Miller Ready For Season

A prospect to watch is definitely Terrence Miller, the 6-4, 220-pound tight end from Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde, who stood out at the UnderArmour/ Combine last spring. He talks to us about his recruitment heading into his senior year...

Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde tight end/receiver Terrence Miller (6-4, 220), who was one of the standouts at the UnderArmour/ Combine in Los Angeles, is hoping that his pair of scholarship offers increases once the season starts.

"I still have just the Arizona and Utah offers," said Miller. "But there have been a lot of schools that say they want to see my senior film. I would say most of the schools look at me as an athlete. I could play receiver or tight end. I just want to make plays. I'm a versatile guy. Schools like me as a tight end, and they want to see me more outside catching a lot of passes but also making blocks."

The list of schools still scouting Miller is extensive, with Fresno State, Nevada, Cal, Syracuse and UTEP among the most interested and joined by Boise State, Washington and UCLA.

"Right now, I'd say my top schools are Arizona, Utah, Syracuse, Nevada and Boise State," said Miller. "I'd like to hear more from Cal and UCLA. I'll be taking an official visit to Arizona around December sometime, and I need to talk to Utah about an official visit."

Oregon State is the only school that has broached defense with Miller, envisioning him as a defensive end.

"I talk to them every once in a while and they said they would like to try me out as a defensive end," said Miller. "But I want to stay on offense."

Miller didn't camp much this summer, outside of the UnderArmour Combine and the Nike Camp in Los Angeles, instead choosing to work solely with the Rancho Verde passing game.

"We had a really good summer and we're ready for the season," said Miller. "I have some goals for the year too. I'd like at least 70 catches and 20+ touchdowns, but most importantly, I want to take my team to a championship."

And the Mustangs are plenty loaded for a title run, with Miller flanked by four-star running back Daniel Jenkins and three-star defenders Eric Martin at linebacker and Richard Spencer at safety.

"We always have more talent than most teams, but it seems the other teams always had more desire to win. That's changing."

Miller's junior year saw them make an earlier exit in the playoffs than expected, but he had a strong season, catching 48 passes for 800 yards and 12 touchdowns.

At the UnderArmour Combine, Miller was named to the all-combine team, after having arguably the second best day from the receivers/tight ends behind MVP Morrell Presley.

Academically, Miller said he will be a full qualifier.
