Corona (Calif.) Centennial wide out Dashan Miller took his final official visit this past weekend to Oregon State and the Beavers are in a dead lock with UTEP where Miller visited back in November.
Miller, 6-0, 185 pounds is a very talented player and one of the more underrated and under-recruited players in the west this year. He visited UTEP (Nov. 12) and was in Corvallis this past weekend.
"Oh man, I had a great time," Miller said. "Oregon State has a lot going for it and this is going to be a much harder decision than I thought. I like the offense a lot at Oregon State and the coaching staff is great. They had a lot of real good players visiting this past weekend and I think they're building something there for sure.
"When I visited UTEP, I was only there Saturday-Sunday so I was able to spend more time at Oregon State this past weekend because I left on Friday. I never ate so much in my life as I did on this visit. I feel like all I did was eat but it was great and I loved spending a lot of time there to get to know the players on the team and the staff better.
"For me, I'm really looking at a couple of things in making my decision. The first one is I want to go somewhere that throws the ball and both Oregon State and UTEP throw the heck out of the ball. The second thing is I want to go somewhere that I'll have a strong relationship with the coaching staff and at both of those schools, I feel very close to the staff and in fact, I'm already dreading having to tell one of them no. No kidding, I wish I could just commit to both right now but I know I can't.
"Oregon State is in the Pac 10 and growing up, I always dreamed of playing in the Pac 10 but I can't let that influence me. I have to do what is best for me and can't choose a school just because of what conference it's in. UTEP is coming in for a home visit (Jan. 17) and I'm sure Oregon State will be coming to the house once more as well. Hopefully I'll be able to decide in about two weeks or so but right now, it's really too close to call."
