Milburn was a 1992 Associated Press first-team All-America selection and finished his college football career as No. 3 on the Pac-10's all-purpose yardage list at 5,857.

Other inductees are Lauren Fleshman (women's track and field), Keith Jones (men's basketball), Anthony Mosse (men's swimming), Olympia Scott (women's basketball), Logan Tom (women's volleyball) and Brenda Villa (women's water polo).

Track and field

Stanford graduate Chris Derrick, who barely missed a trip to the London Olympics last summer, will run at the IAAF World Championships at Moscow in August after a third-place finish in the men's 10,000 meters at the USA national outdoor championships in Des Moines, Iowa.

Derrick crossed in 28 minutes, 52.25 seconds to finish behind Galen Rupp and Dathan Ritzenhein. A year ago, he was fourth at the U.S. trials to miss an Olympic bid by one spot.
