One official visitor at the University of Tennessee this past weekend, already had his mind made up before arriving for the two-day stay in Knoxville.

For defensive end Corey Miller, a Byrnes High School (S.C) standout athlete, the official trip was just icing on the cake.

"I loved every minute of my trip," Miller told InsideTennessee. "It has become my second home. I love everything about Knoxville and the University of Tennessee."

The former Florida State commitment decommitted from the Seminoles earlier in the fall and joined fellow teammate and defensive lineman Brandon Willis in choosing the Volunteers.

"I loved the game," Miller said. "UT is booming right now. It's just the beginning of good things to come with this football program. Vol fans need to get ready. We are going to win a lot of games, a lot of championships, including national titles."

Miller got a chance to see a lot of things while on his visits.

"I love what I'm seeing right now at Tennessee," Miller said. "I got the chance to see a few new things, got the chance to take the tour of the academic center."

What did Miller think of the game-day atmosphere?

"It was ridiculous,' Miller admitted. "I can't wait to play in front of that many screaming fans."

Something else that caught Miller off guard was the new uniforms that the Volunteers came out in.

"That surprised me a lot," Miller said. "I thought it was great. I loved the energy that it created with the team."

How does Miller feel about his commitment to the Volunteers?

"That's easy," Miller said. "I'm 100 percent a Volunteer. Brandon and I are coming to UT in January. We will have the entire spring to get acclimated to college football at Tennessee."

Miller and Willis intend to be back at Rocky Top this weekend for the Memphis game.

"We plan on making the Memphis game," Miller said. "We want to get back up there and do a little more recruiting. This is going to be a great class."
