Fans Impress Miller

One of the top offensive line prospects remaining on Wisconsin's recruiting board, Roseville (CA) senior offensive tackle Kolton Miller walked away impressed by the Badgers because of the program's fan base.

Coming on his official visit with his mother and younger brother, Roseville (CA) senior offensive tackle Kolton Miller and his family all left very impressed by what the University of Wisconsin had to offer.

"The visit went very good," Dan Miller, Kolton's father told BadgerNation. "He was either going to like it or not. He liked the visit. Everybody was real professional and the fans were great. I think that was the biggest thing because at the game the fans really stood out to him. When I asked him what he liked most about the visit, he told me the fans because they were crazy and pretty cool. He really liked the fans at Wisconsin. Wisconsin is definitely in consideration, so I think they did good."

"He didn't mention any negatives about the trip. His mom said the academics were great and the coaching staff was very professional and they certainly made them feel at home. The whole experience was really good, so mission accomplished."

The 6-8, 280-pound offensive tackle – a three-star recruit and the No.51 offensive tackle by Scout.com - currently holds offers Arizona, Arizona State, California, Fresno State, Nebraska, Oregon State, San Diego State, Texas Tech, Washington State and others. After accepting the offensive line commits of Jacob Maxwell and Micah Kapoi, there is one spot remaining on the offensive line at Wisconsin.

"I think right now he is overwhelmed after this trip to Wisconsin and is very tired," Miller said. "I think for him, he is probably going to go on the Oregon State visit and after that decide where he will visit next. Will he go visit Nebraska, Arizona, Arizona State or does UCLA come in the picture for a visit?

"I think he will take a little breather and relax for now. I told him to take his time and take in all the information along with talk to coaches. We will sit down on (December) 15th and talk about where he wants to visit in January."
