Miller talks Recruitment

After rushing for nearly 2700 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2009, Missouri running back Darrian Miller has received interest from around the country, including an offer from Wisconsin.

MADISON - High school and college football has gotten started all around the country, which might cause prospects to get a little less attention from staffs. It also gives them time to evaluate their own recruitment, and possibly name some leaders.

Darrian Miller, a talented running back from Blue Springs, MO, led his team to a 12-2 record and state runner-up finish last season.

After rushing for nearly 2700 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2009-10, Miller has received a lot of interest from around the country.

Miller picked up offers from the likes of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kansas State and Louisville.

While Wisconsin has reportedly offered, Miller denied having recent contact with the Wisconsin staff, although he is interested in the way that Wisconsin uses its running backs.

As his season gets started, Miller is starting to get his recruiting into focus. While picking up offers from an impressive list of schools, his two programs that haven't offered yet that are his top two choices.

"My choices right now would be Missouri or Michigan State," Miller told Badger Nation. "Mizzou is close to home, but my father will pay my full way through Michigan State."

Blue Springs HS looks forward to week 2 of their season after a tough loss to Rockhurst 7-6 in week one.

Miller also wants to take a closer look at a few schools. Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Kansas, where he was once a verbal commit, all look to be in line for an official visit during the season.

While he has some favorites right now, Miller isn't quite ready to make a decision.

"Probably sometime closer to graduation," Miller explained.

While Wisconsin isn't in the running for Miller, they continue to look for a running back for the Class of 2011.
