Miller, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound linebacker from Highland Springs (Va.), took his first official visit to Tennessee earlier in the month and has visits scheduled with Virginia Tech (November 5th), Virginia (November 12th), and Florida (November 24th) before his trip to Chapel Hill.
During his December trip to North Carolina – a month before his planned January announcement, Miller hopes to dive deeper into the Tar Heels' football and academic programs.
"I'm looking forward to doing some of the things I did at Tennessee with North Carolina," said Miller. "Having lunch and breakfast with the coaches, chilling out with the players, seeing the academic side of it, and seeing parts of the campus I haven't seen before."
In addition to the five schools he plans to officially visit, Miller is considering Maryland and LSU. He claims all seven schools are equal, but the Tar Heels have made a great impression thus far especially with their on-the-field production the last two seasons.
"I've got a lot of respect towards North Carolina and the coaching staff," said Miller. "I really like what Coach John Bunting has done to that program – you know turn it around. I really like North Carolina – I really do. I think it's one of the greatest schools in the ACC."
While having Miller patrolling sideline-to-sideline, Highland Springs is off to a 6-1 start. Miller, ranked the No. 4 player overall in the state of Virginia by Scout.com, also doubles part-time as a center on the offensive line.
