Syracuse (N.Y.) Christian Brothers is home to two 2007 prospects, quarterback Mike Paulus and safety Jovan Miller. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Paulus has received the bulk of the interest from colleges so far, but the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Miller is quickly catching up.
"Jovan is a great athlete that is strong and quick," said Christian Brothers head coach Joe Casamento. "He's a very good running back that led the area in touchdowns this year with 34. Despite that, I see him playing safety in college because he loves defense and is very intense. He's got an instinct for the game and knows how to put a whack on you. He's a big-time player.
"I think he's still got a little more growth in him. He'll probably end up being 6-foot-2, 215-pounds when it's all said and done. He's a very good student as well."

Schools showing interest in Miller include Ohio State, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Duke and Michigan State.
Paulus on the other hand holds offers from Duke, Ole Miss and North Carolina. He's also receiving a lot of interest from Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Ohio State.
"Mike is big and he's got a great arm," he said. "He's still learning the game, but he's going to be a really good quarterback and has a lot of upside to him. He plays very well for us in a pretty sophisticated offense and he came a long way this past year."
