OL To Visit UM This Week

Sarasota (Fla.) Riverview standout offensive lineman Drew Miller took a trip to Gainesville last weekend to participate in their one-day senior camp.

"It was fun," Miller said. "I got a chance to compete with other offensive linemen like Jim Tartt. There were some other good players there too."

Miller had a chance to meet with the Florida coaches following the camp.

"After the camp I got to talk to Coach Wickline and Coach Zook," he said. "They had already offered me so basically they were glad I came to camp because it gave me a chance to see more of how they do things."

Miller's already been to the Florida campus several times and he'll be taking an unofficial visit to Miami later this week.

"On Wednesday morning I'm going to Miami," he said. "I had a chance to talk to Coach Kehoe this morning and we set it up. He's going to show me around. I'll get a chance to meet Coach Coker and some of the players. Coach Kehoe wants me to see how hard they work. Miami offered me in the spring. I'm looking forward to that because Miami's one of my top two choices right now."

Miller's top two consists of the Hurricanes and Gators. He talked about the two.

"They're pretty much even right now," he said. "They both have real good offensive line coaches and they both have great programs. I'll be able to sit down and compare what's different about them after my visit to Miami."

One advantage that's working in the favor of the Gators right now is the fact that Miller's parents favor Florida.

"My parents really like Zook and that's where they want me to go," he said. "That's fine. They'll meet Coach Coker and they know it's my decision."

The talented lineman said he's in no hurry to make a final decision.

"I'm real open right now," he said. "There's still a long way to go. I may need to take some official visits too. I'm not sure, I might decide before the season or I might not. There are two out of state schools, Tennessee and Georgia, that I still want to check out too but I'll probably stay in Florida."

Miller, who is fully qualified with a 1000 on the SAT score, was personally evaluated by Kehoe at UM's summer camp last summer in addition to his spring jamboree this past May.
