2011 Star Quarterback to Visit UF

Huber Heights (OH) Wayne HS is home to one of the more dynamic quarterback prospects in the class of 2011. Braxton Miller is already well known in the Midwest even after just his sophomore year in high school. Miller brings a strong arm and quick feet to the table and says that he is wide open in his recruitment. One of the places he plans to visit is the University of Florida.

You can watch just a little bit of video and tell that Braxton Miller is an exceptional quarterback. What separates him from the rest, at such a young age, is his ability to read defenses and follow his reads on any play. He does this with both the mental prowess of game study and with his ability to stay in a position to make a play.

Miller likes the wide open game of the spread offense, but believes he can be successful in any offense.

"I like the spread, but it doesn't matter," Miller said about what kind of offense he prefers to be a part of in college. "I just want an offense that passes the ball a lot. I am a shotgun quarterback that can throw the ball. I am best in passing and I can really read coverages well."

Miller prides himself in being a guy that keeps things even tempered. The self described Miami Hurricane and Reggie Bush fan, Miller is always looking to have a good time in whatever he does.

"I like to have fun," he said. "I just like to get along with everyone and have a good time."

Miller is no stranger to college football coaches. He already has a stunning 32 offers before his junior season even starts. The last two offers came from teams that have won the last two national championships.

"The last two offers were from Florida and Alabama and they came this week," Miller said. "But I don't have any favorites right now."

Depending on how the Gators finish the 2010 class, they may really need two quarterbacks in the 2011 class. They evidently have put a lot of stock into what Miller has to offer.

"Florida offered me on Monday," Miller said. "I got it in the mail and I talked to (quarterback) Coach Loeffler. He likes my stance and how I move. He likes my throwing ability and arm strength. He also likes my running ability."

At 6-3.5 and 199 pounds and only in the 11th grade, Miller is already a big quarterback prospect that has room to grow. His attributes are made for Florida's offensive attack. He understands that and has decided he will make a visit to see the Gators this spring.

"I am going to come down there in April for the Spring game," Miller said. "I talked to Coach Loeffler about that."

"I like Florida, I liked them all year and how they run the offense. I want to see the facilities and everything and just go down there and check it out."

He should be talking to Gator head coach Urban Meyer about what he likes with Florida.

"I am supposed to talk to Coach Meyer sometime soon, because I just got my official letter today," he said.

Miller also said that his family does not care where the college road takes him...distance will not be a factor.

"They don't care where I go or how far away," he said about his parents. "They just want me to be happy."
