Miller: 'I Never Wavered'

North Carolina 2006 signee Jarrell Miller said his mind was made up when he announced on national television he was going to be a Tar Heel at the Army All-American Bowl in December, and made good on his word when he faxed in his national Letter of Intent to UNC on Wednesday morning.

But apparently, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech didn't fully get the message.

"No sir; I never wavered," Miller said from his school as his fax was being sent. "I knew in San Antonio I had made up my mind where I was going.

"I listened to what they had to say… I gave them a chance - I then just said, ‘My mind's made up; I'm going to North Carolina.'"

"He had to follow his heart and that's what he did," Highland Springs coach Scott Burton said while standing beside Miller. "When you listen to heart, you can't go wrong."

Miller said he appreciated all of the coaches and schools which pursued him during the recruiting process. Unlike some highly regarded prospects, Miller has fully enjoyed his time in the spotlight and hopes it will continue.

He's also relieved this part is over.

"It feels good, so much better," Miller said. "I feel good."
