Miller Interested in Michigan, Wants to Visit

Keller (Texas) High 2016 defensive end Houston Miller talks Michigan interest, potential visit to U-M, what an offer would mean and more.

Keller (Texas) High 2016 defensive end Houston Miller has been receiving interest in Michigan since the beginning of his junior season.

However, just recently Michigan’s interest in the three-star DE ramped up when U-M coaches Chris Patridge and Greg Mattison made contact with the Lone Star state standout. And doing so, have caused a ramped up interest from Miller into the Wolverines.

“Michigan has always been a strong program,” Miller said. “There is nothing you can really you cannot like about Michigan. They have a lot of attributes. Their overall coaching staff – especially Coach Jim Harbaugh having great impact on the football program.”

While Michigan hasn’t made an offer, Miller did admit it an offer would go a long way into his recruitment.

“If they did offer -- that would be a great deal,” Miller said. “That would be a great place for me to look at. I would definitely keep them in mind. I would like to come up there for a visit. Or go up there for a camp and talk with the coaches and everything like that.”

And when he does visit U-M, Miller says he’ll have an idea of what he is looking for on his potential visit.

“I got to feel comfortable with the coaches,” said the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder. “I want to make sure it’s a place I want to spend my next four or five years. I want to make sure I feel comfortable with my new set of my family. … I just want to feel home with those guys.

“You got to find that program that fits you the best. You got to love what you see. You got to fall in love with the campus too.”

Currently, Miller holds notable offers from Cal, Boston College, Duke and Vanderbilt. He has been on campus visits to Baylor, TCU and Arkansas. He is planning on checking out Duke, Boston College, Texas and Cal.

“We’re looking to come up to Michigan and looking around and see everything that we can see,” Miller said. “We’re still trying to figure out dates. It would be great to come up for the spring game or during the summer just to see everything. It would be great either way.”

Miller says he would like to make his decision towards the end of his senior season.
