2017 prospect Brian Miller's first offer was from NC State. As of right now that's still his only offer. He won't soon forget the school that gave him that first offer. He will probably never forget it.
Will that lead Miller (6-2, 275) to sign with the Wolfpack when he's ready to make a firm decision and put pen to paper? He isn't ready to even think about that. Miller will admit that the offer means a lot and that his interest in the Pack has not cooled one bit.
"I would say I have a lot of interest in them. Right now that's my only offer and it means a lot that they offered."
Wake Forest's staff has made a trip to Memorial Day School to take a look at Miller and learn more about him. They have not offered yet but the Demon Deacons have let Miller and his coaches know that they like his potential and believe he is a player they will recruit. But NC State has shown more interest than any other school.
Miller was included in Pack Pride's photo gallery after the NC State-Clemson game. Though it was a loss for the Wolfpack the Savannah (GA) defensive tackle said he had a great time visiting the school and seeing what football at NC State was all about.
"The crowd was live and I just loved it. That was the first time I had visited since the camp that I went to. The camp is what got me the offer. They said I did really good and I felt comfortable with the coaches and the way they coached me so I loved that. I have a really good time whenever I'm up there."
He has not been to any other schools for games in 2015.
The NC State coaches worked Miller out at defensive end and defensive tackle. He said they like that he seems able to anchor down at different positions on the line. That summer offer has turned into a long-lasting relationship between Miller and the coaches. That they have continued to talk to him and invite him to games is a good indicator that their interest was not fleeting.
Miller said he has been speaking and messaging with Ryan Nielsen since the summer.
"We definitely stay in touch. I used to DM him a lot on Twitter and really we still do. Most of it was in September though."
Memorial Day School just won their second round playoff game and going into that game Miller's season-long stat sheet showed 75 tackles and five sacks.
