From today's Press Conference at the University of Idaho:

I got to know Eric very well. And he’s a great, great kid. Redshirt freshman from southern California. Had a bright future, but not only that, he was a great kid. And cared about his teammates, and cared about football, and cared about the University of Idaho. And he was a very fun kid to be around.
                                                      -NICK HOLT, Vandal Football Head Coach

From the Seattle Times:

McMillan's former high school coach, Wally Clark, said McMillan was both a scholar who carried a 3.5 grade point average and popular athlete after moving to Murrieta Valley from Alabama to live with an aunt.

"If you wanted a son, you'd pick Eric McMillan. He affected everybody he was around," Clark said. "He had a bubbly personality, a huge white smile, no enemies. Teachers used him as an example: This is what you want to become."'
