"I haven't been out to Washington State yet, but I definitely want to," Jimmy Miller said. "They were one of the first schools to start recruiting me and I have a good relationship with all the coaches. Coach Greg Peterson (recruiting coordinator) was at my school during a practice during the spring and I guess he liked what he saw..."

Jimmy Miller, the 6-foot-3, 285-pound, three-star offensive guard from Mullen High School in Denver, Colo., has four offers now that he has received a ride from Washington State, as previously reported.

Miller, ranked No. 58 in the Midlands by Scout.com, also has offers from San Diego State, Colorado State and the Air Force. "There's no clear favorite right now," Miller said. "There's something unique and positive about all of them."

Although he denies a favorite, Miller likes Washington State, San Diego State, Colorado State, Air Force, Nebraska and TCU. That's the order that he mentioned the schools.

"I haven't been out to Washington State yet, but I definitely want to. They were one of the first schools to start recruiting me and I have a good relationship with all the coaches. Coach Greg Peterson (recruiting coordinator) was at my school during a practice during the spring and I guess he liked what he saw."

Miller has already attended the TCU camp and says he doesn't plan on going to any others. "The camp went well," he said. "They said they only have two scholarship offers for offensive lineman this year and I think I'm near the top of the list, so we'll see."

Growing up, Miller said he always followed Nebraska. "They've been one of my favorites for a long time now," Miller said. "They are basically a dream school and they really stand out. I was gonna visit them earlier this month but wasn't able to make it.

"I know that Nebraska has a pretty strong o-line class already, but they are looking for a center and I think I could fill that void."

The only other schools that Miller has already visited are the Air Force and Colorado State.

"Colorado State is a good in-state program with a lot to offer," he said. "They are only one hour away and that's a good thing for my family. I know a lot about them and they've been on top before and I know they can do it again."

Miller says he'd like to make his decision before the start of the season. "I'm thinking about taking some unofficial visits this summer because I'd like to make my decision before the season starts," he said. "I need to get out and see some schools. I won't commit unless I have already visited a school.

"I want to get a good feel for the school and the coaches," Miller said. "I want to make sure the school has a lot to offer. I want to play for a program that is on the rise and will be good in the next few years."

He reports a 3.3 core GPA and a 1450 three-part SAT.
