Miller Hearing from Big Ten

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Dec 14, 2011

Waterford (Wisc.) defensive tackle Brandon Miller is a good sized junior with BCS interest.

Waterford High's Brandon Miller has had two good varsity seasons that has him on the college radar. Last year, he was a 2nd Team All-Conference choice as a sophomore and this year, he made 1st Team All-County and All-Conference.

He also stands out in track and field, where throws shot and disc and is also a power lifter. All that rolled into a big frame.

"I'm 6'5, 290-lbs," he said. "I actually weighed myself yesterday. I primarily played defense. I played a little bit of offense, but I mostly played defensive tackle."

Miller has received a couple of letters for track and field, and is now hearing from two schools when it comes to football.

"Michigan State and Wisconsin. I went to the Madison camp and I went to the Midwest Preps combine," he said.

At Wisconsin's camp, Miller says he got better as a player, and feels he caught the eye of Badger coaches.

"I thought it went well and I learned a lot and improved on my technique there. I went as a junior and they moved me up. It was split it up into freshmen and sophomores, juniors and seniors. I was in the junior group, then they moved up to the senior group, so they must have liked something about me."

A lifelong resident of the Badger State, Miller says he'd like to hear more from Wisconsin, but is not limiting his options.

"I was born in same town I am now. I watched [Wisconsin], but I didn't really follow them. My parents watched them a lot. I'd love to hear more from Wisconsin, since I'm home grown and then also, pretty much any school I'd be interested in going to. I like to have my horizons wide."
