Milton has narrowed his top-10 list that he released in July and in the process, eliminated USC, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas and others.
Milton visited Ohio State in late-April during spring practices, a successful unofficial visit that put Ohio State near the top of his list.
The Buchanan High School running back has made an official visit to LSU but does not yet have officials scheduled for the other three schools in his final four.
Milton is one of two five-star running backs Ohio State is close to. Salpointe Catholic No. 5 running back Bijan Robinson is the other. Robinson has an unofficial visit with Ohio State planned for June 14.
Other running backs that have Ohio State near the tops of their lists include New Jersey No. 9 running back Jalen Berger, Florida four-star running back Lawrance Toafili, Akron four-star running back DeaMonte Trayanum and Dublin four-star all-purpose back Mike Drennen.
