DE Corey Miller Profile

Byrnes standout defensive end Corey Miller was one of a handful of top prospects who camped at Clemson for three days this week.

And like just about everybody else, he came away impressed. Very impressed.

"I really liked it down there," he told CUTigers.com afterwards. "They treat you real well. I had a great time."

Clemson assistant coach Chris Rumph made a big impression on the star defender.

"I really like the defensive line coach Rumph. He is an awesome guy. He is really funny, but when it is time to get down to business it is time to get down to business. He really knows how to work you," said Miller.

How did the future Scout 100 prospect enjoy the camp overall?

DE Corey Miller (pictured above) and DL Brandon Willis were two of the more impressive performers at Tommy Bowden's Football Camp this week.
"The camp was great overall," he said. "I got to work on the drills that I know I need to work on as a defensive end. They reiterated a lot of things I have learned at Byrnes.

"Also I got to chill with [Dorman wide receiver] Charon Peake. We are rivals, but we had a good time. I got to meet Tyler Shatley and also Jeffrey Whitaker."

Did the visit to Clemson help the Tigers' chances for the 2010 standout?

"I mean most definitely," Miller said. "It was my first time really being at Clemson. I finally got to see what it is all about. It is an awesome place. It was the first time I got to see all of the facilities."

It won't be long before Corey and his teammate, Brandon Willis, return to Clemson.

"Coach Napier has invited us to come back in July. He wants to take some time and show us the new facilities they are working on," said Miller.

Another camp is on the schedule for later this week.

"Brandon and I are going to Georgia for the one day camp on Saturday. We will be heading to the national underclassman combine the next Saturday," said Miller.

Does the Byrnes star defensive duo plan to play together in college?

"As of right now it is too early to tell. We are going to focus on the next two years at Byrnes. We want to continue to dominate from both sides of the defensive line," he said.
