Highland Springs (VA) linebacker Jarrell Miller , one of the top overall prospects in the state of Virginia, continues along in his recruiting process towards his decision date of January 7th (at the Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, TX).

If Miller does not make the trip to Florida this weekend, he indicated he may not be able to visit there at all. Asked what the positives were about the two schools he knows he will visit, he answered…

“For UNC, The whole school system there is nice,” Miller said. “There is a whole bunch of things I like about them. My former teammate, Wyatt Hicks, goes there and he’s a real cool dude. He tells me how it is. They have country coaches, so it’s
