Miller Proud of Chesapeake Bowl Victory

Metuchen (N.J.) four-star guard Dorian Miller was one of the bigger names at last week's Chesapeake Bowl, but he represented just one-fifth of the Rutgers contingent. Upon returning home, Miller described his bowl experience with and the bonding that took place between Rutgers commits.

Metuchen (N.J.) four-star guard Dorian Miller knew the importance of representing Rutgers at the Chesapeake Bowl, and got his wish with a 38-13 blowout for the North squad.

On a team featuring five players committed to Rutgers, Miller is proud of the way they took over the game.

"Overall I feel blessed to be able to play with them for the next four years," he said. "It's crazy that that's only a small amount of the class. I truly feel us as a class made noise and had an impact on the score and the game as a whole and helped the north team out a lot.

"I had a great time. I got to get a better sense of the other commits personalities, and I enjoyed all of them."

Joining Miller on the North team, Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) linebacker Myles Nash, Dayton (Springfield, N.J.) cornerback Anthony Cioffi, St. Elizabeth's (Del.) receiver Andre Patton and Egg Harbor Township (N.J.) defensive end Eric Wiafe played in the game.

Stroudsburg (Pa.) defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph accepted an invitation as well, but had to back out because of an offseason shoulder surgery.

Patton, who committed at the Louisville game, made the most noise in the game with a 33-yard touchdown with the game close.

"Patton is the real deal," Miller said. "He had a real nice touchdown and seemed like the strongest receiver there."

Rutgers had a strong showing defensively, highlighted by Cioffi's ability to lock down four-star Bayside (Virginia Beach, Va.) athlete Taquan Mizzell. Mizzell is headed to Virginia.

"Myles and Cioffi were real outgoing and funny," Miller said. "[They] both also showed great athleticism especially Cioffi when he hawked down that running back from Virginia."

Wiafe, a defensive lineman, clashed with Miller in 1-on-1 drills at practice and impressed with his strength.

"Wiafe was more quiet and has a lot of potential, he's a real big kid," Miller said.
