Miller Eyes Final Visit to Pitt

Pennsylvania tight end/offensive tackle Andy Miller is weighing offers from finalists Indiana, Ohio State, Pitt and West Virginia. After taking visits to Indiana, OSU and West Virginia already, Miller is eyeing his final visit to Pittsburgh.

Andy Miller is faced with the sort of problem that anyone would love to have.

The 6-7, 255-pound tight end/offensive tackle from Washington (Penn.) Trinity H.S. is going to be making a decision on where he'll play his college football sometime in the next month, and he's loaded with quality options.

He's already made official visits to Indiana (Dec. 2), West Virginia (Dec. 9) and Ohio State (Dec. 16), and he'll make a final official stop to Pitt on Jan. 6. It's an impressive list of options for's 50th-ranked prospect from Pennsylvania, the sort that he knows he's lucky to have.

"All I can say is I was really impressed with all of my visits and that makes things a lot harder," said Miller. "But I guess that's a good problem to have."

Indiana is trying to overcome the fact that it is the farthest away of the four finalists from his Pennsylvania home. Miller said distance is a factor, although it's not something that will be necessarily be a determining factor.

"I want my decision to be based on the people that I'm going to be around. If it comes down to it where that's the place I feel the most comfortable, then (distance) won't be as much of a factor."

One thing that won't figure prominently into Miller's decision is where his finalists want him to play on the field. He said both Indiana and Ohio State are recruiting him to play tight end, while Pitt and West Virginia envision him developing into an offensive tackle.

Tight end is the position he's played throughout his prep career, but he isn't going to let that be a deciding factor.

"Tight end is what I've known, I've never played tackle, but it wouldn't be that hard going from tight end to tackle – it's not like moving from tight end to cornerback," said Miller, who caught nine passes for 193 yards as a senior. "I'm not going to go to a school because of a position."
