So when Coach Brooks and his staff made the call, Aaron Miller was more then willing to help.
"It happened really fast," Miller told Inside Kentucky. "I went from maybe not coming here till later to having a chance to play."
"It's possible that I could play this year," Miller said. "I am just looking forward to seeing how it all plays out on the practice field. You gotta come in thinking that you got a shot to play."
The Grayson County product has experienced plenty of ups and downs since he committed to UK last summer.
"The coaching staff being so experienced helps things progress a little easier."
"I knew they would do the best thing for me."
Miller looked a lot bigger and stronger since his last appearence in high school. According to Miller, he is now 290 pounds and in the best shape of his life. That can be creditted to the leadership of the many seniors, Miller said.
"Occasionally the offensive line would come out and work the plays this summer. We ran the running plays and just tried to get some stuff done."
As far as his expecations are concerned, Miller has his head on straight.
"My expectations are to try and do everything right. If I dont' get to play, then someone else will, which means they are better then me and I will have to work harder."
