Huskers maneuvering for Miller

The Huskers are currently outside the top six for this talented receiver from Dallas. However, if Nebraska could get a visit he admits it's possible that they could move onto his list.

Adrian Miller, who goes by A.D. Miller, from Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne has some visits coming up in July. The 6-foot-3 and 190-pound wide receiver has already been to see three Big Ten schools.

"I have trips planned for Miami and for Arizona State," Miller said. "I don't have any dates yet, but they will be some time in July.

"I have been to Illinois twice, Michigan and Ohio State. The Big Ten is a great conference and I think that I really fit in their offenses."

If you are looking for a player that can do it all then Miller is your guy. The play-making receiver goes deep, across the middle and can work the screen game.

"I am able to go deep, go get the ball at the highest point, I go across the middle and even run screens. I block pretty good too. I can run a guy off or stalk block."

Miller says that his college decision will center mainly around qualities of the football program. He is looking at the coaches, the players and the opportunity to play early.

"I am looking for a great coaching staff, an offense that passes the ball, a change to play early as a freshman and get along with everyone on the team."

There are six schools standing out for Miller at the moment. They aren't necessarily in any order, but it seems that Miller will likely choose from this list before the start of his senior year.

"I have a top six," Miller said. "It's Illinois, Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, Illinois and Kansas in no particular order. I plan on making a decision by the end of the summer and would like to visit all of the schools before I decide."

Despite not making the early cut the Nebraska staff are still giving chase to Miller. The Huskers have two primary recruiting coaches for Miller and he said that if he could visit Lincoln it's possible the Huskers could get onto his list.

"Coach Tim Beck and Coach Ron Brown have been recruiting me from Nebraska. Coach Tim Beck actually messaged me on Twitter and asked me to call him back.

"Nebraska could get in my top six, any school could. It really just matters if I can get up there for a visit."
