Roy Miller Set To Announce Saturday

After making his fourth (and final) official visit over the weekend, Killeen Shoemaker DT Roy Miller hopped a plane from snowy Salt Lake City on Sunday for San Antonio, where he will compete in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl festivities this week. Miller told that he'll announce his college destination sometime during Saturday's game at the Alamodome.

"I'm still leaning towards Texas," Miller told Inside Texas, but he said his final decision will come down to Texas, UCLA and Utah, three of the four schools he officially visited. He also tripped to Oklahoma last fall and pledged to the Sooners at one time, but has since backed off that commitment and eliminated OU from consideration.

What will factor into his final decision?

"Definitely the family atmosphere, of course a winning team, a team on the rise," he said. "It's gotta have everything. Especially if I'm not going to be close to my family I'm going to need that family atmosphere."

Miller said he has a cousin currently at Utah and that his dad "got a job in Washington," which is why he's looked West at the Bruins and the Utes.

The 6-2, 295-pounder called the opportunity to play in the U.S. Army game a "blessing" and said he's excited about the challenge of competing with and against some of the top high school talent in the nation in San Antonio.

"I'm just glad to be here and be able to play against the best," said Miller. "I always want to test against the best. I look forward to meeting the best players and seeing what's going on in their heads."
