AU Grabs Lead For Four-Star Defender

This talented high school talks about why Auburn is leading for his signature and a weekend official visit.

Miami, Fla.—Four star defensive end prospect Bryant Miller says that even after a good official visit to Michigan State over the weekend that he can't shake the feeling he had after visiting Auburn the weekend before.

"I haven't made a decision yet, but, honestly, I am feeling Auburn," he explains. "I am not going to commit to anybody right now. I am waiting until signing day.

"I have talked to Coach (Miller's recruiting Auburn coach Eddie) Gran and I have talked to Coach (defensive ends coach Terry) Price and everybody there knows how I am feeling," he adds. "But, I am not trying to commit right now, it is just something that I am praying about."

Miller says that the attitude that surrounds the Tigers' program is what has Auburn as a strong leader for his signature on National Signing Day (Feb.1). "First of all the coaching staff, I like what they stand for," he notes about why AU is leading. "I mean, they are all about winning, and Auburn is a program on the rise right now."

Miller says that he really enjoyed his trip to check out what John L. Smith's Michigan State Spartans had to offer, but notes the climate was pretty rough for a Miami native.

"It was excellent, but it was cold, it was bitter cold and I wasn't expecting all that," he says. "I saw snow for the first time, and it was just different. But, talking to all of the players and doing all of that I feel as is there is a great chance for me to come in there and play, and I feel like the best man is going to play."

Miller says he would rate the visit an eight, and notes that the deductions are mainly base on the weather. "Yes, Lord, oh my God, it was freezing," he exclaims. "When I went up there it was 30 degrees and they were saying that is not cold. I was like, ‘Oh my God, 30 degrees is cold,' and they were saying it gets down to like the negative 20s and stuff like that. It would be a tough transition."

With less than two weeks left until signing day it looks like the Tigers' biggest challenge for the talented defensive lineman will be the Michigan State Spartans of the great white north.

"It is just something that I need to pray about right now," he says about his final decision, which he plans to announce at a press conference at his Miami Central High on signing day. "At the same time I am feeling Auburn, I am starting to like Michigan, too."
