Florida-Based Inside Linebacker, James Miller, Earns a 'Dream' Scholarship Offer From the LSU Tigers

James Miller, a fast-rising inside linebacker residing in the Tampa Bay area, just hit the jackpot by earning a "dream" scholarship offer, so has a leader emerged in his recruitment?

Ed Orgeron and the LSU Tigers have found no reason to wait and dished out the initial SEC scholarship offer to Seffner (Fla.) Armwood inside linebacker, James Miller, who piled up 69 tackles (43 solo), 15 tackles for loss, three sacks and an interception during his breakout junior campaign with the Hawks.

Tagged as a three-star prospect on Scout, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Miller is equipped with additional scholarship offers from the likes of OregonIowaIndianaUCF and South Florida.

"This is a dream offer," Miller told Scout. "I like LSU because it's loud and they're one of the best in college football. I used to dream of playing there.

"It doesn't get bigger than LSU."

This fast-rising defender has yet to officially chop it up with the LSU coaching staff, but plans to pack his bags and journey up to Baton Rouge sooner rather than later.

"My coaches talked to them, but I'm trying to set (something) up to go up there soon," Miller said. "I'm setting up a visit as we speak; I will tell you which days soon."

With all that being said, has a front-runner emerged in Miller's recruitment?

"I don't have a top three list or nothing, but right now, LSU is at the top," Miller replied.

Miller is an up-and-coming prospects that's really starting to creep up recruiting big boards. His physical characteristics are obvious at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, but it's Miller's ability to fill the gaps and wreak havoc from sideline to sideline that absorbs your attention.

Productive defender and a name you consistently hear over the loud speaker. He can continue to focus on playing more under control, but his relentlessness is what typically puts him over the top. Miller also provides that pop when making initial contact with the ball carrier.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
