Razor's Edge

After taking his visit to West Virginia, this offensive lineman has found himself on the horns of a dilemma.

"It's going to be either West Virginia or Illinois," said Jake Miller, who sees a lot to like in both schools. "I liked the campuses and the coaches at both places. They both felt like a good fit."

People who are faced with two good alternatives are often torn when it comes to chosing one or the other, and that's the point that Miller finds himself in right now.

"I'm just really torn," said Miller, whose tone of voice clearly showed his indecision. "I will talk to my parents and to my coaches about it, but no one will handle my decision. It's all up to me."

As for his visit to West Virginia, Miller said he found a great deal to like about the campus and school.

"I liked it a lot. It's close to home, and it's definitely a place I feel comfortable. I was down for the West Virginia – Virginia Tech game, and I was also there during the summer on an unofficial visit too."

The race appears to be so close that Miller hasn't set a timetable for his choice, or tried to list out the pros and cons of each school. He does say that he will not take any more visits, and that the choice will come down to one of the schools – but whther it's the Big East or the Big Ten remains up in the air.

"I just don't know right now," said Miller. "I am going think about it a lot. Whenever I get that gut feeling, that's what I'll go with.
