College coaches love big athletic defensive tackles and that's exactly what we saw when we watched Spartanburg DT Rashaad Miller against Greenwood earlier this season.

Come inside to learn about this fast rising sleeper on SCPrepNation.com!

Rashaad Miller Profile

To be quite honest we initially went to the Greenwood-Spartanburg game to check out Spartanburg RB Tavien Feaster and Greenwood CB Kaleb Chalmers and WR Markeyvious Adams. While those prospects played well we noticed 2014 Spartanburg defensive tackle Rashaad Miller. Disrupting and making plays all night we quickly took a liking to the big fella making plays all over the field. We caught up with Miller recently to shed some light on his recruitment and where things stand currently.

For Miller he's looking for an opportunity to take his game to the next level and continue his education. From what we saw against Greenwood he definitely has the talent to do just that.

The 6'2 320 pound prospect says he's already hearing from some schools but he's open to hearing from more in the near future.

"So far I've heard from Georgia Southern, North Carolina Central, North Carolina A&T, and North Greenville. I'd love to hear from Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia too."

"Georgia Southern says they want to see my early season senior film and if they like what they see that they would offer me. Coach Miller says that North Carolina Central has shown a lot of interest too and that an offer could be coming but I don't know all the details yet."

Asked to talk about where he feels his strengths are at defensive tackle Miller replied, "My endurance and my ability to take on double and triple teams throughout the game."

He said that creating separation and speed are the two areas he'd like to improve upon the most prior to reaching the next level.

Miller has camped at various schools and he says he did very well at Clemson's camp and that head coach Dabo Swinney informed him and his family that he "loved" what he saw of Miller during his time there.

Playing in what many call the toughest region in the state, Region 2-AAAA, Miller earned All-Region honors last year as a junior. He also was named the team's most outstanding defensive lineman last year too.

This offseason the Vikings got a new head coach in former Byrnes coach Chris Miller. With their season off to a fast and winning start how have things changed with Miller at the helm?

"The confidence and intensity levels are so high now. It's exciting around here. Everyone is buying into Coach Miller's system."

The younger Miller is hoping to continue his strong play which should lead to some scholarship offers before too long if he continues to wreak havoc on the interior for the Vikings as they appear primed to make a playoff run this season.

SCPrepNation.com will have more updates with Miller and we've also got early senior season video highlights of Miller in action coming soon so stay tuned!

NOTE: Spartanburg suffered their first loss against Byrnes 35-3 but Miller says he faced many double and triple teams throughout the night against the Rebels.
