Four-star Sarasota (Fla.) Riverview offensive tackle Drew Miller may be the Sunshine State’s top player at his position this season, and is getting the type of attention to back that lofty claim.
“I’ve had a ton of calls,” he said. “It’s hard to remember them all, but I know I’ve talked to Florida, Miami, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Michigan, Georgia Tech, USF, UCF, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State and a few others.
Any of those calls make a big impression?
“The ones where the head coach takes time to talk to you personally tells you a lot about how much they want you,” Miller said. “I’ve talked to coach Coker from Miami, coach Zook from Florida, coach Gailey from Georgia Tech, coach Fulmer from Tennessee and coach Leavitt from USF.”
Miller (6-6, 305, 5.2) is a member of the Rivals100 Team and the No. 6 offensive tackle in the nation. Coming off a junior season which saw him grade out at 90 percent and record 70 pancake blocks, he’s drawn dozens of scholarship offers and will likely be able to pick any school he chooses on signing day.
So who has the upper hand?
“Florida, Miami, Georgia and Tennessee are the main schools I’m interested in,” he said. “I don’t really have a leader right now. I’ve seen Florida and Miami, but I want to wait until I see the other two before I put them in any kind of order.”
Miller was scheduled to visit Miami for the Florida game last week, but had one of his Riverview games rescheduled for that Saturday. He’ll make his first unofficial visit of the season this weekend at the Tennessee-Florida game.
