The 6-foot-6 Miller is still considering all of his options from a list that consists of Louisville, Kentucky, Illinois, West Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Miami and a few others. At this point, Miller hasn't scheduled any official visits and probably won't until next month when college coaches can begin making in-home visits. "We haven't narrowed it, but we've talked about it," Miller said. "There's 8 or 9 schools still on the list that are recruiting him pretty hard. But we still haven't narrowed it down yet."
Asked which schools his son would likely visit this fall, Brian Miller, Darius' father, sounded uncertain.
"We don't even know yet," Miller said. "We're still talking about it. The (schools) that want to come in after Sept. 9, we're going to do home visits. We don't know which schools are coming in yet. Several (schools) have expressed that they want to come in for in-home visits. There are several schools that we expect will come in and take the in-home visit."
Miller said he expects Louisville coach Rick Pitino to make an in-home visit next month. Asked where the Cards stand in his son's recruitment, Miller said:
"They're in there, that's all I can say," Miller said. "They're recruiting him hard, which is a good thing."
Pitino tracked Miller hard on the summer circuit. So did Kentucky's Billy Gillespie. With offers from both Bluegrass powers, how much appeal is there for Miller to attend college next fall in state? "I don't know, not much," Miller said. "But he likes both schools."
So the plan for Miller appears to be this. Invite some college coaches into his home next month, listen to what they have to say and then take a few official visits.
"Darius wants to have everything narrowed down and sign with a school in November. That's the plan," Miller said.
