Fresno Edison’s Aaron Miller has that rare quality. He has the size of a safety, but the speed and agility of a cornerback.
That makes the 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete a hot commodity in recruiting circles.
Miller has three interceptions as a senior, but that number is relatively low considering he had eight picks as a junior.
“They’re not throwing it to my side as a much this year,” Miller said. “But that’s ok with me. We’re winning and still in the playoffs and that’s what matters most.”
Edison (10-0-1) hosts Sanger this Friday in the 2nd round of playoffs.
Expecting to still be in the playoffs late into his senior year, Miller scheduled his official visits to be in tune with that idea.
His first official visit is not scheduled until Dec. 14, and that’s to UCLA. Michigan is set for Jan. 11, LSU for Jan. 18 and Oklahoma for Jan. 25. All but the Sooners have already offered a scholarship.
Miller declined to mention a favorite among his choices, but it is well known that UCLA starting cornerback Ricky Manning is a former Edison High star himself, and Miller had previously mentioned the Bruins as the leader for his signature.
Miller is slated to play in the Cali-Florida Bowl and is also contemplating playing in the U.S. Army Bowl, a national high school all-star game set for January in San Antonio.
He has yet to schedule any in-home visits because of the fact that his team remains in the playoffs.
