Hoosiers impress TE

Three-star tight end Andy Miller took his first official visit this weekend to Indiana. The Washington (Pa.) Trinity prospect gave high ratings to the Hoosier visit. What in particular did the 6-foot-6, 249-pounder enjoy about Indiana?
"It was a great visit," he said. "The people were wonderful and I think I fit in with the players too. I could really relate to them. The coaches seemed awesome also.
"I got there Friday and met up with my host Tim Sergi who's a great guy. He showed me college life at Indiana and was a really genuine person that answered all my questions. He told me that a lot of high profile kids have come in transferring from Notre Dame and other schools. What drew them there were the people including the coaches, academic support staff and even the students."
On the visit, Miller met with players, went to an Indiana basketball game and met with head coach Terry Hoeppner.
"It was great meeting with him like everything else on the trip," he said. "He's really honest, loyal person and he seems to genuinely care about his players. He's strictly a player's coach and I admire that."
What did the No. 30 tight end in the country rate his trip to Indiana?
"This was my first visit and it was great, so I'd say it's definitely a nine or ten," he said. "There was nothing I didn't like about it, but I'm sure that'll be my experience everywhere. I did have a really good feeling there."
After the visit, the Hoosiers are still even with Miller's three other leaders West Virginia, Ohio State and Pittsburgh.
"I'm headed to West Virginia next and the bar is set pretty high after this trip," he said. "I'm looking to see what kind of people I'll be around for the next four or five years. I think as far as coaching goes their staff seems like great guys that are full of energy."
Following a trip next weekend to West Virginia, the No. 30 tight end in the country heads to Ohio State early the following week.
"That's another great option that is a very successful program," he said. "I like that they're going to make to the BCS this year because it's nice to be part of a successful group of people."
Finally, what does Miller think of in-state Pittsburgh?
"I've been in the most contact with coach Junko and he even came to my house last week," he said. "He's a really impressive guy and seems to have his priorities in line and cares what's best for me. I like that."
So far the Panthers are the only team to make in-home visit, but Indiana and West Virginia are expecting to make the trip to visit Miller this week.
