Four-star linebacker/tight end/athlete Gabe Miller (6-4, 220, 4.7) from Lake Oswego, Ore., is a tremendous athlete and brings a lot of ability to the table. He has been a jack-of-all-trades for the Lakers this season and one of the reasons that his team is off to a perfect 7-0 after just beating the State's No.1 ranked team Clackamas 21-9 last Friday.
Miller scored two of his team's three touchdowns in the win and made a ton of plays on defense.
"Gabe is doing great for us this season," Lake Oswego coach Steve Coury said. "We move him around a lot and use him in a variety of ways."
"Gabe has played fullback, tight end and some wide receiver for us," Coury said. "On defense we kind of use him as a strong safety/outside linebacker for us. Gabe is doing a great job for us on both sides of the ball."
"We're not big on stats but Gabe has three picks and eight or nine sacks in seven games," Coury said. "There's a lot of things Gabe can do."
"You can't coach the things that Gabe has," Coury said. "He has great size, speed and athleticism. Gabe has such a tremendous upside to him there's no telling how good he's going to get."
"There's so many positions that Gabe can play," Coury said. "Because of his versatility his recruitment is getting a boost. Gabe is getting is a lot colleges requesting film on him and a lot colleges calling him."
"Gabe is the best player in the state this year," Coury said. "And one of the best players to come out of the state."
"We're rated third in the state," Coury said. "Gabe is a huge reason why."
According to Coury, Miller has offers from Oregon, Oregon State, Cal and Colorado.
"Gabe has already taken one official visit to Oregon when the Ducks played USC," Coury said. "He liked the visit a lot and had a good time, at least for the first half of the game. He has brother attending Oregon and they had a chance to hang out with each other."
Miller will visit Colorado in two weeks on November 4th. He will probably visit Oregon State after the season and he could be setting up a visit to Cal.
Miller has made the Rivals.com Rivals250 team for the class of 2006. He is rated by Rivals.com as the nation's No. 10 inside linebacker and he is made the Rivals.com preseason Oregon Top 15 2006 landing as the Castor Canadensis State's No. 2 prospect at any position.
