Highland Springs, Va. linebacker Jarrell Miller is one of the most heavily recruited players in the Atlantic East region. With more than 10 written offers from some of the top programs in the country, who is Miller favoring early?
"I don't think he has a favorite just yet it's so early," said Highland Springs head coach Scott Burton. "I have offers in writing from Tennessee, Nebraska, LSU, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Michigan State. Michigan and Southern Cal gave verbal offers, but we're only really counting the ones in writing right now."
Miller has been busy the last three weekends.
"He went to Virginia two weekends in a row, one for their junior day," said Burton. "And he was at Maryland's junior day last weekend."
How did the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder like UVA and Maryland?
"I had a good time at both places," he said. "I spoke with coach Groh for a little while both weekends and got to meet a lot of the best players from the area. Maryland I really liked. I spoke to coach Friedgen and he's good to talk to."
Is there a school that Miller would like to offer him?
"Maybe Georgia," he said. "I lived there until I was around 12, but I didn't really follow college teams. I was more of an NFL guy and followed NFL linebackers."
"Ray Lewis and I have a thing for Lawrence Taylor, he was amazing," he said. "Dick Butkus too."
Miller had the advantage of watching Victor Harris go through the recruiting process all last year before selecting Virginia Tech.
"Macho said to enjoy the process because it's a blessing," he said. "I'm going to handle it the way he did, take my visits and keep an open mind."
