OSU coaches get early camp jump this weekend

ALL EYES WILL be on Omaha this weekend for Beav fans but there's something going on for football recruiting junkies, too. The Beaver coaches will be at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, Calif., offering instruction at the football clinic to Golden State prospects aplenty. Among the participants will be a Roseville offensive lineman with double digit offers, including one from OSU.

Kolton Miller out of Roseville High is a towering 3-star prospect – the class of 2014 offensive tackle already checks in at 6-foot-8.

At 285 pounds, he has loads of room on his frame to put on pounds and muscle in the coming years – and that's the kind of o-lineman college programs covert, athletic bodies who can pack on the bulk in college.

He'll camp at DVC with the Oregon State coaches for the half-day camp on Sunday. The offensive and defensive linemen go from 10-12 p.m., with the remaining positions taking the field from 1-3 p.m.

But it won't be long after until he sees the Beaver coaches again.

He'll also take an unofficial to Corvallis on Tuesday, his father Dan says.

Miller has 10 offers including four from the Pac-12 -- Oregon State, Washington State, Arizona State, Arizona, Idaho, Texas Tech, Fresno, Reno, SDSU and SJSU.

MILLER HAD A strong showing in Reno most recently, according to his father.

He won the all-team top offensive and defensive linemen awards.

At the Oakland Nike Football Training Camp last month, the Scout.com analysts in attendance were impressed, although he's physically not close to where he'll be after getting into a college strength and nutrition program.

"Kolton was one of the most physically impressive tackles there, with long arms and pretty good footwork. When he (fills) out, he's got a chance to be a pretty good tackle, but still looks a little slight," said scout.com.
