Miller: "What's Not To Like About Auburn"

Talented back Malik Miller talks about his visit for Auburn's A-Day Game on Saturday.

Madison, Ala.--Rated the nation’s top fullback prospect, but a talented running back in his own right, big Malik Miller was one of dozens of players on hand for Saturday’s A-Game Game in Auburn. Taking in the game while also spending time with Coach Gus Malzahn and running backs coach Tim Horton, Miller said he enjoyed everything about the trip.

“It was a great day,” Miller said. “Every time I come to Auburn I have a great trip, a great visit. Nothing but the best from Auburn. It was a great game and a lot of offensive power as you could see from the scrimmage. I enjoyed myself.”

Already very familiar with Auburn, Miller has been taking visits to the Plains since before his sophomore season with good friend and future Tiger Kerryon Johnson. Those trips have given him a good idea of what to expect and he said Saturday was no different.

“It doesn’t even jump out to me anymore because from day one I have been getting the special treatment, the priority,” Miller said. “Everybody speaks to me, the whole coaching staff speaks. It’s not even a surprise anymore because I know what I’m going to get when I come to Auburn.

“What’s not to like about Auburn,” he added. “I was talking to Coach Horton about that. Even if you don’t plan on coming to Auburn you have to love it there. If you don’t like it there’s something wrong with you. There are great people there, everyone you meet. I have a lot of friends and family there. I love it there.”

While he’s still keeping things close to the vest as far as potential favorites, Miller said there is no doubt Auburn will be on the list when the time comes. As far as anyone else he said that will be determined over the course of the next few weeks.

“I’m getting very close,” Miller said. “I have my top schools right now, but I probably won’t release it until the spring after coaches come and see me. I have three good ones right now. I’m just going to keep it down until the spring because I want to talk to the schools.”

Planning to visit Florida State with his next trip, Miller said he’s getting closer to making a decision, but want to visit each of his schools again before pulling the trigger. That could include a visit back to Auburn in May for Big Cat Weekend, something he said he’s talking about.
