With it already being the year of the defensive tackle and running back in the state of Texas, it’s time to add another prospect to the watch list at defensive tackle. Keep your eye on Killeen (Texas) Shoemaker tackle Roy Miller.
Miller, who is 6-foot-2 and 290 pounds, is one of the strongest prospects in the state of Texas. He has a bench-press max of 425 pounds and can squat 620 pounds. Add that with a 4.97-second time in the 40-yard dash and you have yourself a prospect that’s worthy of attention from the college coaches.
“I’m aggressive,” Miller said. “I’m a great bull rusher. I tend to play harder and harder as the game goes on.”
Miller missed some of his junior season with an inner knee bruise after somebody fell onto his knee. Still though, it didn’t stop him from earning honorable mention all-state and all-district honors.
“My knee is back to health and I’m working hard toward making All-America honors.”
Living on Fort Hood, Miller’s father is currently serving in Iraq.
“He’s a big hero,” Miller said.
Miller is getting early attention from Iowa, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Arkansas and Colorado. He hopes to camp this summer from Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M.
“I want to stay and play close to home,” he said.
