Washington (Pa.) Trinity tight end Andy Miller has been in contact with two new schools recently. Who is the 6-foot-6, 249-pounder hearing from and what does the prospect like about each of their programs?
"Recently I've been hearing from Wisconsin and Northwestern a lot," he said. "One of the Northwestern coaches checked out one of my practices and Wisconsin got some film on me and they were very impressed. I know you can't beat the academics at Northwestern and my cousin went to Wisconsin and had nothing but good things to say about the school. I get a lot of feedback about their school, but I still don't know a lot about either program.
"I have talked to coach Patton at Northwestern and coach Bielema at Wisconsin. My coach was impressed from the short time he talked to coach Patton. I should be talking to him pretty soon as he's supposed to call me back. I talked to coach Bielema for 15 or 20 minutes about football, my season and what I want out of a college. I was impressed with my conversation with him and it's an honor to be able to be recruited by the next head coach. He obviously has a lot of power in the program and is planning to use me if I go there."
The three-star prospect has a very high interest in both programs.
"I'd say right now they are under Indiana and North Carolina State," he said. "I'm definitely hoping to get out and take officials to those two schools. I've developed mentally some pros and cons for all my schools and I'm impressed with the Wolfpack and Hoosiers. It's tough, but I've got to continue narrowing my list down. I don't know how many officials I'll take, but I don't think I'll take five. I only plan on taking them to schools I'm 85-90% sure I'd want to go to."
Miller has helped Trinity to a 4-2 season.
"My season has been going great as far as blocking goes. I'm still not exactly where I want to be, but from watching film I see a different person out there than last year," he said. "I don't know what it is maybe more confidence, size or something else. I definitely have a lot of pancakes this year and maybe average six a game. I also have six receptions including a 67-yard pass for a touchdown. I don't get the ball that much because we have an outstanding running back, quarterback and receiver, but I can say I've only dropped one pass that was thrown to me."
