Bassett (VA) offensive lineman Andrew Miller has picked up another official scholarship offer for football, while another school is interested in having him play two sports on the next level. The 6-5, 275-pound senior discussed the latest developments in his recruitment as well as when a college decision could come.
At the beginning of last week, Miller had two offers on the table – one from the University of Virginia for football and the other from Virginia Tech for wrestling. By the end of the week, Wake Forest had extended an official offer for football and Virginia Tech’s football coaches had come up with an interesting proposition as well. The talented interior lineman visited Wake on Thursday and dropped off film for the coaches to see. The next day, he landed an offer.
“It is definitely good,” Miller said of the Wake Forest offer. “I like them. My sister went to school there and she loved it, so I was happy to get it.”
At Virginia Tech, Miller would have the opportunity to wrestle and play football.

“I don’t know much about [Virginia Tech situation] right now. I haven’t talked to [the Virginia Tech football coaches] much about it.”
On April 12th, Miller attended the University of Virginia’s Spring Game. It was the third time he had visited Charlottesville since last summer.
“Virginia is a real good school and everything,” said Miller, who attended a lineman camp at UVa last summer and a junior day in February. “They have a real good program.
“I talked to Coach Borbs a little bit and I also talked to the weightlifting coach some. They were just saying hi and seeing how I was doing. They said they wanted me to come down and be a Wahoo.”
No more college visits have been set for the near future, but Miller does plan to attend camp at Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest this late spring/summer. Asked if a college decision could come soon, he replied, “I’m not going...
