"Ole Miss was actually the first school to offer me," stated Von Miller. "Coach (Ryan) Nielsen has called me pretty much every week since last February. They have probably recruited me harder than anybody."
There are a couple
more things that have impressed Von about Ole Miss.
"They have some
slots open at linebacker, and I know they had the Butkus award winner there last
year, and they are sending another LB high in the draft. That tells me they know
how to coach up their LB's."
Is all of this good enough for Ole Miss
to earn an official visit?
"Yes, I am going over there on Friday.
It is so far away, so I have not heard much about their campus, but I look forward
to seeing what it is all about. I really enjoy their staff, and hopefully the
campus is clean and friendly down there."
While Miller is gong to
visit Ole Miss this weekend, he remains committed to Texas A&M.
is a good chance I am going to still sign with Texas A&M, but I just want
to take a couple of visits to make sure I am making the right decision."
else will Von visit?
"I am going to Texas A&M next weekend and
Oklahoma after that."
What stands out about Oklahoma?
have not been to Oklahoma either.I had a few of their coaches come to my house
before the dead period started. Coaches Stoops, Wilson and Venables and explained
to me that they're losing six defensive ends. Other schools have told me I can
play early, but I think Oklahoma has proven to me that I can play as a freshman."
