Sorghum is in the grass family and is closely related to corn. In fact, when it's young it is nearly impossible to differentiate it from corn. If anyone ever tells you they have volunteer corn in their garden, you can sound smart by guessing that it's sorghum.

Milo is the more popular of the grain sorghums. It is a major feed grain for cattle and poultry and is a significant component in wild bird feed. Broom corn is a bit different. I used to grow it to make brooms in my formative years. Taller than milo, seed heads have long branches, which can be readily shaped into brooms. Milo heads are too tight and compact for brooms.
