Those awaiting word on the leaders for five-star Colquitt (Ga.) Miller County defensive end Brandon Miller may find themselves in a holding pattern for a while.
“I’ve not been thinking about things lately,” said Miller, the No. 8 player overall in the nation and the top prospect at his position. “I’ve tried to block all of that stuff out and just concentrate on my team’s season. They need me right now. We’re 5-3 and kind of playing inconsistent getting ready for the playoffs. I want to give everything I have to them and not really worry about recruiting.”
Miller (6-4, 225, 4.65) said his list of prospective schools includes “anybody who’s recruiting me.”
Asked if Georgia and Florida State, two schools which have been prominent on his list since day one, were still in the picture, he said, “Yes, definitely. But they’re not necessarily on top.
“I’m serious when I say I’m wide open. Florida State’s coach called a couple of days ago and asked if I knew where I wanted to play. I told him the same thing – I have no idea right now.”
Miller noted, however, that one school in particular has picked up its intensity.
“Alabama is probably recruiting me harder than anyone right now,” he said. “They came to one of my practices to watch me, and they’ve been calling a lot. They really want me to go there for a visit."
In addition to Alabama, Georgia and Florida State, Miller has listed Auburn, Georgia Tech, LSU, Kentucky, Clemson and Tennessee in the past. He's got offers from almost every major program in the country.
He said he’s been unable to any recent unofficial visits due to work, but plans are in the works to attend the Georgia-Auburn game on Nov. 15.
“I haven’t set any official visits yet,” Miller added. “I’m going to wait until the season is over.”
As a junior, Miller recorded 98 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, six sacks, three interceptions and three fumble recoveries.
He maintains a 2.9 GPA and is awaiting his latest test scores.
