DE Jaylen Miller Profile
Gaffney High School junior Jaylen Miller worked out with both defensive ends coach Marion Hobby and defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks while at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was hard, but it was nice. I like a challenge. I like the coaches there, too. It was good to get over there," Miller told CUTigers.com on Saturday, after picking up the Top Underclassman award at the MVP Camp.
Instead of playing inside, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound prospect would prefer to come off the edge at the college level.
"I'm looking at myself as an end," he said. "I'm determined to play end. If I've got to drop some pounds, I will."
Miller first visited Clemson earlier in the year for Junior Day and a basketball game. It's the only college campus that he's seen so far.
"The campus is nice. It's huge. I like the atmosphere," he said. "Everything is Clemson. Everything is a Tiger. Everything has a paw on it. It's nice. It's kind of hard to explain, but I like it."
Though he currently claims no offers, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, N.C. State and Tennessee are also expressing interest.
Miller doesn't plan to get heavily involved with the recruiting process until his junior year. No one school holds favor over the other, though there is one that has already made a good impression.
"It's too early for me to tell, but I like what I've seen at Clemson. I would say, after this year, I should be close to making my mind," Miller said.
As a sophomore, he recorded seven sacks.
