Miller excited about Louisville visit

Baltimore (MD) Dunbar star Horace Miller is currently committed to UNLV. But the talented linebacker wants to check out one more option before signing day – an official visit to Louisville this weekend.

Miller was scheduled to visit UofL last weekend but a conflict forced him to reschedule his trip for this coming weekend. Miller will take his SAT on Saturday morning then head to Louisville to check out the Cards.

"I had some complications with my parents work schedules and I want them to come visit the campus with me," Miller said. "I'm actually going this Saturday. I'll take my SAT then I'll be on the plane ready to go to Louisville."

Miller's connection to the Cardinals is new assistant coach Larry Slade, who got to know Miller when he attended Tennessee's football camp last summer. Slade was an assistant at Tennessee under Phil Fulmer for several years.

"I already knew Coach Slade and he came up to the school a couple of weeks ago and we talked," said Miller. "It was cool, he never pressured me about anything. He knew I was already committed to UNLV and all he told me was to think about it (visiting). I talked with the coaches at UNLV and it doesn't hurt to visit Louisville and see what could be."

Louisville recently sent Miller a scholarship offer.

"Either way if I go to Louisville or UNLV I'll still get a great education and achieve a lot in life and football," Miller said. "Louisville wants me as an outside linebacker and UNLV wants me to play both end and outside linebacker. I'm totally done with recruiting after this visit. Then I'll do some thinking and make a decision."

Miller talked to Slade Monday about the arrangements for his official visit this weekend. "(Slade) and Coach Brent Guy are coming to visit me and my family on Thursday and then I believe the head coach is coming to visit me next week," Miller said.
