Recruiting: Pat Miller To Visit OSU

Cornerback is a primary position in the 2009 Oklahoma State recruiting class and there is at least one spot, maybe two, available for good cornerbacks. Another standout corner expected to visit Oklahoma State this weekend is Pat Miller out of Alabama prep powerhouse Hoover High School in Birmingham

Miller and his Hoover teammates made it to the state championship game this year only to lose, but Miller had an All-State type season with 80 total tackles, a sack, and six interceptions.

Corner is a natural for him and he would remind Oklahoma State fans of Darrent Williams, the former Cowboy that went on to the NFL before his untimely and tragic passing.

"My defensive coordinator was looking at me when I was on offense and he said I had the look of a corner," said Miller in a recent interview with Scout. "I have been playing out there for three years in high school. I played it some before then, but not like it is now.

"I like it a lot. I love being in man-to-man coverage. It's just you and him out there trying to get the ball. I am usually the one who gets it."

The 5-11, 170-pound Miller visited Kentucky in December.

"It went good," said Miller of the visit to Lexington. "Something that stood out, well the coaches, they were good and the team in general has a good relationship. I am looking for the place I feel at home and where I would have the chance to play.

"I want to play. I don't want to redshirt. I like Coach (Jason) Jones. We get along and we understand each other. I am also looking at Mississippi State and West Virginia."

Miller said he doesn't play any other sports. He could run track as he is a 4.45 in the forty.

"I could, but I'm in off-season football," he said. "I'm all about football and that means that I am working out for football, so that is all I do. I've got to be in off-season football workouts."
