St Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut cornerback Keondrae Miller still has Wisconsin high on his list

Having built a strong relationship with defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield, St Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut cornerback Keondrae Miller continues to have strong feelings for Wisconsin.

St Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut cornerback Keondrae Miller has Wisconsin as his leader, a pretty bold statement since he has yet to visit Madison or the Badgers’ campus.

But ever since he received his offer in late May, Miller has been hearing about Wisconsin. The Badgers have been a constant recruiting presence in the state of Florida, and Miller has been hearing nothing but great things from his friends, his high school coach and his own research on the school.

"It's hard to get up to Wisconsin; I don't always have all the resources to get across the country, but I know one way or another I will get up there for a visit,” Miller told BadgerNation. “I may this fall, but when I get up there I will bring my whole family. I want them to see what I see because they have huge influences on my choice. My family loves Wisconsin and Iowa State already, but they're open to all schools."

Although it's early in Miller's recruitment, Miller has racked up others power five offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, Iowa State and Louisville. Miller has kept Wisconsin at the top of his list because of his relationship with defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield.

"Me and Coach Breckterfield have a great relationship,” Miller said. “We talk a couple times a week and I can tell the whole staff wants me. They've told me to visit numerous times, and they can't wait for me to catch a game this fall. He is my favorite coach I talk to because he preaches more than football. He preaches life lessons and is just an easy guy to talk to."

With no decision date in mind, this off-season will be busy for Miller. His main focus is on improving as a player, calling it a "responsibility" to keep improving for his current and future team.

"It's gonna be very busy this off-season,” he said. “I'm going to be balancing camps, high school workouts and focusing on ACT/SAT preparation. I have high school workouts five days a week, and I'll be focusing on my speed and quickness. My coach and I work on turns and backpedaling a lot, so that's my main focus.”
