A Florida Christian High School player, Milton is a smooth, fluid shortstop who may be the best defender in the class of 2014. His hands are soft and sure, his feet are quick and efficient, and he has plenty of arm strength from all different angles across the diamond. He has a line drive stroke from the right side using the whole field, and rises to the occasion against quality pitching. Milton is committed to Florida Atlantic University.
“With smooth actions at shortstop, Milton is one of the best high school infielders in the nation,” said Steve Bernhardt, Chairman of the Under Armour All-America Game Selection Committee and Executive VP of Baseball Operations at Baseball Factory. “He uses a line-drive stroke to spray balls all over the field. A gamer who performs best against quality pitching, we are excited to see what he will produce at the Under Armour All-America Game this summer.”
The Under Armour All-America Baseball Game is the culmination of a four-day baseball celebration, including a formal workout for Major League Baseball scouts and a homerun derby.
In the past five years, 118 of the 138 draft eligible players from the Under Armour All-America Game were selected in the MLB Amateur Draft including 34 first round picks. Top players that went on to sign professional contracts in 2012 include Byron Buxton (2012 No.2 Overall Pick, Minnesota Twins); Kevin Gausman (2012 No.4 Overall Pick, Baltimore Orioles); Addison Russell (2012 No.11 Overall Pick, Oakland Athletics); Gavin Cecchini (2012 No.12 Overall Pick, New York Mets); Nick Travieso (2012 No.14 Overall Pick, Cincinnati Reds); Deven Marrero (2012 No.24 Overall Pick, Boston Red Sox); Styker Trahan (2012 No.26 Overall Pick, Arizona Diamondbacks); Clinton Coulter (2012 No.27 Overall Pick, Milwaukee Brewers); Lewis Brinson (2012 No.29 Overall Pick, Texas Rangers); and Ty Hensley (2012 No.30 Overall Pick, New York Yankees).

Harry Davis Jr.’s commitment to Paine College was a decision he knew would shape more than just his college football career.
A 6-1, 210-pound linebacker at Miami Southridge, his determination to play at the collegiate level led him to joining NCSA Athletic Recruiting, an exclusive recruiting network that provides student athletes with the opportunity and technology to be proactive in their recruiting process.
Not only did Davis have the tools he needed for the recruiting process, NCSA also educated him on the steps he needed to achieve his goal.
Davis demonstrated the true meaning of “student-athlete” by keeping up with his grades while being a youth ministry public speaker. He plans to pursue a degree in sociology at the private college in Augusta, Ga.
His self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded him with the opportunity to play college football and earn a degree. He began playing youth football at age 5 with Palmetto Bay and later competed for the Palmetto Raiders.
Paine College is under the NCAA Division II banner. Visit www.ncsasports.org.
