Memphis Whitehaven rising senior outside linebacker Aubrey Miller has seen his recruiting pick up recently. On Tuesday evening he was ready to release a list of his top six schools.
Miller has visited three of the five schools already — Memphis, Louisville, Cincinnati — and is planning to visit the other two, Missouri and Iowa State, officially at some point.
Here's a quick rundown from Miller about what he likes about each school…
Memphis: “To be honest you can’t get rid of your hometown and for them to be my first offer that meant a lot because I know that my hometown wants me to be the hero of my city. And also I had plenty of family that went there and I can stay home.”
Louisville: “When I went down there, when I went on the visit, it was a beautiful visit. The coaches, I got to know them real well, I like how they coach and I like the scheme they are talking about me playing in.”
What kind of scheme is that? “They are talking about playing me as a strong safety. nickel, 4-3 — stuff like that.”
Cincinnati: “Actually my dad went to college (at Arkansas State) with one of the coaches, so I’ve been in touch with them a lot. And the campus is really well. Also, I like the environment there.”
Missouri: “When the coach visited up there, we had a nice conversation. Also I heard that they had the No. 5 defense in the nation. Defense is my favorite position in football. For them to have a pretty good defense, I thought that’s where I could fit in. Also, I’ll learn more when I go take my official visit.”
Iowa State: “It’s a great school. Actually, me and my dad are supposed to be taking an official visit up there soon and I’ll learn more.”
