Waterford (Wisc.) defensive tackle Brandon Miller is coming off a productive junior season in 2011, and is starting to generate interest from BCS Conference programs. Two of the most interested appear to be Michigan State and Wisconsin.
"I've been getting weekly letters from [Wisconsin-]Madison and Michigan State about how their game went the week before," Miller reported. "I've been exchanging emails with a few other colleges too."
Among the other programs in communication with Miller are Oregon and Arkansas, but his contact with the Badgers and Spartans has been most consistent thus far. He has not yet visited East Lansing, but said he would be "exhilarated" to receive an invite. He was able make it out to Wisconsin earlier this fall.
"They invited me to their game against Purdue and I toured the facilities," Miller said. "It was a really nice experience."
Miller said he did not start following college football closely until last year, and when he did he mostly followed the home state Badgers. He goes into the recruiting process seeing what interest he can generate, though, and what options may be available to him for the next level.
"The film was just put up yesterday, so I emailed some of the coaches that have been [in contact], telling them that the film was up," Miller said.
This past fall, the 6-5, 290-pound Miller primarily played defensive line, and estimated an average of close to eight tackles and a sack per game. His size could also translate over the offensive line, and he did see some spot duty there as well this past fall.
"Honestly, I like defensive line better, but I can go both ways and am pretty good on both sides," Miller said.
