In the comment on the post for the donation Watt left a note to the family:

“If there’s anything that I can do to help, please let me know. Sending my best wishes to Grant and the entire Milton family.”

Watt, who has been very inactive on social media since his injury in week three that required end of season back surgery, also tweeted this story about Grant on Tuesday night.

Milton, reportedly had a seizure on the sideline which required brain surgery Saturday night.

The GoFundMe page says this:

Grant Milton is a senior at The Woodlands High School in The Woodlands, Texas.  On Saturday, November 27th during a high school playoff game in Waco, TX, Grant sustained an injury that required emergency surgery.   This fund is being established to help his family with medical costs as well as living expenses during this time.  With Waco being over 2 hours from his home, his family will be incurring housing and other expenses to be by his side during this time.
