Will Isaiah Miller be in Vols RB plans?

The depth chart at running back for Tennessee requires replenishment. Will the Vols dip into the Jacksonville area for help?

Isiah Miller does not have a firm grasp on where he will play his college football, but the running back wanted to see what Tennessee has to offer before finalizing his decision.

The Scout three-star prospect from the 2017 class educated himself on Big Orange Country with an official visit to Knoxville over the weekend.

"The running backs coach, coach (Robert) Gillespie, he's a real cool guy," Miller said. "I can bond with him. I think I can learn a lot from him. Coach Butch Jones is a great guy. Just really the couches and everything, the facilities and everything is nice. I've got family here in Tennessee. I think all that stuff stuck out to me.

"The bond with the coaches and just everybody was really nice, great people around there."I've seen it on TV. It was everything I expected and more. So it was great."

Committed in this class are Ty Chandler and Trey Coleman. Tennessee has not yet offered Miller.

"He's going to get back with me here soon," Miller said. "I'll find out everything. They'll contact me later tonight. I'm going to call coach Gillespie, And I'll go from there."

The Baldwin (Fla.) High School back is a soft verbal to Oregon State and officially visited Missouri last weekend. 

"I'm still committed, but I'm going to sit down with my family and look at all the visits I've taken and just kind of make a decision here in the next week.

"No specific date but it will definitely be this week."

Miller said he seeks "somewhere I can come in and be an impact player, just feel comfortable at, you know, home feel. That's it really, just somewhere I can be successful."

The First Coast product plans to enroll in college in January. The NCAA Dead Period starts Monday.
