Miller Talks Recruiting, Minnesota Offer

The last time Minnesota recruited a receiver with only one year of playing experience it worked out pretty well. Coach Kill and his staff are trying to lure another receiver in his first year of action to Minnesota. Charlie Miller from Vero Beach (Fla.), has less than a year of playing experience but that has not stopped schools from showing interest.

"Schools that are interested are Minnesota, Wisconsin, UCF, FIU, and Kentucky," said Miller.

Miller has had plenty of success in his first year of football. Through six games he has 26 receptions for 717 yards and six touchdowns. The success on the field led to Miller's first scholarship offer.

"Last week on Wednesday, Coach Robert Reeves was at our practice and offered me a scholarship," Miller explained. "It felt great to get that first offer."

The scholarship offer from Coach Reeves was the first time that Miller had been contacted by Minnesota. Coach Reeves called the explosive receiver shortly after returning to Minnesota.

"Coach Reeves called me just to check on how my game went and how things were going," Miller said. "He also told me that they were looking for guys who can make and he said after watching my tape, he knows that I can make plays. He also told me about their new stadium and facilities."

Does Miller have a date to set to visit Minnesota?

"We set up a visit for sometime in early December. We don't have an exact date set yet," answered Miller. "I enjoy the cold weather," he added.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Vero Beach receiver claims no favorites at this point in his recruitment.

"I plan on committing sometime after the season ends," noted Miller. "I want to see what will happen."
