Small Fracture

California defensive end Jeff Miller (6-6, 250, 4.75) from Westlake High School in Westlake Village was able to get out to Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Arizona State, Oklahoma and UCLA for unofficial visits this past summer, and he maintains those are favorites.

"I'm interested in those seven schools as my top ones right now and they're all pretty much even--they've all offered me," said Miller.

"So far this month I've heard from UCLA, Oklahoma, Arizona, Arizona State and Washington State. Right now I think the coaches at UCLA and Oklahoma are recruiting me the hardest. I've just heard from them a lot and I've also been getting a lot more mail from the coaches over at Arizona State," he said.

"I haven't got any official visits going yet, and I'll probably end up getting around to that after the season…I just don't really have any time to do them during the season. I'd like to end up taking all five of my visits, but if I end up getting blown away by one school I could end up committing--I just don't know at this point.

"I'd like to stay kind of close to home with this decision but going far away is not really a big deal for me," Miller said.

Miller will be out for the first four games of the season because he has a small fracture on the right side of his foot.

"I was running a route as a tight end and just ended up rolling my foot in a funny way. I should be ready to go by the fourth game of the season, the doctor said, but it could be after that if I'm not fully healed."

2.9 GPA/1500 SAT (new test)--"I'm pretty sure that I'm fully qualified. I don't think I need to retake the SAT, but I might, just to see if I can do better."
