Miller Tries to Prove Himself

The 5-11 1/2, 200-pound running back from Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser, Lonyae Miller, has done just about everything he can to garner recruiting attentions this spring. He reveals his top two schools to us...

One of the most frequent participants at spring camps and combines has been Fontana (Calif.) Kaiser running back Lonyae Miller (5-11 ½, 200).

The transfer from Rialto (Calif.) High continued his string of impressive performances this past weekend at the Los Angeles Combine.

Miller led the running backs in forty time (4.56), broad jump (124), 3-cone shuttle (7.25) and had the third best shuttle (4.19) and vertical (38).

But with all of the success on the camp circuit, where he has consistently been amongst the top testers, Miller still has to receive an offer. "It's kind of frustrating," Miller said. "But all I can do is go out there and work harder and show that I am worth a scholarship."

Miller's top two schools are UCLA and Arizona, and he thinks the Wildcat staff could soon offer. "Coach Canales and Coach Stoops were going to come by the school. They said they were impressed with me so far," said Miller.

UCLA continues to recruit him. Miller said, "(UCLA Assistant) Coach (Brian) Schneider just talked to me before the combine and they said they just want to see some more film."

Miller thinks the transfer from Rialto to Kaiser may have something to do with the early lack of scholarship offers. "Maybe they want to watch me in this offense a little more. Whatever it is, it's just driving me. I want to show them," said Miller, who rushed for 900 yards last season.

Miller said he is carrying a 2.9 GPA.
