HOOVER, Ala. - Duncan (SC) Byrnes cornerback Prince Miller has been to a number of 7-on-7 tournaments this summer, but this weekend's was the most prestigous. Miller had a solid tournament and has the scholarship offers to show why he's one of the best in the Palmetto State. He may be closer than ever to making a decision, but is saying less than ever about recruiting these days.
"I am down to Georgia, Florida State and Tennessee and nothing has changed since I cut my list to three schools," Miller said. "We've been busy doing camps and 7-on-7 tournaments this summer so it's been hard to find time to spend focusing on recruiting. The next couple of weeks we are just working out and stuff and getting ready for practice. We actually have a couple of weeks off and something may happen then, but I don't know."
The 5-foot-8, 185-pound Miller runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, has a 300-pound bench press and 475-pound squat.
"I would like to get this over with and have a decision made before the season starts," Miller said. "I just know that I have to stay patient and make the right decision and not rush it. I have visted all three schools and I talk to coaches from all of them, but I need a little bit more time before I commit."
Miller is ranked as the No. 7 player in the state of South Carolina by Rivals.com. He has helped to lead Byrnes to three consecutive state titles.
"It's hard right now to seperate the schools because there isn't a big difference in any of them," Miller said. "They are all relatively close to home, they're all great programs with great coaches. Each of them have their little advantages, but it all kind of balances out. I will wait as long as I need to make the right decision."
As a junior Miller had five interceptions and managed to score three defensive touchdowns for the Rebels. This weekend he helped lead Byrnes to a second straight semi-final appearance in Hoover before bowing out to Springdale.
"I don't know that I had my best tournament this weekend," Miller said.
"Some of our other defensive backs have done better than me I think. I've made some big plays and done some good things, but I think I could have done better, but I am my own biggest critic."
