Four-star linebacker Jarrell Miller out of Highland Springs, Va. took his first official visit of the season this weekend to Tennessee. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder with 4.7-second speed really enjoyed his visit to Knoxville and said that this was one of the better college football games he had ever been to.
"I loved it there, I really enjoyed myself and I've been to a lot of football games, but this one stood out. It's probably one of the best games I've ever seen, I felt like it was a professional game because the crowd was hyped and they had 100,000 fans there," he said. "I even learned the song Rocky Top, but it wasn't a great day since they lost, but I think they'll bounce back real soon.
"On the field, I thought they did some very good defenses. In some places they had the defensive line matched up with the offensive linemen which allowed the linebackers to make all the plays. I feel it's a very good defense to play in."

The Rivals250 prospect did a lot on his visit to Tennessee.
"I got to see a little bit of the campus and went to the game," he said. "I also had breakfast, lunch and dinner with the coaches and sat down and had one-on-one conversations with coaches Travis and Fulmer. I had a great time talking with them and they showed me where I exactly fit in and even told me I have an opportunity to start as a freshman since they'll be losing five linebackers. It's a real good opportunity if I go there and I can make an impact on the program. Being able to start for a team in the SEC is big because if I go there I look forward to potentially starting."
Miller rated his trip a 10.
"I'd give it that score because of everything I saw and experienced," he said. "I'd say everyone is still pretty even though since I've got to take all my other official visits. I've got visits scheduled with Virginia on November 4th and Virginia Tech on November 11th for sure, I think most likely I'll take all five of them by going to North Carolina and Florida as well. I like both of those schools a lot and want to check them out more."
In the future, the No. 6 inside linebacker in the country hopes to receive a similar experience on his officials like he did at Tennessee.
"I'm looking forward to seeing the same thing out of all the other schools like I did at Tennessee," he said. "This includes seeing a hyped game, the school, hanging out with the players, seeing the academic part including the business school since that's what I'll be majoring in and talking with the coaches."
This season Miller has helped Highland Springs to a 4-1 record.

It was really wet and slippery out there and we struggled, but came back."Here to view this Link.
