2010 Playmaker Holding Three Early Offers

One of the fastest players in Alabama for the 2010 class talks recruiting.

Millbrook, Ala.--One of the top athletes in Alabama for the 2010 class is speedy Demarcus Milliner from Stanhope-Elmore High School. At 6-0, 180, Milliner has already heard from several schools and has offers from three at the moment.

"I'm hearing from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Stanford and a few other schools," Milliner tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I have offers from Alabama, Auburn and Stanford."

With a new coaching staff at Auburn, Milliner says that he hopes to visit and get a chance to get to know them over the course of the spring and summer. Right now he says he likes what he sees out of the group led by Gene Chizik.

"I guess he's got to be a good coach because if he wasn't they wouldn't bring him in," Milliner says. "I want to visit to get a better impression of him and the staff."

A two-way standout for the Mustangs, Milliner uses his sub 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash to be an impact player at both wide receiver and defensive back. As a junior he had over 600 rushing yards, six interceptions and returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. Milliner says it's no secret what makes him a success.

"I use my speed and my athleticism," Milliner says. "That's what helps me out."

A starter since his freshman season for Stanhope-Elmore, Milliner concentrated on just the offensive side of things full-time until 2008 when he was a mainstay on both sides of the ball. He says while many teams are recruiting him for defense, he likes offense the best at the moment.

In addition to his exploits in football, Milliner is also part of a resurgent Mustang basketball team this season and they're currently 19-6 after defeating Auburn to win the region championship on Monday. If that wasn't enough he's also a member of the track team with a personal best 100 meter time of 10.6 seconds.

Milliner attended camp at Alabama last summer and says he has plans to go back to Tuscaloosa as well as Auburn and somewhere out of the state.
