Miller Picks Oklahoma

Jonathon Miller

Oklahoma pulled in their third commitment of the 2009 recruiting class when Texas running back Jonathon Miller has decided to accept an offer from the Sooners. Miller was receiving strong interest from Arkansas, Texas, Texas A&M, and LSU before accepting the OU offer…

Oklahoma picked up two stud running backs from the "Lone Star State" in 2008, and they are back down in the state rooting out the top talent once again in 2009.

Jonathon Miller, a 6-foot-0, 180-pound running back from Namaan Forest High in Garland, Texas was receiving plenty of interest form schools nationwide, but he pulled the trigger with a commitment to Oklahoma this afternoon.

"I have offers from Kansas, Arizona, and Oklahoma," Miller said. "But I just committed to Oklahoma today. I just like their program and I wanted to stay close to home."

Many players would be tentative about coming in to compete with the likes of Justin Johnson and Jermie Calhoun, but by judging Miller's remarks it looks like he is itching to come in and compete at the highest level.

"Everything was good about them especially the coaches and the depth chart. Plus, they are always a BCS-level team," Miller further explained about his reasoning behind selecting OU.

Miller, who grew up a big fan of Adrian Peterson, burst on to the scene in 2007, running for 1984 yards and 25 touchdowns during his junior season. Recommended Stories
