This time of year can often take a lot out of any prospect.
Just ask four-star Sarasota (Fla.) Riverview offensive lineman Drew Miller.
Or more precisely, his father.
“Drew’s in bed early tonight,” Randy Miller said. “That’s unusual for him, but he’s pretty worn out. We went to the Florida game this weekend, and he’s been working out hard for a weightlifting competition he’ll be going to up in Atlanta, so he’s had a lot going on lately.
“It’s not letting up, either. We had Florida’s coaches in here for dinner tonight. We had a great time with them. He has Tennessee and Kentucky coming tomorrow, and Miami will be in the house on Wednesday. And, of course, the phone’s been ringing off the hook.”
The elder Miller confirmed that Miller’s official visit dates remain intact. He’s completed one, Georgia on Nov. 14, and he’s got Miami (12/12), Florida (1/9), Tennessee (1/16) and Florida State (1/23).
Asked about the somewhat unusual presence of Kentucky in the home on Tuesday, Miller said: “We’re originally from Kentucky, and he’s had some relatives play there, a couple of uncles – Donnie Miller in the 60s and Steve Kelly in the late 70s/early 80s. We’ve taken an unofficial visit up there, and their coaches have always stayed in touch. I’m not real sure what their chances are at this point, but if he had a sixth official visit to take, it would probably be them.”
Tuesday will also see Miller presented with his game jersey for the U.S. Army All-American Game.
A member of the Rivals100 Team, Miller (6-6, 305, 5.2) has consistently named Florida and Miami as his co-leaders this fall.
“I don’t think there’s been any big changes as far as that goes,” his father said.
