Miller blown away by Clemson trip

Over the years the state of South Carolina has produced its share of talent at the defensive end position.

Gaffney High School defensive end Jaylen Miller, one of the state's top players at his position in the 2013 class, was in Clemson on Saturday.

"It was exciting. I've never seen something like that before," he told earlier this week.

It was Miller's first visit to Clemson since June, when he was in town for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

He was able to reacquaint himself with Tiger defensive end coach Marion Hobby.

"I met with my position coach and some of the other coaches," Miller said. "We went to the West End Zone, saw the Tiger Walk, were on the sidelines for warm-ups. After that, we sat with the prospects and watched the game."

The 6-foot-3, 255-pound junior said most of his conversation with Hobby was small talk.

"He asked me how much I weighed. He was asking if I still had my quickness. I told him how much I weighed and, yes, I still have my quickness."

Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott serves as the primary recruiter in Miller's area, but he's gotten to know Hobby very well.

"I got to know him at camp. He's a pretty straight-forward kind of guy. He's a good person to be around. From what I experienced at the camp, he was a great coach," Miller said.

Auburn, Tennessee, Florida State, Florida and Alabama have also expressed interest in Miller, though he has no offers.

So far this season, Miller has five sacks for undefeated and top-ranked Gaffney. Top Stories
