Capital HS ATH Matt Miller (Helena, MT) is perhaps the top prospect in the State of Montana for the 2010 recruiting class. Miller has received offers from numerous schools and has narrowed his list down to five. "Nothing has really changed," he said. "Oregon, Oregon State, Boise State, Stanford, and Arizona State are my top five," he added. Boise State, Arizona State, and Stanford are the three schools in Miller's top five that have offered at this point.

Monday of each week appears to be the day that Miller (6'4, 210, 4.55) speaks to the coaching staff of each school. "Monday is the day I usually speak to the coaches recruiting me," he said. "Coach Pease is who I talked to last. We have a weekly conversation every Monday. Just trying to build a relationship. They're getting ready for practice so we talked a lot about football."

Miller thinks highly of (Assistant Head Coach/WRs Coach) Brent Pease. "He's a good guy and real easy to talk to," he said. "We hit it off right away. We have similar personalities."

The Broncos are mostly showing interest in Miller for the WR position. "Boise State is talking more about receiver," he said. "Stanford has talked about both, mostly safety for ASU, Oregon likes me at LB, and Oregon State has talked about receiver and safety." Is there a preference? "No preference," he said. "I think I'm best at WR."

The standout WR originally thought he would commit before his senior season. He has decided to take his time and simply commit when he feels comfortable. "I'll commit whenever I'm comfortable with the school," Miller said. "It could be next week or on Signing Day." Matt's goal is to focus on three specific schools and narrow his list down once again in the near future. "Ideally, I'd like to take three visits."

The Capital Bruins simply reload year after year as Miller has been a part of three consecutive state championship teams. The youth of the 2009 team appears to be coming along quite well. "It was good," he said in reference to the summer workouts. "We were young and inexperienced at the beginning of the summer. We've had a pretty good summer in the weight room and I think we can win another state championship," Miller added.

The Bruins will open the season against Great Falls HS during the first week of September. "They lost their QB," he said. "They'll be pretty young. It's the first game, though. Anything can happen." will continue to have updates on Matt Miller.
