Miller Enjoys Latest Rutgers Visit

Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano took advantage of a high-energy atmosphere at the Louis Brown Athletic Center yesterday to show off other parts of the university to some of the top 2013 recruits in the area. Metuchen (N.J.) offensive lineman Dorian Miller, who holds a verbal scholarship offer, was one of the recruits in attendance.

Metuchen (N.J.) 2013 offensive lineman Dorian Miller is familiar with the Rutgers basketball program from growing up in the area, but saw it all from a different view last night when he took in the game with members of the Rutgers coaching staff.

Sitting in the student section alongside multiple assistants and head coach Greg Schiano, Miller enjoyed his second unofficial visit to Rutgers in 30 days.

"The whole night went well," Miller said. "It was just a routine visit. I went up with my mom and my younger brother and we just hung out with the coaches at the Hale Center and got to know them a little better. We went over to the game, watched the game and then had to go home after the first half because it was late, but luckily the game was on TV."

Miller holds verbal scholarship offers from Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Connecticut and Maryland and expects to earn more as he goes through the camp and combine process over the next six months.

Growing up near Rutgers with a brother that played at Oklahoma, Miller has a good understanding of the recruiting process and said Rutgers is already a lock in his top five.

"Without a doubt, when it's all said and down and I have my top five, Rutgers will definitely be there," Miller said. "They've been there from the beginning. They've always let me know what they want. They never beat around the bush or misled me. They've always had one clear vision for me. I definitely respect them for that. I'm really liking them right now."

Miller has not given any thought to a verbal commitment to the five schools recruiting him, saying any thoughts of doing so will not come until the end of his junior year.

"I have a general idea of the schools that I'm interested in in my mind," Miller said. "I have to use the next four or five months to go on visits, look up the schools online, make sure they have my major, the little stuff like that. I want to evaluate the coaches to make sure they're the right guys to be around, like the Rutgers coaches. When I make my decision, I'm not trying to transfer wherever I go. I'm not looking for a messy situation wherever I do go."

Miller plans to major in history and would like to find a university with a strong background in the subject.
