The big time four-star wide receiver from San Joaquin Memorial High School (Fresno, CA) officially committed to Washington today. He verbally committed to Washington in June of this year over 24 other offers from schools like Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and 11 of the Pac-12 schools.

Oklahoma and Notre Dame were the two biggest competitors in his recruitment, but ultimately the 6’2” 182 lbs WR committed to Washington, even before his official visit during the USC game in September.
A high four-star in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings, McMillan is ranked as the No. 11 wide receiver nationally in the 2020 class and the No. 8 prospect in the state of California. McMillan has great size and elite speed. He’s a top end two-sport athlete (Division I baseball prospect), and has excellent hands and a huge catch radius. He finished his senior season with 89 receptions for 1,644 yards and 12 TDs often while seeing double coverage.
Much has been made about the lack of playing time early for freshman at the wide receiver position for Washington, especially after Puka Nacua looked like a star before he broke his foot. McMillan has similar talent to Nacua and if will likely contend for immediate playing time.
