Lawton (Okla.) High School quarterback Cody Miller finally made a trip to Denton, Texas Saturday to…
Miller at a Standstill
Miller tore his ACL late in the 3rd quarter of game 3 this season, and since surgery Oct. 1, has been focused on getting his leg back. "The recovery's not long at all," he said. "I should be back (on the field) by January." Miller finished his senior season completing 24 of 54 passes for 470 yards and 3 touchdowns, while running in 5 additional touchdowns. Miller said, luckily, he was able to compile a quality highlight reel with footage from the first two and a half games- and from two preseason scrimmages. With that highlight reel- and a solid 2009 season- Miller said he has attracted attention from Arizona, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Tulsa. He added that Marshall, Toledo and Ohio recently entered the picture. So what's attracting these coaching staffs? Miller guesses, "My playing ability, and my arm." When asked about his longest throw, he said, "I can't really tell you the farthest I've thrown it, but one (throw) that sticks out was my 55-yard pass on the run- and that was my junior year." As of now, Miller said no official visits have been scheduled. "Honestly, the process has slowed down," said Miller. "I'm just taking my time." "Toledo is still hard on me though. For them to put that much interest in me, I'm putting them No. 1 right now." "Toledo's not a big school, but they're No. 1 in their division," he added. What is Miller looking for in a school exactly? "Playing time's a big deal for me. I want to play as much as I can. Also, will I be able to get along with the coaching staff?" He said academics are also important. "I want to major in some kind of history. Maybe look into coaching, too." Miller said he is sure the recruiting process will pick back up following completion of his final season. For now, he's focused on preparing his 8-0 Lawton Wolverines for playoffs- which, in Oklahoma, begin in three weeks.
