Florida WR Has 3 Visits Left

Josh Miller wasn't getting a whole lot of recruiting attention until he started sending his senior tapes off. That's when things really picked up.

"I had a great year," Josh Miller said. "I ended up with 850 yards rushing and about 600 passing. But I am gonna play wide receiver in college."

The Palatka standout, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, is currently playing basketball and will run track later this spring.

On the recruiting front, things are heating up.

"I went to Bowling Green and Louisville for visits last month," he said. "Bowling Green was alright. I have a cousin who plays linebacker there so it's nice to know I have a family member there. Louisville, I loved it up there and before Coach Petrino left, they were my top choice. Now, I'm backing off them and I wanna stay somewhere in Florida."

If staying in Florida is what Miller really wants to do, the next four weeks should tell the story.

"I'm going to South Florida next weekend," he said. "I haven't visited them yet but I like their program. They play in a good conference that won all their bowl games. The only thing is, Coach Dawsey was recruiting me and now he's at FSU. Coach Douglas is now my recruiting coach."

Following his trip to Tampa, the talented receiver prospect will head down to Orlando.

"I go to UCF on the 26th," he said. "The thing with them is that it's close to home and I've been to a few of their games and it seems like a good place."

Miller's final visit will be on February 2nd to Miami.

"I'm going down there on Super Bowl weekend," he said. "Coach Mosely came to my school right after football season and told me that I have a scholarship offer. I was real happy about that. He was telling me how much he liked me and stuff. Coach Shannon and him are supposed to be coming in next week to visit with me. They're a top notch program with a new coach and I'd love to get my degree and all but with Miami, they have a real high percentage of sending players to the NFL. I'd love to be in that type of environment."

Miller said he plans to announcing his decision around signing day but it's safe to say that he'll be staying in-state.
