Miller discusses switch to LSU

LSU fans and coaches received a pleasant surprise last week when former Texas A&M commitment Ryan Miller switched his allegiance to Nick Saban and the Tigers.<br><br>The 6-foot-6, 310-pound center from Lake Charles-Barbe said the decision to come on board with LSU wasn't hard, but informing the Aggie coaching staff was.

"It was really difficult calling the A&M staff," Miller told Tiger Rag. "It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. They were upset."

Miller, whose father is a former Aggie, said it was just a gut feeling that sparked the change.

"I've been an Aggie fan all my life, but we've been going to games and lately I just felt like they didn't have it anymore," Miller says.

"I went to some LSU games and really enjoyed it," he says. "LSU had always talked to me and never put any pressure on me. They never said anything negative (about A&M) and it just felt right. They (LSU coaches) were in shock because they didn't think I would do it."

With a 345-pound bench press, Miller is the top center in Louisiana and one of the Southeast's top prospects. He's played both guard and center but says he feels more comfortable at center with the ball in his hands. He's fully academically qualified to play as a freshman.
