Bishop Dunne 3-star receiver Adrian Miller decided to swing by SMU's final spring scrimmage with his dad on Saturday, but was already impressed with SMU before he walked on campus.
"I just wanted to check out the program and see how they run things," Miller said. "It's a good passing offense and I really like that about them."
"A.D.," who holds offers from the likes of Cal, Oregon State, Southern Miss and SMU, has been talking with coach Jason Phillips and Derek Odum for the past couple weeks.
"They're really nice guys and I like the way they coach," Miller said.
Miller said it's still very early for him and he has no favorites, but likes SMU's spread offense and Phillips has told him he could come in early and get time in June Jones' offense.
"Most of the receivers are juniors right now so when they go ahead and leave, I'll be playing early as a freshman or sophomore so I really like that part," the 6-3, 170 pound receiver said.
Miller's dad, Reggie, wants A.D. in a school where he can showcase his talents on offense.
"They (SMU) air it out and him being a receiver, I really want him to be at a school where he can showcase his talent," Miller said. "I like their program, I like the school."
Miller added that they'll take visits over the summer to all the schools that have offered with hopes of having a decision before the start of the season.
As for the decision, the older Miller has been letting "A.D." do most of the work for his recruitment.
"It's mainly been him. Me and his mom have been sitting back, letting him talk and get a feel," Miller said. "He's the one who's going to have to stay there for the next four or five years."
"I'm still thinking about."
While Miller isn't sure about camping with SMU, he is still interested in SMU because of its proximity to home.
"It'd be good to have my family out here to come watch me play every game," Miller said. "That's one thing I'm looking at right now."
For now, Miller will just work on the little things like working to get off the line better and becoming a better route runner. Adding size to his 6-3 frame would help as well, as Miller looks like a young Keenan Holman.
