Brandon Miller was one of the top juniors in the state heading into this past fall. A dual threat quarterback, Miller had turned in an outstanding junior season passing for 2300 yards, 25TDs and only 3 interceptions while adding 4 more scores and 486 yards on the ground. He appeared headed for a big time college scholarship. This all changed though, when Miller was seriouly injured in a car accident and was forced to miss his entire senior season.
"All the big time schools stopped recruiting me." Miller recalls.
One team who did not stop pursuing the 6-2, 190-lb athlete was D2 champion Grand Valley State who saw Miller as the ideal fit at quarterback for their spread system. The Lakers' loyalty to Miller and their persistence paid off last week when Miller gave then a verbal committment.
Of his decision to come to Allendale, Miller said "Grand Valley stayed there and had my back."
Now Miller will have theirs as he is fully healthy and ready to regain the form that had made him such a hit recruit in the first place. He is also ready to show the big time programs they made a mistake when they chose to stop recruiting him.
