2011 tight end adds offers

Andover (Mass.) Andover tight end Brian Miller is one of the top prospects in the class of 2011 at his position. He already is closing in on double digit offers and it does not look like the offers are about to slow down.

One school that has not offered yet, but is showing interest in the big tight end is Syracuse.

"Syracuse has shown me some interest. I have received some letters from them. I met the coach last year," Miller said. "I have not followed them a lot this year, so I can't really speak about it, but I am sure it is a great program. I just do not know much about it."

Miller, 6-foot-4, 215 pounds was recently listed on Rivals.com's top 250 to watch list for the 2011 season and he thinks a few items stick out for him that make him the player he is.

"First of all I think it is my desire to be better and I work harder than most people. I just strive to work harder and be better all the time. With that I also feel that I am a good receiving tight end and I have worked hard to get where I am and my hard work has paid off."

When it comes down to picking a school there will be one factor that will be key in his recruitment.

"I am just looking at the overall feel, it is very important to me that the school I pick has a big family feel. That will be a big factor."

A handful of schools have already extended offers and he has also brought in some new offers as well.

"I have seven offers right now and Penn State just verbally offered and I am expecting that in the mail sometime soon. Michigan offered during football season and the rest of the Big Ten has been showing me a lot of interest. I have some other verbal offers from Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and Connecticut."

With offers in hand and new schools showing interest Miller does not have many visits set up at this time. The one visit he does have set up is to the in state school.

"I am going to go down to Boston College for the basketball game against North Carolina, but other than that I do not have anything set for the spring."

A commitment from Miller could come sooner rather than later, but he will not settle on a school until he is 100 percent because he will not de-commit from a program.

"I would possibly like to commit to a school in the spring, but really just when I feel comfortable with a school is when I will commit. I do not want to de-commit from any school I do not think that is a good thing. I am going to want to make sure the school that I pick is the school I will want to stay with."
