JC offensive lineman to visit Louisville

Even though he's flown a bit under-the-radar with the recruiting services, some BCS schools have taken notice of the skills that Grossmont OT Charles Millebah (6-5, 300) possesses and he's already set up a visit to check out a Big East school that could be very close to offering.

"I'm going to Louisville next weekend," Charles Millenbah told JCFootball.com. "They basically said they wanted to get me on campus and that there is a very good chance they would offer me when I get there.

"I really like their school a lot and their program has been excellent the past couple of years. Their o-line coach (Brent Myers) and coach (Steve) Kragthorpe have both talked to me and they both said they like what I bring to the table as far as my athleticism and intensity."

Baylor is Millenbah's only offer at this point, but other schools taking the time to get in touch with him have been Texas A&M, Washington State and Arizona State.

"All those schools are pretty much even for me," Millenbah said. "I want to play big time football and use my skills to the best of my abilities and I want to play at the highest level I can.

"I just like to hurt people and be really aggressive and mash people into the ground. I want them to feel sorry for themselves and not want to get back in there against me. I love that because you can just see it in their eyes and the way they carry themselves. You know they're done."

Millenbah signed with Saginaw Valley State in Michigan after he finished his prep career at La Jolla High School in San Diego. After redshirting his freshman year, he came back home to help take care of his ailing father who has since recovered from a long illness.

"Family is number one for me, no question," Millenbah said. "My dad and my family needed me to come back, so I did and I'm very happy I did because he's better and he gets to see me play and hopefully, he'll get to see me play some more football on T.V. after this year."

Millenbah isn't just a physical and intense player on the field. He's also getting it done in the weight room as well.

"I repped 415 eight times the other day on the bench and I'm working really hard on my lower body," Millenbah said. "I max out on the squat at 570, but I want to push that up over the 600 pound mark pretty soon.

"The last time they timed me in the forty, I ran a 4.9 so I can get out and pull and get on guys at the second level as well."

Even with all of his skills, Millenbah isn't satisfied with everything he does.

"I have pretty good footwork, but at the next level I need to be even better in that area because of how quick the ends are," Millenbah said. "I need to be able to handle those guys and that's all about footwork and knowing how to move to counter their moves."

Millenbah will be done with his AA degree in December and will have two years to play two wherever he decides to enroll.

We'll have more from him shortly after his visit to Louisville.
