The nation’s premier defensive end says he has yet to schedule any of his official visits, but is in the process of narrowing down his list of schools.
“I’ve been focused on getting ready for my SAT,” said five-star Colquitt (Ga.) Miller County product Brandon Miller. “I really haven’t done much with recruiting, but I’m looking at a few teams right now.”
“Kentucky, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn and maybe some others” he said. “Florida State came by the house, coach Allen and coach Haggins. It went alright. Georgia Tech is coming here tomorrow. I’m expecting Kentucky and Georgia sometime.”
Asked if he had a leader at this point, Miller said: “No. I can’t really say I do right now. I’m just trying to listen to everybody and find somewhere I can play and get a good education... mainly get a good education.”
Florida State and Georgia have been perceived as the leaders for quite some time. When asked about the somewhat unusual inclusion of Kentucky alongside those traditional power programs, Miller said: “They’ve just been recruiting me real hard the whole time. I like their coaches, especially coach Archer. They think I could come in and start at outside linebacker. And it’s a good school.”
Are there enough positives there to overcome the Seminoles or Bulldogs?
“I don’t know,” he said. “I just don’t know right now. They’re all great schools.”
Miller made numerous unofficial visits for games at Florida State and Georgia this season, and intended to make one to Kentucky, but “I had something come up where I couldn’t make it.”
A member of the Rivals100 Team, Miller (6-4, 225, 4.65) missed a great deal of his senior season due to injuries. As a junior, however, he recorded 98 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, six sacks and three interceptions to emerge as a star on the national level.
Academically, he maintains a 2.9 GPA and will be taking his test again next week.
