BALTIMORE, Md. -- Senior defensive tackle B'Ahmad Miller recently transferred from Eastern Christian (Elkton, Md.) to St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, Md.) and is in the process of adjusting to his new school. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder said he’s easily taken to the new coaching staff and his new surroundings, but the Chester, Pa., native is still wadding through the recruiting process as his final high school season is about to begin.
“I know I have offers from Maryland, Marshall, Illinois, Pitt, Buffalo and Temple, but I’m still getting my mail straight with having transferred, so I’ve got to see what official, written offers I really do have,” Miller said. “I know I do have a written one from Temple, and I’m pretty sure I have Maryland too. I’m seeing about the rest. I’ve got to go through all that with my parents and coaches.”
Coincidentally enough, the two programs Miller believes he has official scholarships from are the only ones he’s been able to visit this offseason. He attended camps at Temple and Maryland back in June, taking a liking to both.
“Maryland was great. I love that school,” Miller said. “I met Coach [Mike] London and he’s a great guy and Coach [D.J.] Durkin is wonderful. Coach London has a terrific resume and is like a mentor to his players. And Coach Durkin, his resume speaks for itself too. I can’t say enough about those guys. They’re wonderful.”
Miller said he’s maintained contact with London since the June camp. He hasn’t been able to return to College Park, Md., for a visit, but would like to in short order.
“The Maryland coaches are telling me to come be part of the family,” Miller said. “They really like me, and Coach London tells me he wants me up there. It’s a great school, and I love them up there. They keep it real with me and it’s just great people.”
The Pennsylvania native had similar comments in regards to Temple. He said the Owls’ staff is pushing for him, and he’s inclined to head back to the Philly school as well.
“Temple is a place I liked a lot,” Miller said. “I mean, I keep in contact with all the schools that have offered me, but, yeah, you could say Temple’s been on me a good bit. I liked it up there.”
Miller said he plans to sit down with his parents and formulate a visit schedule in the next week or so. He said he wants to gauge which programs truly want him and then go from there.
“My plan is to be committed after my first couple games or so,” Miller said. “It’s going to be soon. I just have to see where I stand with a couple places, but I have a pretty good idea.”
