Two-Way Athlete Getting Pac-10 Interest

Anthony Miller, a 6-3, 249-pound tight end and linebacker prospect, is getting recruiting interest for both sides of the ball. Some Pac-10 schools have offered, and UCLA is definitely recruiting him. It might help that he comes from a Northern California high school that has two UCLA committed players...

UCLA has been having good recruiting success at Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, both in football (Steve Sloan) and basketball (Drew Gordon).

The Monarchs have another prospect that the Bruins are recruiiting -- tight end/linebacker Anthony Miller (6-3, 249) -- and though they haven't offered Miller, they have been keeping their eye on him during the evaluation period.

Miller has five scholarship offers, from California, Arizona State, Nebraska, San Jose State and Oregon, and said that the Bruins, Washington State, Utah and USC are some of the other schools who have been showing interest in him that have yet to offer.

"I've heard from UCLA, but they haven't offered me," said Miller. "I went to their Junior Day and I'm going to their 1-day camp, too. I met them when they recruited Steve."

Miller said that he has no leader and that he doesn't have a solid top five. "I'm pretty wide open at this point," said Miller. "I'm in no rush."

Miller also plans to camp at Cal and USC and he's gone to the Nike Camp at Stanford, where he had a performance that he was pleased with.

Last fall, Miller earned First Team all-WCAL honors for both tight end and linebacker, playing next to Sloan on the defensive side of the ball, and being a big part of the Monarchs' ground-oriented offense while catching 11 passes.

In terms of what position he'll play in college, Miller himself wasn't sure yet. "I'm getting recruited by most schools for a little of both," said Miller. "They like me on both sides."
