Millard has 'amazing' visit to WSU

JOHNNY MILLARD, son of CougGreat Keith Millard, took his official visit to Washington State this past weekend. The 6-2, 185-pound strong safety prospect came onto the crimson radar late in the recruiting season after his tape arrived. As to his visit to the Palouse, it was two enthusiastic thumbs up. "That place is amazing, and I mean amazing," said the Pleasanton, Calif. standout.

Gut reaction on WSU official visit:
"It was great. That place is amazing, and I mean amazing," said Millard.

What stood out:
"I got to meet all the coaches and they were all great. They're people I'd really like to play for -- the players were all great, they really took us in. The facilities were great, the atmosphere, everything was all really good," said Millard.

Film breakdown:
"I sat down with coach (Chris) Ball and coach (Jody) Sears, we watched a little bit of their defense, their entire defense. (Both) coordinators..were explaining to me me what part I'd have in it," said Millard.

Where things stand with WSU:
"They haven't offered, there are kind of a lot of things going on like if something falls through, they might offer or they're trying to put the numbers together and it could be a possible grayshirt. They're going to let me know," said Millard.

Next contact with WSU:
"They're coming down sometime this week," said Millard.

Other schools close to offering:
"I'm going up to (San Jose State) on Thursday and they're going to give me the final word, and then Cal Poly also. I'm going to go on an official to (Cal Poly), they really like me there, they want me to play free (safety) and it looks like they're going to offer. I think San Jose is going to offer too but I'm just going to go and find out on Thursday," said Millard.

Final thought:
"Washington State is an amazing place," said Millard.

In 11 games this year at Foothill, Millard racked up 116 tackles, 23 for loss, 12 pass break ups, 9 forced fumbles, 8 fumble recoveries, 3 sacks and 2 interceptions.

His father, Keith Millard, an unholy wrecking ball on Washington State's defensive line in the early 80's prior to a standout NFL career than included the league's Defensive Player of the Year Award in 1989.
