LB Miller enjoys unofficial

Highland Springs, Va. linebacker Jarrell Miller decided to take an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech this past weekend instead of his scheduled official. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder has already been to Tennessee on an official and has four more scheduled. How did he like Blacksburg this weekend and when will his official visit be taken?
"It's a tough loss obviously, but the crowd was good and it was a good visit," said Miller, ranked as the No. 6 inside linebacker in the country. "I spoke to a few players, mostly former teammates."
Miller spoke to Hokies freshman and former teammate Victor Harris.
"He's doing good, he likes it there," he said. "I'll go there on my official visit on Dec. 7 (mid-week visit)."
Miller has already been to Tennessee and said that recent coaching changes and rumors won't hurt their chances with him.
"It doesn't affect me," he said. "It's sad to see a coach leave, but it doesn't change what I like about Tennessee."
Next up for Miller is an official visit to Virginia this weekend. He'll follow that with an official to Florida on Nov. 25 and then back-to-back visits to North Carolina and Virginia Tech. Maryland is also still in the mix. He's been to College Park a couple of times on unofficial visits.
Obviously he gets the same question often -- does Virginia Tech have an advantage because of his teammates and his school's connection to the Hokies?
"No advantage at all," he said. "I'm not going to go to a school because my teammates or friends go there. There's much more to the decision than that."
Highland Springs will battle Varina this weekend.
