Four-star linebacker Jarrell Miller out of Highland Springs, Va. has helped the Springers to a 2-1 start. We talked to the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder's coach Scott Burton to see how Miller's season is going.
"Jarrell is playing very well with a lot of emotion and intensity on the field," he said. "He's making all the plays he's supposed to and even a lot of them he's not. He's definitely living up to the preseason hype."
How does the Rivals250 star compare to last year?
"There's no comparison of him this time last year because he wasn't very good," he said. "He was an imposing and intimidating figure, but really didn't start picking it up until the end of the year. This year he's picked up where he left off and improving. He sees the game a lot better now and this causes him to be in better position."
Miller still has three official visits scheduled with Virginia, Virginia Tech and Tennessee, but by no means are those the linebacker's favorites.
"Those are the three he's just committed to taking visits to, it's been tough to catch other coaches and set up visits," he said. "I know he's narrowed his list to approximately 10 or 11 schools which includes those and North Carolina State, Nebraska, Florida, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina and Penn State."
The No. 7 inside linebacker in the country plans to have all his visits done in the next couple months.
