D-End With Options

This East Texas defensive end is now up to six offers and the Bobcats are one of the programs that are standing out. An offer was extended Friday night and we have the latest.

About two weeks ago, the Coaching Staff went by Canton High School and talked with defensive end Sam Miller. They let him know that they were very interested and it turned out to be a sign of things to come.

On Friday night, the Texas State Coaches let he know that he had an offer waiting for him.

"I got a call from Coach Tatum and he told me that they talked to one of the other coaches and they offered. They're excited about me and want me to play for them," said Miller.

With the Bobcats offering, Sam is now up to six: UTSA, Nevada, Memphis, UNT, and Oregon State have already offered. Baylor is another program to keep an eye on. They have yet to offer, but the Bears will he hosting Miller in June at one of their camps and have been showing strong interest.

Miller is a 6'3" 220lb DE that is working hard in preparation for his upcoming senior season. His size and non-stop motor are just some of the reasons that he has multiple options. With Texas State now in the mix, the Bobcats are looking like a serious contender.

"Right now, the fact that San Marcos is a fun city, it interests me a little more. I want to be somewhere where I'm comfortable. Plus they have the river. It's just a fun place to be. It seems like a place I would be comfortable with. It's only 4-5 hours from home," said Miller.

It is possible that a decision could come this summer and before his senior year. With that said, Sam made it clear which programs are currently standing out to him.

"The main schools I'm considering are North Texas, Texas State, and UTSA. They're all in Texas and I like the fact that they're closer to home and not too far away. Oregon State is also a big one, I'm considering them too," said Miller.

He attended Texas State's Junior day earlier this year and the staff has been in constant contact since then.
