The offer and the commitment that surprised some should be reminded about the importance that special teams plays into a game. More than that, you need to consider that there are kicking schools that also work with snappers. There is also a private rating given to these players around the country.
"I just wanted you to know that Rubio's rankings just came out from the Top 12 Event Elite camp that I was at in Los Angeles," Miller said. "I have officially moved up as the #2 long snapper in the country for the Class of 2013!"
This is great news for Miller and Nebraska fans as well. Miller is 6-foot-0 and 235-pounds and chose Nebraska over an offer from Eastern Michigan. From a prior interview Chris Rubio weighed in on Miller's abilities.
"Miller continues to impress me. I love how coachable he is. He has a solid personality that makes him casual when he needs to be but can turn "it" on in a matter of seconds. He also has incredible drive. Form is impeccable and it is proven in his accuracy, consistency and speed.
"He's doing a much better job of getting set and exploding when he snaps. He's a very, very smooth snapper to watch and moves well on his feet and is easily thick enough for the next level. He's a no brainer scholarship long snapper. Someone will get lucky with this one. He's also a great person."
