John Miller committed to Louisville last summer. But the three-star offensive lineman from Miami Central made an official visit to West Virginia last weekend and plans to visit Florida International this weekend.

"I took the trip to West Virginia, you know, just to take the trip and see what else is out there," Miller said. "West Virginia was okay, I liked it. It was something new compared to Miami. For the most part I liked it."

The big question: Is Miller still committed to Louisville?

"Of course," said Miller. "Louisville is a great program and I can see myself going there for the next four years."

Though Miller said he's leaning toward signing with Louisville next month, he still has some thinking to do before he makes it official on Feb. 2 for Charlie Strong's Cardinals.

"I would be surprised if I don't sign with Louisville," Miller said. "What I'm going to do is sit down with my parents and we're going to discuss everything. I haven't made my mind up yet. I think I'm going to be at Louisville."

Miller said he spoke with Clint Hurtt after he returned from his official visit to West Virginia, and the Louisville assistant is expected to visit with Miller at his school Wednesday.

"He just asked me how the trip was and did I like it," Miller said. "He asked if we were still okay, and I said, ‘yeah.' I think that he is supposed to come to school tomorrow to see me."

Miller's former teammate, Charles Gaines, enrolled at Louisville this semester and is adjusting to life as a Cardinal. Miller said he's spoken with Gaines about what's it's like at UofL.

"He told me he's enjoying it," Miller said. "He said they've been working hard in the weight room and he liked it there."

Besides Gaines, former Miami stars Teddy Bridgewater and Jermaine Reve also have enrolled early and are taking classes at Louisville.

"It's nice that I know a few guys up there from Miami," Miller said. "I won't say it's a huge factor, but it's a factor."

This weekend, Miller will make one final visit to FIU. "I want to check out an option closer to home," he said.
