Beavs make in-roads with 3-star Cali OT

A THREE-STAR offensive tackle prospect out of California recently spent some time in Corvallis on an unofficial visit, and also worked under the tutelage of the Beaver staff at a camp event. The whole black and orange experience this month, says his dad, rated an A-plus.

It was a family affair for Kolton Miller (6-8, 290) and the Beavs.

Miller participated at the Oregon State football camp event at Diablo Valley College and a few days later, took an unofficial visit to OSU. Both Miller and his dad met Mike Riley, o-line coach Mike Cavanaugh and other Beaver coaches at DVC.

Afterwards, he went to the Oregon State campus with his mother and little brother.

Oregon State did a "fantastic job" in making the Roseville product feel at home, said his father, Dan.

"I would rate the whole experience as an A-plus visit and (OSU) is among the top of his list today," the elder Miller told BF.C.

MILLER HAS 10 OFFERS including four from the Pac-12 -- Oregon State, Washington State, Arizona State, Arizona, Idaho, Texas Tech, Fresno, Nevada, SDSU and SJSU.

He was named second team All-Sierra Foothill League for his work on defense as a junior but he'll be playing on the other side of the ball at the next level.

Miller at 6-9, 290 still has lots of room on his frame and is not close physically to what he'll be down the road after he gets into a college weight program and bellies up to a training table.

Miller has received a qualifying test score, securing over a 1200 mark on his SAT.

MILLER ALSO CAMPED at Oregon, with the Ducks telling Miller he'll find out if they're going to extend an offer in the next two weeks. He ran a 5.1 in the 40 in Eugene.

Miller also tripped to USC and UCLA recently, with his dad saying both trips went well and an offer may be coming from the Trojans after this weekend.

He's also been to Cal and Nevada and will visit UA and ASU in late July.

At the Oakland Nike Football Training Camp in May, the analysts in attendance offered up this assessment of Miller:

"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
