Miller & Trojans Having Great Season

An update with 2009 Northwestern LB Jerel Miller. Miller has become a hot commodity in the recruiting world for the 09' class and he's hearing from schools in the SEC and ACC. Come inside for the latest regarding his recruitment, season, and visits thus far.

Northwestern High put a 33-0 victory on the board last night against Fort Mill and that score emphasizes the great deal of talent the Trojans have on both sides of the ball but especially the defense. The leader of that defense is 2009 prospect LB Jerel Miller. SCPrepNation.com caught up with Miller earlier this past week to talk about his season and recruitment.

It's been a fantastic season for the Trojans of Northwestern High School. Jerel Miller says so, "Yes we're really coming along good, we had a huge win over Clover where we lead 26-0 at the half. We've got a tough road ahead and we could get beat by any team on our schedule so we've got to continue to work very hard." That mindset has worked well for Miller and his teammates apparently. He said while there is some satisfaction with his play this year there still remains room for improvement. "Yes im happy but like my coach always says I can get better so that means I've just got to keep working hard."

Miller talked about some of his best performances so far this year. "I think the last game vs Lancaster was a big game for me I had 16 tackles, caused fumble, and had 2 pass breakups. I played well against Clover also racking up 20 tackles in that game."

So far on the season (not including last night's victory over Fort Mill) Miller has 75 tackles.

On the recruiting side his strong play continues to bring a slew of colleges in to watch him and hitting him up hard on the recruiting front. Miller says he's currently hearing from South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, Florida, and Tennessee.

"I have a lot more schools that I have talked to but I hear from those schools the most. South Carolina is probably recruiting me the hardest right now out of those schools but I hear from so many schools right now it's hard to say. I just know that I love the Gamecocks and I'm hoping for an offer and Clemson is still right there too."

We asked Miller if he had made any visits this year and he replied, "Yes I went to the South Carolina-SC State game and it was fun. I love coach Nix and the staff there at USC. On Oct. 13 I plan on going to Clemson for their game vs Central Michigan. I might get up to the North Carolina State-Georgia Tech game too."
