Familiar Offense Could Help Millard

National Signing Day is here and the crew at Sooners Illustrated has you covered. Throughout the day, we will bring you a variety of material about the upcoming Sooner class. Here is a brief interview with Rock Bridge athlete Trey Millard from Missouri.

Familiarity can sometimes play a role in a man's decision.

For Oklahoma commit Trey Millard, that was the case.

"When I went to see them (Oklahoma) practice, the intensity was high tempo," Millard said. "That quick, no-huddle style offense is what I like. We do some of that same stuff at my high school."

So when the Rock Bridge athlete witnessed how the Sooners do it while he was on an unofficial visit, the 6-2.5, 245-ppund Millard got in touch with assistant coach Kevin Wilson and said that Oklahoma was where he wanted to be. That commitment came in late August 2009

Of course, his connection with Wilson and the coaching staff played a big role in him choosing the Big 12 power as well, among other things.

"I really like the style of coaching and the attitudes at Oklahoma," Millard said. "As for my position, the coaches told me that I would play tight end, but I would also come out of the backfield some as well. I like the way they use the tight end and I think I could do well there."

Millard was considering other schools like Tennessee, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Syracuse, South Carolina and Stanford when he chose to be a Sooner.
