Miller Rates AU Visit A "10"

Bryant Miller has a busy weekend with a trip to Auburn and an all-star game.

Miami, Fla.--Bryant Miller, one of 21 official visitors to Auburn over the weekend, rates his trip to check out the Tigers a perfect "10."

The defensive end from Central High School wrapped up his visit to Auburn early in order to get back home to play in Sunday's Dade-Broward All-Star Game.

"My visit was excellent," Miller says. "When I first got there they put me with Q (Quentin Groves), the defensive end. He showed me around the town and he showed me around the campus. He showed me the ins and outs. He was honest with me.

"I really enjoyed myself," Miller adds. "I met new people and experienced new things. It was just an excellent experience."

The 6-4, 240-pound defensive had been to Auburn previously to a summer football camp, where he was a standout. He notes that Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville emphasized that the Tigers are very interested in signing him.

"He said if I decide to come there is a great possibility of me getting on that line and playing (early)," Miller says.

On Sunday evening, he and another official visitor to Auburn over the weekend, defensive lineman Mike Blanc from Deerfield Beach, Fla., will be playing in the Dade-Broward All-Star Game. "It's going to be a real long day," he notes.

Commenting on his visit to Auburn, Miller says, "We went to parties and we chilled out. It was just a good feeling to see that the Auburn team is one with each other. There are no beefs. Everybody gets along great."

Bryant Miller is shown at a football camp prior to his senior season.

Miller notes that he was impressed with the academic staff he talked to while on the AU campus. He says that he is interested in engineering. "That was a big part of the trip and it was a good part, too," he says.

"One thing I really like about Auburn is that they are straight with you. They tell you the academics are important and that everything you do is going to be hard. You have to work hard and bust your butt in the classroom to make it happen. For me that should be no problem."

Another part of the visit that stood out were the athletic facilities--Jordan-Hare Stadium and the football complex. "They are beautiful," Miller says. "I was really impressed with them."

Commenting on Sunday evening's all-star game, Miller says, "I am looking forward to it. I really don't need this thing. It is about bragging rights. It is going to be an intense game. I just need to be care that I don't get hurt out there."

His trip to Auburn was his first official visit. Next week he plans to check out Michigan. "I also want to visit South Florida and two more, but I don't know how I am going to do it."
