Richard Miller talks with ArmySports.com

Richard Miller (6-5, 287) talked with ArmySports.com about his commitment to the United States Military Academy. Miller is an offensive lineman from Bloomingdale Senior High School in Valrico, Fla.

Richard Miller had a shock when he visited West Point; "It was definitely the place for me. The only major drawback I felt was when I first got off the plane, it was only 5 degrees there," said the native of the Sunshine State.

Miller ultimately committed to Army and will have four years to get used to the weather. "The history behind the school had a lot to do with it, but by me coming up for my visit, seeing the history and walking through the halls where great men have gone before me meant a lot. I love football, and I think I can be a big part of Army Football."

The big lineman, who benches 325 pounds and runs a 5.3 forty yard dash, was recruited by a host of colleges including West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, USF, UCF and The Citadel. Miller visited West Point and The Citadel. "Army won hands down," according to the massive lineman.

After his senior season Miller was selected First Team All-District, All-Western Conference and was selected to play in the County All-Star Game.

Miller, who also wrestled and threw the shot put, expects to attend West Point Prep School prior to reporting to the Academy, "They want to re-evaluate my English scores after this spring. Right now I am slated for the Prep School", said the promising commit.
