Gary Cosby Jr. - USA Today Sports

Jalen Milroe is having an offseason to remember as an Alabama quarterback.

He has a brand new head coach, received his Southeastern Conference Championship ring from last season, made significant improvement in spring practice, and met basketball royalty at a the Geico 500 NASCAR event at Talladega Superspeedway.

Michael Jordan, who is arguably the greatest player in the history of the National Basketball Association, took a photo Sunday with Milroe.

The six-time champion, billionaire businessman, and constant competitor smiled in the picture with Milroe.

Jordan was at his best when he was doubted as a player, and Milroe wants to continue to prove himself right at Alabama.

He is focused on delivering the Tide to a College Football National Championship in the fall.
