Miller Looks Very Impressive

Scout.com broke down Jonny Miller's junior highlights this week and came away very impressed with what the Denver, Co., signal caller showed on film. He is currently rated a three-star, but you can definitely see four-star potential in him from his junior season.

I'm not one for hyperbole, but Mullen High School product Jonny Miller is the best quarterback recruit I've seen Syracuse get since I've been with Scout.com and I think the 6-foot-2, 200-pound signal caller could turn into a steal for the Orange.

Miller is already running a pro-style offense in high school and has experience in both the shotgun and under center. The offense he is running is much more complex than most high school offenses and he executes it very well. The first thing that really stands out with Miller are his feet. He drops back from center very, very quickly, moves around the pocket to avoid the rush very well and can get outside of the pocket and make plays on the run if he needs to. He looks to be a very solid athlete.

As a passer, Miller does a lot of things well. He uses his entire body when throwing the ball, something most kids at his level don't. By stepping into his throws and using his lower body he's able to get more velocity on his passes and throw a better ball to his receivers. He doesn't have a cannon for an arm, but on film he shows consistent accuracy on long balls. He also does a good job placing the ball where only his receivers can catch it and is generally very accurate. While he'll make safe passes, he also will give his receivers chances to make plays, especially in the red zone and has the arm and accuracy to make things happen there.

Miller has a hitch and a bit of an odd delivery, but those aren't concerns at all. The biggest issue I saw that needed to be corrected is that he consistently stares down the receiver he's targeting on plays. He'll need to work on that, but otherwise, Miller looks like a very good prospect.
