* Manning star RB Josh Miller remains firm with his verbal commitment to Clemson, but this week, he's focused on his last game as a high school athlete. "It has been great this week," said Miller. "I love it. I can't wait until Saturday for the game. I am meeting new people. Seeing how many great athletes are out there. That's the great thing about it."

* Miller will see some time on both sides of the ball on Saturday. One of the defensive coaches for the South Carolina squad told that they had experimented with Miller at linebacker. "We stuck him over there for a few plays. He was impressive. We didn't go over anything with him, and he was out there going from sideline to sideline." Would Miller himself like to see some time at linebacker? "They told me I might see some time over there. It would be a good thing if I do. If not then I'll just play offense like I am suppose to play," said the future Tiger.

* Miller and all of his future Clemson teammates have been working hard to convince other players to join them next year. One of the main targets has been Mike Davis and three Shrine Bowl teammates told that they believe Davis will be a Tiger. "Yeah we are trying. We are trying hard to convince Mike Davis. I think we may have him. I'm working hard on him, that's for sure," said Miller.

* The focus of this week for the fans are the practices and the game Saturday, but the players get much more out of these seven days. The most important memory from this week for many will be the Sunday visit to the Children's Hospital.

"It was a great experience," said Miller. "I really didn't expect to see what I saw. The way everyone treated us and the way we treated the kids. That was the greatest thing about it. To see how the kid's eyes brightened when we met with them and signed autographs. That was the best part of the week for me." Top Stories
