Ryan Miller (6-7, 280-pounds) made a trip to South Bend in late April, and he will return this weekend as the Irish take on the UCLA Bruins. He enjoyed his initial visit, but the Irish need to make a big impression if the would like to Miller to be a part of their 2007 recruiting class.
"We're leaving early Friday morning," Miller said of his plans to travel to Notre Dame for his official visit. "I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking to see if I'm comfortable. It has to be a family atmosphere. It has to be somewhere I can go for the next four years and live comfortably. It's got to feel like home to me."
"[In April] I wish I had gotten to spend more time with the team and see how everything is like."
Miller will get the opportunity to spend time with the Notre Dame players, but he would also like to get to know more about the Irish offensive line coach.
"Coach Oliver and coach Weis," Miller replied when asked who had done most of the recruiting for Notre Dame. "I'd like to get a better feel with coach Latina."
