Detroit Star Impressed By Visit to the Deep South

At 6-foot-1, 190 pounds with 4.3 speed in the 40, its hard to find a more physically talented cornerback than Detroit-Country Day's (Mich.) Tim Miller. The 2nd Team All-State selection took his first of three scheduled official visits this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by what he saw.

"They laid out the red carpet trimmed with gold for us," said Tim Miller Sr. of he and his son's trip to Vanderbilt this weekend.

"The new coach (Bobby Johnson) is a winner and he and his staff left no stone unturned - they answered every question we had about Vanderbilt football and the school. On a scale of one to 10, it was through the roof," exclaimed Miller Sr.

"We weren't expecting much, but we were very impressed," said Miller, "so if his first choice doesn't happen, we'd be happy to have Tim go to Vanderbilt."

Miller's first choice is, and always has been, Notre Dame. Miller will trip to South Bend the weekend of January 25th and has a trip to Nebraska scheduled this coming weekend.

As a senior at Country Day, Miller had 57 tackles and four forced fumbles despite being avoided the entire season by opposing quarterbacks. On offense he topped 1,000 yards rushing and scored 14 touchdowns on just 121 carries. Top Stories
