Darrian Miller, the 2009 Missouri Gatorade Player of the Year and first player to commit to Turner Gill's first full recruiting class at the University of Kansas, has decided to re-open his recruitment.
Though he remains comfortable with much of what attracted him to KU in
the first place – including Gill and his lead recruiter, running backs
coach Reggie Mitchell – the Blue Springs (MO) High School standout said
he wanted to take some time to make sure his initial decision was the
"When I really started thinking about it, me and my mom kind of
questioned how I would fit in to Kansas' system, and what direction
they're moving and what not," Miller explained.
"I think that's what this year is going to be used for," he added.
"Check them out and see some schools."
Miller spoke to both coaches Tuesday afternoon, informing them of his
decision. He said both seemed understanding, and informed him they
would continue to recruit him as hard as ever. In turn, Miller said he
understood that the staff had every right to begin pursuing other
targets at running back.
Though he is now keeping an open mind to any school who would wish to
get involved, he said the Jayhawks are still in the mix.
"Kansas is definitely still in the running," Miller said. "(The
decision to decommit) was just more of, than anything, just seeing if
it was the right fit for me or if there was any school I felt just the
same or better about."
In addition to the one from Kansas, Miller holds scholarship offers
from Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and a handful of others. He originally
committed to the Jayhawks in early March.
