McMillan told 247Sports, "It was a really tough decision, I had to follow my heart and that led me to Oregon. I’ve always liked Oregon, growing up, that was my favorite school." He went on to say, "I had some great options but in the end, I felt like Oregon was the best all around fit. I just fell in love with the campus, the facilities and how they can develop me at Oregon. I felt so comfortable and that was the school where I felt like I could truly just be myself and show my true colors and I'm really excited be a Duck right now."
McMillan held 25 offers before narrowing his decision down to three - Arizona, Oregon and USC - and ultimately choosing Oregon.
A four-year varsity letterman and multi-sport athlete for Servite, McMillan has been a standout since he stepped on campus and has the accolades to prove it. In football, he has earned 1st Team All-Trinity League recognition twice and 1st Team All-CIF honors in addition to being named MaxPreps Sophomore All-American, MaxPreps All-State, CalHi Sports All-State, All-Orange County and most recently the 2021 OC Register Athlete of the Year.
He has also been selected All-League and All-CIF in volleyball while leading the team to the CIF-SS D2 semifinals in 2021. In route, he tied a school record for most kills in a match with 36.
McMillan is the fourth senior football player to announce his college destination joining Keyan Burnett and Noah Fifita who are headed to Arizona and Mason Graham who is committed to Boise State.
