Sweeping the Southeast: Lamar Miller

Lamar Miller is the #3 RB in the nation, and the 5-star game-breaker plays like it. While the majority of star's top teams are in the state of Florida, it's not a lock that he will stay in the Sunshine State. If he does decide to leave, you might be surprised who the lucky teams could be. We caught up with Miller to get the latest on the season and recruiting. 

Southeastern Sweep

The Southeast Region of Scout is sweeping the list of top uncommitted players.

In Focus: Lamar Miller

Lamar Miller is the #3 RB in the nation, and the 5-star game-breaker plays like it.  He is on the wish list of nearly every program in the country and has come up with an elite eight of finalists.  While the majority of star's top teams are in the state of FL, it's not a lock that he will stay in the Sunshine State.  If he does decide to leave, you might be surprised who the lucky teams could be.  We caught up with Miller to get the latest on the season and recruiting. 

The 5-Star Miller is a game-changer

"The season is going good.  We're 3-0 (Miller and his team had not played their Week 5 game at the time of this interview) and playing well right now," Miller said. 

It's a team game and you seem like a team player, but how are you doing?

"I have 49 carries 488 yards so far with 7 TDs," he said.  "And I have 1 catch for 24 yards."

What would you consider your strengths?

"Leadership, running the ball, breaking tackles and making people miss."

What about weaknesses?

"I have worked very hard on  becoming a better blocker."

Which schools are leading for your services?

I would say Miami, Florida, Florida State, UCF, Rutgers, LSU and West Virginia."

Do you have an idea of where you will go for your official visits?

"WVU, Rutgers and LSU will get an official, and the others will get an unofficial.

What factors will you take into consideration when making your decision? 

"I know that if I leave the state, distance not a factor," he shared.  "And I want to play early."

Do you see yourself leaving the state to play?

"There is a good chance I'll stay in the state."

What school did you grow up watching?

"I grew up following Miami and I think Coach Shannon is a great coach," he said.  "And I really feel like he is getting the program back in order."
