Fresh off an offer from Notre Dame, Chris Miller had the opportunity to take in all things CU last weekend. The Denton, Texas, product came away pleased with the rise and he developed budding relationships with CU’s commits and uncommitted targets.
“It was good. I got to watch practice, hang out with the coaches and everybody. It was really fun, got to be with the players and all that,” Miller told BuffStampede.com.
“I was with the DBs, Nick Fisher and Isaiah Oliver. I got to hang out with Steven Montez, players like that. … I feel good about it, I think it’s going to be fun.”
Miller caught up with all of CU’s coaches on his visit. The Texas athlete hit it off with other members of the 2017 class and prospects the Buffs are hoping they can land.
“They’re excited for me to come there. They just can’t wait,” Miller said on CU’s coaches.
“Most of [the recruits] I’ve already met, but I got to meet some guys who are getting recruited by Colorado.”
Three-star Bishop Dunne (Dallas) 2017 defensive tackle Damion Daniels is not the easiest recruit to get on the phone. Per our inside informant – Chris Miller – the Buffs have a strong shot at landing the talented Texas tackle. Alliteration.
“Yeah, the defensive tackle from Bishop Dunne, I think he had a pretty good time, Damion [Daniels],” Miller said on Texas targets CU commits are recruiting, social media and the like.
The big question on Buffs fans’ minds is likely “will the three-star Miller look at other colleges before officially signing with CU.” TBD: To be determined.
“Not right now,” Miller said when asked if he has visits lined up.
“Nah, I’m not sure yet,” he continued when asked if he’d like to take other officials.
While the Fighting Irish struggled to a 4-8 clip in 2016, the offer from Notre Dame still holds weight. We’re talking all-time great college football programs.
“It felt pretty good to get a big offer like that,” Miller said on the nod from the Irish.
Another question CU fans are likely ruminating on is “will the Buffs use Miller on offense?” The answer to that one is “not at the present time.”
“Not much,” Miller said when asked if CU has spoken to him about playing receiver, a position he thrived at in high school.
“Probably special teams. Not really [much special teams playing time this season], most teams don’t kick to me so coaches didn’t put me out there.”
Miller and fellow CU pledge slash high school teammate Grant Polley helped the Denton Broncos to a 9-2 record in 2016. Miller stood out on both sides of the ball.
“It went pretty good. I got Utility Player of the Year and first-team all-district for receiver and corner,” he said of his senior year.
Miller hears from Buffs coaches a “good amount” with safeties coach Charles Clark as the main point of contact. The three-star athlete hit it off with another three-star athlete – Morrell Osling – during the official to CU.
“I met him in the summer when he first committed. This was my second time meeting him. I feel like he might be my roommate when I go up there,” Miller said on Osling.
With a recent UCLA offer for Osling, big programs are taking notice of Colorado's 2017 committed athletes (corners). Now it's time to hold on, only 47 days to Feb. 1, 2017, AKA Signing Day.
