Anthony Miller (WR, 6'0", 165lbs, 4.45) has given a verbal commitment to play for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in 2004. He is one of the fastest players in the state of New Jersey and has the ability to be an impact player. He possesses good acceleration, hands, balance, and body control. These skills should allow him to compete for a starting position upon his arrival on campus.
What solidified your decision?
He stated that he had wanted to commit for sometime now but his parents wanted him to take a few visits before making a decision. His parents had an opportunity to meet the Rutgers coaching staff and felt very comfortable with them. This cleared Miller to make his verbal commitment to the Scarlet Knights.
Miller also cited that:
- he did not want to go too far away from home.
- wanted to play early, if not start.
- wanted to "represent" New Jersey, rather than go to another state and help another state's program.
- He felt an automatic bond with the coaching staff and the players.
What is your next move?
He stated that he will be preparing for his senior year without the stress of a college decision or college recruiters pressing him.
He also plans on talking to a number of area standouts such as Duane Jerrett (WR, 6'5"-200lbs, 4.5, New Brunswick H.S.) and his teammate Jeremy Zuttah (OL/DL, 6'4"-270lbs, J.P. Stevens H.S) about joining him at Rutgers.
He stated that he will not be taking any visits to other schools and stated that it would be "pointless".
Have you taken your SAT's?
He stated that he has already taken his SAT and is awaiting his scores.
Will you be participating in track at Rutgers?
He stated that he was not sure if he would run track at Rutgers. In high school, he runs track to stay in shape for football. He felt the demands of college might not allow him to run. However, he stated that he would do whatever it takes to improve his performance. If running track will improve his performance, he will do so.
