Texas 3-Star ATH Set to Visit Missouri, Kansas

Chris Miller will make unofficial visits to Kansas and Missouri on Tuesday.

Texas two-way standout Chris Miller will get a good look at a pair of former Big 12 rivals on Tuesday. 

Miller, a 5-foot-11, 173-pound three-star athlete from Denton (Tx.) High School, will make unofficial visits to both Kansas and Missouri

“They are big schools,” Miller told BlackAndGoldIllustrated.com. “Mizzou’s got good football tradition. Kansas is just a great place, from what I’ve heard.”


Miller estimated that he is up to 14 offers — a group that includes Houston, Iowa, Colorado and Boise State — but said he doesn’t really have a group of schools that is standing out to him right now.

Perhaps the Tigers, Miller's first Southeastern Conference offer, and the Jayhawks, who were one of his first D-1 offers, could change that with his visits on Tuesday. 


Miller is being recruited by most schools as either a wide receiver or a cornerback. 

“It’s evenly split,” he said. 

Kansas and Missouri, Miller said, are both recruiting him as a defensive back.

Miller’s preference? 

“I want to play both,” he said.

The Texas high school standout may be a good enough athlete to do it. He put on an impressive performance at a camp this spring.

Miller ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash and recorded a 40.2-inch vertical leap at The Opening regional in March in Dallas. His scores there left him as the third highest overall rating among the prospects there.
