It's never too late to add some help and Jamie Dixon did just that by adding 6'2" combo guard Jonathan Milligan today. Milligan, of Kilgore (TX) JC, will have two years of eligibility left. A native of Orlando, FL, Milligan averaged 14.3 ppg and 3.7 apg last year. He also proved to be a very good shooter, going 48.3% from the field, as well as 40.2% from three, and 79.1% from the free throw line. He also has excellent quickness.
Milligan originally signed with Florida Gulf Coast but recently was considered ineligible by the NCAA. Somehow things changed in the last week, and he's now a Panther. He joins a suddenly deep backcourt of James Robinson, Sterling Smith, and Damon Wilson.
Coming out of high school, Milligan was considered a top 100 prospect by MaxPreps, and ESPN ranked him the No. 25 point guard in the country. Tennessee and Creighton were his most recent offers, and NC State and Marquette were also interested.
