Florida running back ready to check out Oregon State

Oregon State will welcome four official visitors to campus this weekend, including 3-star running back commit Isaiah Miller who spoke to BeaverBlitz prior to boarding his plane.

Since committing to the Oregon State program mid-June, Florida running back Isaiah Miller has been looking forward to making the trip out to Oregon State. The 3-star will be doing just that as he will be taking his official visit to Corvallis to see the Beavers take on the Washington State Cougars.

Miller is in the midst of a huge senior year, having rushed for 1150 yards and 14 touchdowns in just 14 games. He has led his Baldwin Indians to a 6-2 record so far and last night, behind his 217 yard performance, his team clinched a playoff spot.

"I really like to mold my style of running to Ezekiel Elliot. I really think he's an all-around back and that's what I try to be too," Miller told BeaverBlitz before leaving for his visit.

Miller, a 5-foot 11-inch athlete, will be making his first trip out to Oregon and is looking forward to learning more about the university he is committed to.

"The thing I'm really looking forward to the most is meeting all of the coaches and seeing what the day-to-day schedule is like for their student-athletes," he said. "I want to be able to see what my academic schedule will be like because I really feel like that's the most important thing. I also want to see everything that Oregon State has to offer their athletes."

For Miller, it has been a bit of a dual recruiting effort as he has been hearing from both safeties coach Derrick Odum and running backs coach Telly Lockette. The two coaches have done a great job connecting with Isaiah and selling him on a couple different factors that contributed to why he chose to play across the country at OSU.

"I really committed to Oregon State because of the style of offense they play and for a chance to play in the Pac-12 is exciting. They use their backs in different ways and do a good job of getting the ball in their hands."

His trip to Oregon State will be his first official visit and it probably won't be his last as he anticipates taking at least a couple more trips.

"I really want to kind of enjoy the recruiting process because I only get to do it once, so I figure I might as well. Even though I'm committed, I don't think it's an issue."

A visit to Syracuse has been scheduled for December and a couple more might be in the works before Signing Day.

BeaverBlitz will check back in with Miller to see how his official visit went as it comes to a close on Sunday.
