Hunter Does Dallas

Fresh off getting an offer from a familiar head coach at an SEC school, Sylvan Hills star Hunter Miller (6-1, 185, 4.5) is already in Dallas for the Cotton Bowl and hoping that the Razorbacks also extend an offer.

DALLAS - Sylvan Hills standout Hunter Miller is an unabashed University of Arkansas fan.

In fact, Miller (6-1, 185, 4.5) – a standout who was at several Razorback home games this season – and his family are already in Dallas for Tuesday's Cotton Bowl between No. 25 Arkansas (8-4) and No. 7 Missouri (11-2).

"I think Arkansas has a great chance to win the game," Miller said. "I don't think Missouri has seen great running backs like we have with Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. I also think our defense will be able to stand up to their attack."

As a quarterback, Miller rushed for over 1,000 yards and 21 touchdowns and also had over 1,000 yards passing and four more scores.

He also had 35 tackles, 7 pass breakups and two interceptions, both that he took back for scores.

Miller hopes that new Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino will see fit to offer him a scholarship and he recently talked with Razorback assistant Tim Horton and Petrino about that possibility.

"I talked to Coach Horton and then he put Coach Petrino on the phone and they said they really liked my highlight tape and was pleased with what he saw," Miller said. "He wants me to take an official visit and get to know them and see how things work out. They are talking about me playing safety or even running back."

Ironically, Miller got an offer from Ole Miss a couple of days ago – one from former Razorback and current Rebel head coach Houston Nutt.

"Coach Houston Nutt offered me two days ago," Miller said. "I was kind of surprised that Arkansas let him go, but that doesn't change my feeling about Arkansas or him."

Miller is set to visit Ole Miss on Jan. 11-13, Arkansas State on Jan. 18-20 and then Arkansas on either Jan. 25-27 or Feb. 1-3.

"I am suppose to visit Arkansas on Feb. 1, but since I moved the Ole Miss visit up to the 11th from the 25th, I think I will try to go to Arkansas on the 25th instead."

Miller is also a standout baseball player and has thought about playing that sport in college.

"Now that I have a football offer from Ole Miss, I think I will definitely play football," Miller said. "But I am now just going to wait and see what happens with Arkansas and if they offer when I take my visit."
