Brent Pease (Assistant Head Coach) did an outstanding job recruiting Miller. The two made an instant connection. "Me and Coach Pease are real similar people," he stated. "We like the outdoors, we're quiet, but we still get it done. We hit it off right when we spoke." Matt called both Brent Pease and Chris Petersen on Christmas Day to let them know the good news. "I just told Coach Pease I wanted to be a Bronco. Coach Pete said I made his day when I spoke to him on Christmas."
Matt took an official visit to Boise State in early December as he watched the Broncos cap off yet another undefeated season with a solid win over New Mexico State. The high flying offense at Boise State grabbed his attention. "The offense really interested me," he said. "They spread it around and throw it all over the place. I can learn from their great WRs and it'll be an easy transition for me having Kellen (Moore) since he always puts it in the right spot."
Miller (6'3, 210, 4.55) and his teammates at Capital have dominated the 2A Division in Montana for the past three years. They brought three state championships home to Helena, but came up just a bit short this past season. The future Bronco certainly brings a winning mentality with him to Boise. "I felt like I could be the happiest and most successful on the football field there too," he said. "Both of my parents love the coaches there and I feel it's a great fit for me. I'm happy I made my decision."
The standout ATH expects to arrive in Boise this summer in excellent condition. "I'm doing basketball so I'll be in pretty good shape with that," Miller said. "I'll run track in the spring and I'll head down to Boise once summer starts."
