Travon McMillian did an interview ahead of the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl about his time at Virginia Tech and how he sought Frank Beamer's advice for which post-graduate bowl to play in. It's neat that Beamer is still helping out his former players and Hokies. McMillian also touched on why he transferred to Colorado.
"[Beamer] is the one who brought me to Virginia Tech and came to my high school when he was recruiting me," McMillian said. "He believed in me my freshman year. When your coach believes in you, you have to believe in him. I have great respect for any advice he gives."
"It was not a good fit," McMillian said. "I could not get in a groove. I felt like my [NFL] stock was dropping if I didn't make a move."
"I was the first at practice and the last to leave and never complained," McMilian said of his time with Fuente. "We did not see eye to eye."
