Miller has two on top

West Craven (NC) defensive end Gerard Miller is a versatile athlete on the field and has several schools hot on his trail. A strong Shrine Bowl candidate, Miller says he has two schools on top.

"Nothing much really has changed," says 6-foot-4, 255 pounder. "I just went to NC State and saw their game against North Carolina. I liked when Carolina came back and made it into a game. It is more fun to see both teams scoring than just watching a blowout. After the game, I saw some of the younger players, talked to some of the guys in the lockerroom."

After the experience, it seems as though the Wolfpack could be pushing out in the lead from his previous three favorites, but Miller is not ready for that just yet.

"Pretty much, my top two are NC State and Florida State. Other schools are still in it, and it will be a very hard decision. I had a top three, but the only two that really stand out in recruiting me are those two. I can see myself going to all of the schools, including North Carolina and Tennessee as well."

As for official visits, Gerard would like to take at least four but he has not been able to line any up at the moment.

"I do not have dates on visits yet, but I'm pretty much trying to make sure that Dec 6th I am not doing anything other than going to the state championship game. I also want to make sure that I make the Shrine Bowl and that date is the 9th of Decemberfor practice. Hopefully I can make all my visits in late December and January."

While Miller has not heard about a slot on the Shrine Bowl team, there is an excellent chance he will make the team.

"I haven't exactly heard from the Shrine Bowl coaches, but my head coach here is the defensive line coach for North Carolina in the game."
