Miller lands big offer late Thursday night

Washington (Pa.) Trinity's Andy Miller said his coach told him he was not an Ohio State caliber recruit early in the season, but by the middle of the season was. The Ohio State coaching staff agrees.
"(Ohio State assistant) coach Daniels just called," Miller said late Thursday night. "He said a scholarship offer was going to be sent in the mail.
"I leave (today) for an official visit to Indiana. I have West Virginia Dec. 9. Then right after that it looks like I'll take a Sunday/Monday visit to Ohio State.
"When coach Daniels called we talked about the Sunday/Monday thing. That is very, very likely. It's not set in stone, but unless something drastic happens, I'll visit Ohio State then.
"My other visit is to Pitt Dec. 16. I hope that will be it. Those are the four schools right now.
"Penn State is in the mix, but they haven't presented a (scholarship) offer."
When asked if he has a favorite, Miller said, "I go back and forth between the four schools that have offered. It will be a really tough decision. It's a good problem."
Miller played tight end during his senior season. He played in a very run oriented power-I offense, catching 11 passes for 193 yards. Miller averaged 17.5 yards per catch and scored two touchdowns.
"I'm being recruited as either a tight end or offensive tackle," Miller said. "That won't be a deciding factor in my decision. Of course I like tight end, but if I pick a school and they say offensive tackle, that's fine with me."
The 6-foot-6 and 250 pound Miller has 4.9 40-yard dash speed. He has a 3.99 GPA and scored a 1000 on the SAT.
Miller is the No. 30 tight end prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 30 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania.
