets on Saturday, Sept. 19, while giving an update on the progress of his quarterback.

"I don't think Week 1 he'll be ready to go," Heupel said during a videoconference Tuesday. "It's remarkable what he's done. You look at from the initial injury, where he's able to keep his leg, to being able to live a normal life to now - becoming an elite athlete. The guy continues to defy the odds and push through any obstacle that comes in front of him and there's been a bunch." Milton spent 21 months recovering from a horrific knee injury he suffered during the Knights' 2018 regular-season finale against USF at Raymond James Stadium. He had emergency surgery at Tampa General Hospital to repair damaged nerves and restore blood flow to his lower right leg. The injury nearly forced doctors to amputate his leg. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton and his mother posted positive messages about his progress following a devastating knee injury, writing he started a "new phase of recovery" following a key visit to the Mayo Clinic. "Knight Fans thank you for praying and encouraging KZ all the way back to great health! McKenzie has experienced healing and miracles that have surprised so many," Teresa Milton posted on Twitter early Wednesday morning. "His evaluation went very well. He will start a new phase of recovery! And all I can say is God Is Good!"

The injury nearly forced doctors to amputate his leg. His mother shared three videos on her Instagram account of the quarterback running, doing lateral slides and putting full weight on his knee. It appeared he had no limitations and had regained much of his range of motion. - Orlando Sentinel

  UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton tested negative for coronavirus after a health scare, according to an ESPN report that examined the challenges colleges will face testing athletes. Milton, who has remained in Orlando and has worked out on the UCF campus while going through rehabilitation for a catastrophic knee injury, told ESPN he got a sore throat and a fever about a week ago. He stayed home instead of doing his daily workouts and went to UCF's drive-up COVID-19 testing site. The next day, Milton learned his test was negative and he resumed workouts after his fever and other symptoms subsided. "I would have felt bad if I was around people and was sick and the possibility of our physical therapy having to get quarantined because of me," Milton told ESPN.

UCF is among the schools expected to resume workouts after the NCAA cleared schools to conduct voluntary workouts when the activities are allowed under local and state rules. Milton said the Knights who are recovering from injuries and were exempt from stay-at-home orders get their temperatures checked when they arrive on campus daily, wear masks during weight room workouts, and maintain distance between each other. In addition, all equipment is sanitized after it is used. He also has worked out on outdoor fields with current and former UCF football players, wowing fans by dropping deep passes to receivers. None of the players were wearing masks in the videos shared on social media. - Orlando Sentinel

  Injured UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton said Thursday there is a 50-50 chance he'll be able to play football again during the 2020 season. With his teammates scattered across the country in their homes waiting out the coronavirus outbreak, Milton is still in Orlando rehabbing his knee with the UCF athletic training staff. His progress captured has been highlighted during social media posts, including time he has spent wearing a mask and working in the team's weight room with teammate Brandon Moore, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered during the Knights' 2019 season opener.

"It's still my goal and I go to see my surgeon in June and I'll know a lot at that point," Milton said of his push to play during the upcoming football season. "The reason I set that goal is because I want to approach my rehab every day with the idea that I would be ready to go for fall camp and be a go for North Carolina in our first game. If I'm not approaching it that way then I feel like I would be missing days in therapy and not working as hard as I can. "That's why I set that goal and I hope to reach that and if I don't, it is what it is and I'll just keep knocking block-by-block." - Orlando Sentinel

  McKenzie Milton continues rehabbing the career-threatening knee injury he suffered in the regular-season finale in 2018. Milton's progress is stunning considering the severity of the injury. He even participated in spring practice - albeit on a limited basis - before workouts were halted by the coronavirus outbreak. A return date is still up in the air. - Orlando Sentinel

  McKenzie Milton was tired, fatigued and, given the import of the occasion, maybe, a little jubilant, too. For the first time in the 15 months since the University of Central Florida quarterback was carted off the field on a stretcher in the final regular-season game of the Knights' 2018 football season, Milton was jogging again. "It was hard, I got tired fast. I definitely hadn't felt that way in a long time, so it was good," he said about a modest jog at the Knights' athletic training facility in Orlando two weeks ago. For the Mililani High graduate, it is a journey best measured not in how far he went that day but in how far he has come since his right leg was left painfully contorted by a hit from a University of South Florida defender.

Back then, as they rushed him to a hospital, there were concerns whether the player who had led the Knights to a 23-game winning streak would even be able to keep his right leg from amputation, much less jog unaided again after suffering torn ligaments, a dislocated knee, a severed artery and nerve damage. But there he was Wednesday on Twitter in a brace, planting on the surgically repaired right leg and flinging passes on the practice field to a distant receiver again, an exercise once routine but now celebrated as a hard-earned milestone. "It felt good, the muscle memory was coming back fairly quickly," Milton said. It was the lower half of the body that took some time to get reacquainted. - Honolulu Advertiser

  Quarterback McKenzie Milton, his surgically repaired right leg encased in a brace, has returned to the practice field for the University of Central Florida football team, firing passes at the start of spring practice. Video of the Mililani High graduate planting the right leg and throwing passes in Orlando, Fla., was posted on the team's Twitter account with the notation, "Progress every day. #10hana," and quickly drew more than 400 comments Wednesday.

Milton was a two-time American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year when he suffered a gruesome injury to his right knee after being hit in the Nov. 23, 2018 regular-season finale against South Florida. Milton tore his lateral collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament, dislocated his knee, severed an artery and suffered nerve damage. Initially, there was concern the leg might have to be amputated. Milton underwent several surgeries and months of physical therapy. He continues the rehabilitation process, the school said. - Honolulu Advertiser

  Whether UCF can keep it up without Milton's magical playmaking is one of the most intriguing stories of the upcoming season. But make no mistake, the guy everyone around Central Florida football calls KZ will contribute to the Knights' next chapter. "He's going to take this year as a coaching role. Absolutely," second-year UCF coach Josh Heupel said. "And so working fundamentals with our quarterbacks during the offseason. Kind of being in charge of that. Approaching it as a coach in his preparation. He'll be a part of game planning. I fully expect him to bring ideas to the table, too. He's not going to sit there and not do that. He did that at the end of last year in the conference championship and bowl games. He's going to be a critical part."

Milton has made huge strides since a low, but legal hit by USF defensive back Mazzi Wilkins the day after Thanksgiving sent him into emergency surgery to repair artery damage that could have cost him his leg. Milton got off crutches in April and now wears a thigh-to-calf black brace that supports his tibia while ligaments heal. "Maybe at first it was uncomfortable, but I'm used to it now. It's like a part of me," Milton said in June. - AP College football
