Highland Springs linebacker Jarrell Miller , fresh off being officially named to the 2006 Army All-American team, made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech this past weekend. He discussed the experience and looks ahead to this weekend, when he plans on making an official visit to the University of Virginia.
Miller, who stayed in Blacksburg on Saturday and Sunday, noted one particular highlight of the weekend.
“The walk was the hypest part,” Miller said. “All the recruits were giving high-fives to everybody. It seemed like there were 1,000 fans there. They were all saying ‘come to Tech’ and I saw a sign with my name on it. It was real hyped.”
Miller had the chance to talk with the Virginia Tech coaches as well.
“I talked to Coach Beamer and Coach Hite,” Miller said. “They were just telling me how much they want me up there and they were hoping I’m doing well in school. They said they’d like to play me in their defense.”
This weekend, Jarrell makes an official visit to the University of Virginia. He has already taken an official to Tennessee and has officials planned with Florida on the weekend of November 25th, a mid-week official visit to Virginia Tech on December 7th and UNC on the weekend of December 9th.
“The official visit to Tennessee was real fun and I’d like to see the same things at Virginia,” Miller said. “Of course I’ll talk with the coaches, but I also want to see the things I haven’t seen. I want to see the academic side of things.”
Miller will announce his commitment at the Army All-American Bowl in January.
Highland Springs defeated Henrico 10-0 last Friday. Miller led the Springers defense, which held a solid Henrico squad to minus-13 yards rushing and only 131 total yards. Highland Springs (7-2) faces its biggest contest of the season this week, taking on Varina (9-0). The winner earns a playoff berth. The loser goes home.
