UCF seems prepared for that possibility.The Knights landed Notre Dame grad transfer quarterback Brandon Wimbush. Wimbush will compete with Darriel Mack Jr. for the starting job in 2019.Mack played in nine games, making two starts in place of Milton as a redshirt freshman in 2018.In the meantime, Milton will continue to recover. The most important thing is he gets his health back, regardless of when he can return to the gridiron.last_img read more
