Kentucky's hot streak in recruiting is coming to a head this weekend. The Wildcats have reeled in one of the top linemen in the state for the 2011 class.

Darrian Miller of Bryan Station (Ky.) has decided to become a Wildcat. Miller could be the best lineman on either side of the ball in the state as a senior.

KSR spoke with his high school coach last week about the prospect.

"He has no weaknesses," said coach Oliver Lucas. "He's awesome. He blocks two and three people every play. He's always moving. His motor is on high alert always," Lucas continued.

As a junior, it became apparent that Miller would be a highly regarded prospect with his size, strength and athleticism, not to mention his work ethic. "He got better (as a junior)," Lucas said. "He didn't take a play off. He didn't rest on his laurels. He's steadily improved," he continued. "We found out, also, that he's a great defensive player. We put him in on goal line and other defensive packages. He's been a great defensive lineman as well. He's got so much explosiveness," Lucas finished.

"He's playing tackle, but he can play anywhere on the line. He blocks well in space. There's nothing weak about the kid," said Lucas.

KSR will bring further information on this breaking story.
