Jack Miller is a 6'4.5", 245 pound defensive end from St. John's Jesuit in Toledo (OH), who appears to rely on football I.Q. as a defensive player.
"Defensively, I bring a lot to the table," Miller told Scout.com. "My technique is really what helps me. I can rush the pass real well, and I can stop the run. I'm a bigger, heavier defensive end which helps stopping the run. I can apply a lot of pressure to the quarterback."
That technique and pressure definitely applied in his junior season, as he racked up some impressive numbers from the end spot.
"It definitely went real well. I had 12 sacks on the year, and I'm not sure about how many tackles, but I know it was significant. Towards the end of the year, teams just ran away from me. I thought I showed my skill set."
Those numbers and tenacity has caught the eye of the Miller's closest Division-I program. The Toledo Rockets are Miller's first and only offer up to this point, but several other schools are starting to turn up the heat.
"Toledo came into school one day, and basically said it looks like you can play at a higher level, and said if I wanted to stay local they'd always have a spot for me. As far as bigger schools, Northwestern and Boston College seem to be the biggest two. I was at Boston College's camp last spring. I went to Northwestern for a game, and Pat Fitzgerald pulled me aside and said we're real high on you and we'll be talking in the spring. I'm getting some interest from Michigan State and Ohio State as well."
As his recruiting continues to rise, Miller has plans for the early spring and summer, as he starts preparing for his senior year. Miller will attend a plethora of camps, and more specifically, one of the elite camps in his home state.
"I'm going to try to get to some school camps, and I think OSU is going to invite me to their invite only camp. I'll be trying to go to as many of those as I can, and recruiting is kind of taking off right now, so we'll see where it goes."
In the meantime, Miller will just be focusing on his strength and conditioning, as he trains with the person who helped out another Toledo St. John's Jesuit star in 2009.
"I'm training with one of the top trainers in Toledo, and he trained Jack Mewhort last year. I'm just working out hard with him until next year. I decided not to play basketball this year either. I'm just training hard and getting ready for my senior season."
