Junior Prospect - LB Bob Miller

Bob Miller is a big and strong LB from Willoughby South who is getting a lot of attention from OSU. He is one of the state's top LBs in a year where OSU might be looking for help at the position. Duane Long caught up with him for the latest.

Linebacker could be a position of need for this year's recruiting class, and a weightroom warrior who might be able to help OSU is Willoughby South's Bob Miller. Miller stands at 6-2, 242 and has clocked in at 4.69. His weightlifting numbers are impressive as he squats 600, benches 350 and cleans 335.

OSU has taken notice.

"The schools that are contacting me the most are Iowa and Ohio State," Bob said. "All the Big Ten is in touch."

Bob played one of the inside spots in a 4-4 defense for Willoughby South. The only other position he's ever played is DE, where he started on varsity as a freshman. He's already been down to OSU for junior day, and he'll be back this weekend. He also plans on camping at OSU. He camped at MSU last year and PSU as a freshman.

When it comes to criteria in making a decision, Bob is looking for academics first (a quality business school), location second (he doesn't want to get too far away), and a top program third, where he will have a chance to win a national championship.

Off the field, Bob says he's a workout fanatic ("It's pretty much a hobby for me"), but he also likes to play golf. He wrestled too and went 15-6 last year. Ray Lewis is his favorite player.

Bob says he just wants to make sure he's doing the right thing as far as making a college choice. If he comes across the right program early, he'll make a choice, but just wants to feel right. His favorites are OSU, Boston College, Penn State, and Iowa.
