"I committed to Clemson today," Miller told earlier this afternoon. "I'm just glad to get it over with."

Miller, who represents the 10th verbal commitment in the 2005 recruiting class, is the state's #1 linebacker prospect as rated by

Last season Miller was focused on playing running back, but he stepped in to play both ways late in the year. This season, and most likely in college, Miller will become a fulltime linebacker.

"I think it's going to be a great experience because I loved it last year. I only got to play a couple games, and I think I will get even more playing time at linebacker this year," Miller said in an interview earlier this week.

The rising senior chose the Tigers over Florida State, but he also had scholarship offers from Maryland, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

After travelling to Clemson earlier this year for a one-day camp, the 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect said, "It was a lifetime experience. I really enjoyed my time with the coaches. They made me feel like I was welcome. I also like the environment of the school. Clemson is somewhere that I think I could play for a couple of years."

Miller also said recently, "I like the coaches at Clemson. They make me feel at home. It's like I'm just with all my old high school coaches. I know I can also get a good education at Clemson and they have my major (engineering)."
