Kragthorpe seals deal with Josh Miller

Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe met with Palatka, Florida standout Josh Miller Wednesday night, and secured a verbal commitment from the Florida Times-Union Super 24 member.

Josh Miller was supposed to visit Miami this weekend. Instead, he decided to end his recruitment and verbally commit to Louisville.

According to a report in the Palatka Daily News, Miller chose the Cardinals after visiting with new U of L coach Steve Kragthorpe and assistant Jeff Brohm Wednesday night.

"When I was in Louisville, I made up my mind that was the place I wanted to be. Since coach (Bob) Petrino left (to take over the Atlanta Falcons), coach (Jeff) Brohm took over my recruiting and stressed that they wanted me and I was the No. 1 guy they were recruiting," Miller told the Palatka Daily News.

A two-star prospect, the 6-3, 185-pound Miller played quarterback Palatka High School, though the Cardinals recruited him as a wide receiver.

Miller, a third team All-State selection and a member of the Florida Times-Union Super 24 team, rushed for 850 yards and passed for more than 500 yards last season.

Miller had offers from the Hurricanes, South Florida, Bowling Green and Central Florida.
