One of Florida's best WR prospects
Ricardo Miller didn't take long to put his name on the recruiting map. In his first season as a starter in 2008, Miller put up excellent numbers while catching the ball from Coiorado State-bound quarterback Nico Ranieri. He finished the season with 34 catches for 615 yards and eight touchdowns. "Last year was my first year starting so I really wanted to go out and make a name for myself, show people what I could do," Miller said. Miller, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, quickly emerged as a major college prospect thanks to his rare physical package at the wide receiver position. He landed several early offers and even made an early commitment. "I committed to Michigan early on," he said. "They were my top team. I have family in Michigan and I always liked the wide receivers they produced with guys like Braylon Edwards and Amani Toomer. The atmosphere, the coaches, and how they win is what I really liked about them." Miller will be even close to the Michigan program in the fall. "I'll be moving up there over the summer and I'll be living about 10 minutes away from the school," he said. "That'll be good." Despite his commitment to the Wolverines, Miller said he still plans on checking out what other schools have to offer. "I'm committed but I'm still open and will take my other visits just to make sure," he said. "The ones I like are Tennessee, Stanford, Miami, and LSU. All four of them have already offered me, too." The only in-state school on his list of favorites right now is Miami and Miller talked more about his interest in the Hurricanes. "I just like their history there," he said. "It's in a good location and I really like the wide receivers they've produced out of there. And I like the swagger that they play with. I plan on getting down to check them out. Coach Hill offered me a little while back." While the other schools seem to have an uphill battle to face in chasing Michigan, Miller talked about what it'll take. "I'll be looking at the depth chart and what my opportunities will be," he said. "And then I'll see the coaches and how I get along with them." Inside the classroom, Miller claims a 3.4 core GPA and scored a 16 on his first ACT.
