Lamar Miller, from Miami Killian HS, FL, is one of the top running backs in the Nation for the class…
5-star knows what he wants in a school
"Everything's going good right now," Lamar Miller said. "I'm getting a lot of offers and basically trying to enjoy the process." Miller, 5-foot-11 and 202 pounds, is a five-star prospect on Scout.com. With a tremendous blend of size and speed ("I ran a 4.32 last summer and hopefully can get into the 4.2's by the end of my senior season," he said), Miller ran for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns in a very tough district. He talked about what he brings to the table. "I have a lot of speed, power, quickness, and explosiveness," he said. "Some running backs have either speed or power. I have both and I think that's what makes me different." The talented running back prospect said his offer sheet is growing almost daily. "It's been hard to keep up with," he said. "I got UM, Florida, Texas, West Virginia, Central Florida, South Carolina, Rutgers, LSU, a bunch of them. I didn't know it would be quite like this so early." Miller has a top five already mapped out. "It would be Miami, LSU, Texas, West Virginia, and Florida," he said. "I don't have a top one that stands out above the rest right now. I'm taking a few visits this spring to see what I like the best. For camps, I'm not sure yet. I went to Friday Night Lights (at Florida) last year." Being from Miami, it's no surprise that Miller grew up following the hometown Hurricanes and it appears they'll be tough to beat. "I've always liked UM," he said. "A lot of people would like me to stay close to home. I like how UM runs the ball a lot and they have a great tradition at the running back position. I've talked to the coaches, been there before. It's a good place." Will Miami's recent commitment from fellow 5-star running back Bryce Brown matter to Miller? "No," he said. "He's a great player from what I hear but I know what I can do and I like competition." Miller, who is being recruited by coach Micheal Barrow at Miami, talked about some of the things he'll be looking for when it comes time to make a final decision. "I'll be looking at the graduation rates, how many players they send to the NFL, and basically how comfortable I feel there," he said. Miller plans on taking the test for the first time in May.
