Washington (Pa.) Trinity tight end/offensive lineman Andy Miller is ironing out his official visit schedule.

Miller (6-6, 255, 4.9) got an offer from Ohio State last week before making a weekend official visit to Indiana. He now has trips set with West Virginia this coming weekend, Ohio State Dec. 16 and Pittsburgh Jan. 7.

Miller was originally set to visit OSU on Sunday and Monday after the WVU trip, but he said, "I want to be able to do the weekend thing."

Regarding Indiana, Miller was impressed with his treatment in Bloomington.

"I was very impressed with the people," Miller said. "All of the coaches in college football seem to be great guys. I hope I find this at all of the schools I go to. I met some special people at Indiana. I think they do have my very best interests in mind.

"I think I fit in well at the school. I drew that conclusion from being around the players. As far as the coaching staff, they are a bunch of great guys. They have a great vision of where they want to go."

Miller is looking forward to his trip to West Virginia.

"I have not had to much one-on-one time with them," he said. "I have talked to Coach Gibson there a lot. That's the hard part of this process – there are too many great people.

"I want to go to a place where football can help me to get where I need to go. It would be great to continue playing football at the next level. I want to be around people who will make the process of getting to the NFL or to my career outside of football as smooth as possible."

OSU assistant Joe Daniels brought the good news that Miller had an offer from the Buckeyes last week.

"Coach Daniels impresses me very much," Miller said. "He seems like a terrific guy. He is a really good coach. He genuinely cares about you.

"He was here and he went home and got everything sorted out. Then, he came back and brought the (offer letter) with him to the school."

Miller discussed his thoughts on Ohio State.

"I know Ohio State is a football school with a great tradition," he said. "For those guys to keep their heads and succeed at that caliber of football, that's awesome. I don't know that much about Ohio State. I know they have really good football. The school is really big. It is located there in Columbus.

"I know I will figure a lot of things out on these visits. I want to keep an open mind. I am going to take every one equally. At the end of it, I hope I can say that one school is the place for me."

Miller spent his early years near Philadelphia before moving to Washington, located just south of Pittsburgh, at age 10.

"This is my hometown," he said. "All of my family lives here. I'd say Pittsburgh is my hometown, but Pittsburgh football has never really been the highlight of my life. I do really enjoy it. Being here locally, I do get to watch it. They have another group of great guys.

"Coach Junko is an alum of my high school and he is good friends with a lot of people who have been important to me and my decision process. They have influenced me throughout my life. That's not the reason I'm going to pick a school, though.

"If I pick Ohio State and that's terrible for 1,000 people, then that's terrible for them."

Miller said WVU and Pitt are recruiting him as an offensive line, while IU and OSU have mostly discussed tight end.

"Obviously, I would like to play tight end," Miller said. "But I know I am going to play whatever position the team needs me to play."

Miller, ranked as the No. 50 prospect in Pennsylvania by, had nine catches for 193 yards this year and ended his prep career with 20 grabs for 400 yards. He boasts a 3.99 GPA and scored the equivalent of a 1060 on the SAT.
