As they tend to do with prospects getting a glimpse of them for the first time, the facilities in the Anderson Family Football Complex made an impression on Anthony Miller - and they weren't the only component to do so.
"It was nice," he said. "It was a good facility and everything, and I liked the coaches. There was a lot of people I knew there."
A 6-foot-5, 240-pound tight end from Overland Park (KS) Blue Valley Southwest, as a junior in 2011 Miller showed the versatility demanded by the position in today's game. Southwest frequently split him out as a wide receiver, and he proved to be a dangerous red-zone threat with his size, strength and outstanding hands.
At Kansas, Miller spoke with new tight ends coach Jeff Blasko, and was pleased by he heard - from the entire coaching staff, in fact.
"They sounded like they're headed in the right direction and back on track to winning games," he said. "And getting back to where they want to be in the next couple of years."
This weekend, Miller is at Tulsa for an unofficial visit, and next weekend he'll trip to Kansas State. After that, he has visits to Iowa State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State on the docket - with the possibility of a trip to Notre Dame as well.
