Commitment Tracker: Miller displaying versatility

How did Colorado's commitments fare on the field last weekend? has the rundown, as well as our weekly Commit Tracker Video Reel...

Desoto (Texas) High has not traditionally had many players go both ways, but Chris Miller's versatility allows him to excel at both receiver and cornerback for the Broncos.

I want to try to make all-area on both sides of the ball, and hopefully all-state honors, too,” Miller said of his individual senior goals.

In Denton's season opener on Friday, Miller got off to a good start by catching four passes, including a 25-yard touchdown reception, while also playing the role of lock-down corner. The Broncos enjoyed a 42-28 victory over Lake Dallas.

It felt good to get that first win in the books, especially with it being the first game of my senior year,” Miller said.

Denton has upcoming contests against Sanger, The Colony and Timber Creek, before a match-up against their cross-town rival Ryan, one of the top ranked teams in Texas.

Since verbally committing to the Buffaloes in late June, Miller has kept in daily communication with Colorado's coaches.

All their coaches are good people and I like their scheme. I also like all the other commits, so it makes me feel comfortable in my decision,” he said of the Buffs. “Their coaches do a good job of encouraging me. They think I can dominate on both sides of the ball this season.”

Miller is expected to play cornerback when he gets to Boulder. Although he has yet to schedule his official visit to Colorado, Miller said he hopes to take it the weekend of Oct. 15, when the Buffs host Arizona State.

A dozen other colleges have offered Miller, and he said “a few” other programs have continued to reach out to him since he committed to Colorado. He is unsure at this point if he will end up taking trips to other schools.

In that two touchdown victory for Denton, Polley helped clear the way for the Broncos to rack up over 300 rushing yards.
