The Blue Springs (MO) High School product runs track. He works out. He focuses on preparing for his final season as a BSHS Wildcat in a few months. He keeps in frequent contact with the Kansas coaches.
One thing he doesn't think about anymore, however, is his recruiting.
With offers from the likes of Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Louisville
and Kansas State in addition to Kansas, Miller opted to put an end to
his recruitment in early March when he pulled the trigger for Head
Coach Turner Gill and the Kansas Jayhawks.
Since then, he's grown increasingly familiar with the program,
particularly running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Reggie
They've already had the discussions on how he'll fit in to the Kansas
offense, said Miller, who rushed for almost 2,800 yards as a junior in
2009. So when he made plans to bring his mom and grandmother with him
to Lawrence for the annual Spring Game on Saturday, the on-the-field
action wasn't the biggest reason for his excitement.
"The game was pretty good but the best part was just seeing everybody
again and getting to talk to the coaches a little more," Miller
Despite the fact that he's been to campus on multiple unofficial visits
since the first of the year, it's an experience that never loses its
"I really wouldn't say it's different," he explained, when asked if the
feeling was different for him now that he's a Kansas commit. "Even when
I go up there I still see some new things about the school I didn't
know. It's kind of a new experience every time I go up there."
The football season is still approximately four months away, but that's
not keeping the 2009 Missouri Gatorade Player of the Year off the
gridiron. Recently, Miller tripped to Texas Christian University in
Fort Worth for a Nike Training Camp event. While there, he participated
in drills alongside some of the top running backs in the region –
including Scout.com five-star prospect Herschel Sims – and more than
held his own.
While in Fort Worth, Miller made contact with other KU recruits, and
was briefly reunited with a handful of them on Saturday.
"I was definitely happy about how I did down there," he said. "I met a
lot of guys down there, and I saw a few of them at the Spring Game, so
it was good to see them."
Next up for Miller on the camp circuit? The Midwest Elite Combine May 1
in Kansas City and the Super Jayhawk Camp later in the summer.
