HD Woodson (Washington, DC) promises to have another strong year on the defensive side of the ball. Theodore Miller will be a big part of this defense, as he possesses shut down ability from the cornerback position.
Woodson defensive coordinator Wayne Johnson says there are many things to like about Miller, which many schools have already noticed.
“Theodore has the size and speed combination you need at corner,” said Johnson, who is also the recruiting coordinator for HD Woodson. “He is 6-2, 170 pounds, runs around 4.4 to 4.5 in the 40 yard dash, and has a 38” vertical leap. You don’t find too many corners with that kind of athleticism. He is probably the most athletic cornerback I’ve ever coached.
“First and foremost, however, Theodore is a quality young man first, a student second, and a football player third. He has already qualified on the SAT’s with a 1,060 score. He has a 2.5 core GPA as well.”
Miller’s athletic ability is enhanced by his competitive spirit. Eager to take on any challenge, he went head-to head with Gonzaga wide receiver Doug Dutch this summer during a 7-on-7 tournament.
“I wanted to face him,” said Miller. “The whole time I told people I wanted him. I had heard he was a great player…the best in the area. I wanted to find out for myself. He was good, but I did really well.”

“Dutch didn’t catch any passes while Theodore was covering him,” said Johnson. “Theodore loves to compete, especially against the guys with the big names. I’m not taking anything away from Dutch – he was a very athletic player with good technique. Theodore just played very well against him.”
According to Johnson, Miller has received around 15 scholarship offers with more on the way.
“Theodore has offers from 15 schools,” said Johnson. “Tennessee, Maryland, West Virginia, Marshall, and a number of I-AA schools have offered. Virginia Tech has said they will offer. Miami (FL) is also talking seriously to him.”
Maryland and Virginia Tech are the only schools Miller has seen this year. He wants to take several official visits before making a decision. Currently, one team stands out as his favorite.
“Virginia Tech is my favorite,” said Miller, who attended the Nike Camp in Blacksburg earlier this year. “When I went down to Virginia Tech, it was just different. I love the environment. There’s not too much...
