Miller Returns to Site of First Offer

Philadelphia (Pa.) Frankford defensive end Shareef Miller has his stock way up after a strong junior year. Returning to Rutgers where he earned his first major offer last summer, Miller broke down a long Saturday on campus.

Philadelphia (Pa.) Frankford defensive end Shareef Miller made a statement during the 2013 Rutgers Big Man Academy with impressive speed and quickness in drills. His performance earned him one of just a few offers out of the day and marked the beginning of his recruitment.

Miller's junior season earned him many new offers, including Penn State and Arizona, but a return trip to Rutgers was one of the most anticipated visits of his spring.

"The visit was great," said Miller, who was one of the top prospects on campus Saturday. "It was exciting to get back up to Rutgers."

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound defensive end left Rutgers with the Scarlet Knights still sitting high up on Miller's list of offers.

"I love Rutgers," Miller said. "That's how I feel."


"They were the first school to recognize me," Miller said. "They were the first to offer me, and also they showed me a lot of love."

Miller spent six hours at Rutgers on Saturday. His day began with another tour of the Hale Center that included stops at the weight room, locker room and a presentation about media and marketing opportunities at Rutgers.

Miller also met with current players, head coach Kyle Flood and associate head coach Norries Wilson before watching the Rutgers basketball game and heading home.

"I have a good connection with my recruiter, coach Wilson and also head coach Flood," Miller said. "We talked a lot at my visit yesterday."
