Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch athlete Chris Miller didn't need much time to think about the offer he got on Tuesday from Oregon State.
Miller was called by assistant coach Keith Heyward and told the news by Heyward. Miller returned the favor with some news of his own.
"It was pretty quick how it all happened," said Miller. "They called me,
we talked and in the conversation, they offered and I committed. I talked with
Coach Heyward and Coach (Mark) Banker and I'll talk to Coach (Mike) Riley this
Miller plans to take an official visit to Corvallis in the coming weeks.
"I haven't been there yet but I'm probably going to go after my season," said Miller.
Miller said the Oregon State coaches gave him an idea of what position he'll play.
"They want me as a safety," said Miller. "I play running back and in the
slot, but they want me to play safety."
Miller said that despite hearing from a number of schools, even if they offered,
it would be hard to pass on the Beavers.
"They were the first to offer me and that means a lot," said Miller.
Diamond Ranch is 4-4 on the season and has a bye this weekend.
"We need to win our next two games to get into the playoffs," said Miller.
