He initially attended Boston College in 2015-16, and played in 30 games for the Eagles, but then decided to transfer to William & Mary. After sitting out for a year, he played for two seasons and averaged 13 points per game each year, and shot better than 42% from beyond the arc.

Despina Barton shared Milon’s initial thoughts following his announcement:
Just got off the phone with Matt...told me he was deciding between Virginia Tech, Ohio State and UCF... said "Coming home, family seeing every game is cool for me... Dawkins has turned the program around and I want to be a part of it."— Despina (@DespinaBarton) May 1, 2019
