Five-star quarterback Braxton Miller now has a "definite" interest in the University of Kentucky and plans to watch the Wildcats play this season. The 6-1, 175-pound junior, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, made the trip from Huber Heights, Ohio, Sunday to Lexington to attend the Score6 Camp for quarterbacks and receivers on the UK campus conducted by former Kentucky quarterback Ryan Hockman.

"It was definitely worth my time to come. I really enjoyed it," Miller said after he left the camp to return home. "I really didn't get a chance to look at the facilities, but I did look around some and liked what I saw.

"I could certainly see Kentucky in the picture with me. I have not thought about narrowing my list down or anything like that yet, but Kentucky plays in the SEC against great competition. I have not heard all that much about them, but I'm going to look and visit.

Scout.com recruiting analyst Dave Berk says that even though Miller missed the end of last season due to an injury, he's a "national five-star recruit" who will get only better.

"I like his overall athletic ability. He can run, throw or whatever he needs to do," Berk said. "He'll have all the big name schools after him. He already has over 10 offers from Florida to Michigan to Ohio State. North Carolina just offered him. Cincinnati offered him as a freshman. That's how good he is."

Miller, who was the camp MVP Sunday, plans to attend the Elite 11 camp this summer as well as the Urban Meyer Passing Camp and Ohio State camp. He only laughed when asked if rumors that he could throw the football 70 yards were true. "That is the truth. I have just always been able to throw like that since middle school. But I can also adjust my throws on short routes," he said. "I need to work on reading defenses better and they worked with me today on extending my hips and lowering my shoulder. Just some mechanical things that will make me better."
