5-star RB enjoys camp experience

Lamar Miller is rated as the No. 1 running back prospect in the state of Florida by Scout.com and the Miami (Killian) standout recently participated in his first summer camp this year. He talked about that experience, his summer plans, the recruiting process, and more in this update.

"On Sunday I went out to UM and did some drills at their camp," Lamar Miller said. "I just wanted to go out, do a couple drills, have a little fun. I didn't stay for the whole camp."

Miller, 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, talked more about the experience he had working with Miami running backs coach Tommie Robinson.

"I like him a lot," he said. "He knows what he's doing. He knows the game really well. I learned a couple new things and drills from him and that was good. It was good getting out and seeing the coaches again."

The five-star running back prospect, as rated by Scout.com, said that was his first camp experience of the summer and he plans on doing one more.

"I'm trying to get back up to Friday Night Lights at Florida," he said. "It's next month. I went up last year and had a good time and I'm trying to go back."

Miller continues to get heavily recruited on a national level. He was asked for an updated list of favorites.

"I'm still considering a bunch of schools," he said. "Miami, West Virginia, Florida, Clemson, Tennessee, Florida State, USF, UCF, Rutgers, those are some of them."

Now that the spring evaluation period has come and gone and Miller had a chance to talk to coaches from all those schools, which ones stand out to him?

"Miami and West Virginia are at the top because they're the ones recruiting me the hardest right now," he said. "I haven't watched West Virginia too much but when I did catch some of their games last year I noticed how they use the running backs a lot in their offense. UM is right up the street and I like how they've always used the running backs."

The talented running back prospect talked about what he'll be looking for in a school when it comes time to make a decision.

"I'll be looking at the graduation rates, where I feel most comfortable, and the type of offense they run," he said. "I wanna play in an offense that uses the I-formation and things like that."

Being from Miami, Miller was asked what impact Miami having a commitment from a five-star running back (Bryce Brown) already might have on his final decision.

"That don't matter," he said. "I feel like I'm the best running back in the nation and competition always makes people better."
