At 6-foot-7, 265 pounds, Kolton Miller of Roseville (Calif.) is the prototypical offensive lineman for the Tony Franklin offense, and just the kind of player that Zach Yenser covets – a long, lean, athletic lineman with good bend and flexibility.
On Saturday, Miller attended California's second Junior Day during the program's spring game, and formed a quick bond with Yenser, who is ready to extend a scholarship offer, contingent on some work in the classroom.
"They look at the ACT and SAT scores, and they determine it off of that," said Miller, who currently has a 2.5 GPA "So I'm taking that later in the fall. That will be what determines my offer."
Miller enjoyed spending some time with the coaching staff, and getting a look at the school itself before leaving for his brother's birthday.
"I really liked the campus. It's No 1 in the nation in education, and I really like that," Miller said. "I really like the offensive line coach. He talked to me about having a good frame and staying low and carrying the hands. I really liked the experience overall. My favorite part was getting on the field. That was really cool, and seeing some of the players. I talked with them pre-game, but I didn't get to catch the whole game because it was my brother's birthday, but just being on the field, that was really cool."
Miller currently has offers from Idaho, Washington State, San Diego State and Arizona, but his trip this weekend to Berkeley was an eye-opener.
"I love it. They did a presentation, they talked about the school. It wasn't too much pump-up; it was more informative," Miller said. "I really liked the offensive line coach. I liked the experience."
