Miller Raves Over Tempe Trip

For months now Arizona State has been one of the favorites for Shareef Miller, and following his official visit to the Sun Devils this past weekend are now the school to beat for his services. Devils Digest caught up with the Philadelphia defensive lineman to recap his Tempe experience and his recruitment.

“The thing the most I liked about the visit were the coaches,” Miller said. “They were very nice, told me everything about the program and the brotherhood and how this place will be the perfect place for me. They were tremendous and are big on family. They showed me how I could be successful not only on the field but also off the field and after the football education wise.

“I loved the area, the sun, and the 72 degrees because back home in Philadelphia is cold right now. I can see myself being here. I know some of the players like Jaelen Strong and DeAndre Scott and they did well here.”

The 6-5 220-pound Shareef Miller said that his versatility is an attractive trait in the eyes of the Arizona State staff and in turn he feels that he could flourish in their defensive scheme.

“They said I could play either Devil (backer) or defensive end,” Miller commented. “They want me to rush the quarterback. They really think I could do well at my position and being one the main guys on defense. I watched film with them and I know I can fit in perfectly here. They like my skills but want me to be faster, stronger and bigger. They like my overall talent and said once I get into the weight room I will be a beast.”

Miller already visited Pittsburgh and will visit Penn State this coming weekend. He added that due to his extremely positive experience during his ASU visit he won’t take any trips on the weekend of the 30th.

“After this visit Arizona State is at the top of my list,” Miller stated. “They are one of the top schools in the country and one of the best places to live at. I’m gonna take my visit to Penn State and then sit back and take my time making the best decision.

“I’m going to look for the place where I feel the most comfortable, and a place where I can be the most successful on and off the field. Academics are big for me too.”
