Louisville coach stops by Boyle County

An assistant from Louisville made a stop in Eastern Kentucky recently to pick up video on one of Boyle County High Schools talented juniors. Who is Louisville interested in? InsideTheVille.com has the latest.

One of the Bluegrass State's top linebacker prospects, Boyle County's Josh Miller has seen college programs such as Auburn, Boston College, Kentucky, Louisville and Tennessee take notice.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Miller kept busy this spring making unofficial visits to a few of those expressing early interest.

"I went to Kentucky's junior day and I went Louisville's junior day," he said on Thursday. "I also went to Auburn for their spring game and Tennessee's junior day."

As a junior Miller totaled 86 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 interceptions and a forced fumble from the outside linebacker position, while also recording 942 yards and 11 touchdowns on the offensive side of the ball.

"I never came off the field," said Miller, who became a full-time linebacker last fall. "I feel like as time goes by that linebacker is the position that I'll play in college."

"I felt like I was getting better each game last year," he continued. "I'm getting more and more comfortable playing linebacker."

It's only a matter of time until Miller collects his first scholarship offer as many schools continue to evaluate his film.

"One of Louisville's coaches came by this morning to get some of my film from Coach Pardue," he said.

On Wednesday Miller was named as a member of the preseason all-star list, The Tremendous 26.

"It feels great," he said of the honor. "It was a complete surprise to me because I didn't know anything about it."

Miller will have an opportunity to further improve his stock when he attends the Scout.com All-American combine at Louisville on May 20.
