CB Zach Miller Profile

Zach Miller, cornerback from Duncan-Byrnes, S.C., is one of several FBS prospects from the powerhouse program.

Miller has five early favorites and is looking to visit several schools this spring.

"I don't have any offers right now," he said. "North Carolina has been talking to me a lot, but I really need to take my ACT and SAT. I am planning on taking both in the spring.

"Wake Forest, Clemson, Duke, Colorado, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee have all been showing a lot of interest in me. I missed South Carolina's Junior Day. I was supposed to go somewhere this weekend, but we have our football banquet."

Miller's top five includes North Carolina, Clemson, Tennessee, Wake Forest and South Carolina.

North Carolina: "It seems like it would be a good school. I can't wait to take the visit. They make me feel like it's the place to go."

Clemson: "I went down there to a basketball game with Brandon Willis, Marcus Lattimore and Corey Miller. They made me feel welcomed. They just signed Tajh Boyd. He is a real cool guy."

Wake Forest: "They send me a lot of stuff. I haven't gotten to see what they are all about, but hope to check them out real soon."

South Carolina: "They seem to be a real good school to go to. It should be a good school to check out in the spring."

Tennessee: "Coach Kiffin is real cool. I have talked to him on the phone. He seems like a real cool guy. It just seems like a good school to attend."

The 5-foot-11, 167-pound prospect recorded 55 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and 10 interceptions in 2008. He was named All-Region for the season performance.

"One of my main strengths, coaches say, is my speed and covering ability," Miller said. "I am trying to work on breaking back to the ball."

Miller knows what he is seeking once the scholarship offers become available.

"I am looking for a good coaching staff," he said. "I want to see what the school is about, what recruits they have coming in." Top Stories
