Ryan Miller has two

Good offensive tackles are hard to come by, which is why the top high school prospects have their choice to go just about any school they want. It's no different for Scout.com's No. 4 rated offensive lineman prospect, Ryan Miller, of Columbine high school (Colo.) He's had a pile of offers, but it is now down to just two schools.

Ryan Miller (6-7, 280-pounds) figured that his home-state Colorado Buffalos would be one of his final schools, he just needed to find the other school.

"It's just ND and CU right now," Miller said when asked about his recruitment. "I'm about 60 percent Colorado and 40 percent ND. I have an official visit schedule to CU when they play Baylor on October 6. I have an official scheduled to Notre Dame for the UCLA game, and we're bringing the whole gang to that game."

Notre Dame has played three games and they are sitting at 2-1 after losing a big contest to Michigan last weekend. Luckily for the Irish Miller didn't get a chance to watch the loss.

"Every team has one of those games except the '72 Dolphins," Miller replied when asked about Notre Dame's loss to Michigan. "Not many teams go undefeated. It's disappointing for the team that loses, but that just means that you're not perfect and you can work harder at practice to excel.

"I haven't really had much time [to watch college football]. I really haven't done anything. It's really just been football, schoolwork and recruiting.

"I've talked with coach Oliver and coach Weis a little bit. I haven't talked to them this week yet," Miller said. "I talk to the college coaches on average for about 20 minutes or even double that. I don't mind that because it's nice to have chemistry with coaches like that. It's a lot better than a ‘dear prospect letter.'"

Ryan doesn't plan on making a decision anytime soon. Once he takes his visits he'll get a better feel for where he wants to be for the next four years. Until that point he'll concentrate on his season.

"Things are good," Miller said of his season. "We're 2-1. We lost our first game because we weren't ready as a team I'm having a fairly good year, I can't complain. I'm doing what I can."
