New schools showing interest in Miller

With the conclusion of winter break, school is back in session for for Dallas (TX) Carter running back Anthony Miller, but while academics took a short hiatus, his recruitment did not. While no new offers have been extended his way, two new schools have entered the picture.

"Purdue has came in, but they haven't offered me yet," said Miller. "I think Texas Tech may also be close to offering.

"Purdue is a pretty good team, they're pretty good every year. Texas Tech had a really good year this season. You know us boys from Carter really like [Michael Crabtree] and enjoy seeing him do his thing."

Crabtree, the winner of the past two Biletnikoff Awards given to the best wide receiver in college football, graduated from Carter High School in 2006.

Miller, who currently holds offers from Colorado State, Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech, UTEP and Tulsa, still isn't able to name a favorite on his list and says he probably won't be able to until he takes a few official visits, something he hasn't done yet.

"Right now I don't have a favorite, but with some of these new schools coming in, I may have to rearrange to see which one I may be more interested in. I'm just not sure yet."

Even with the new schools in the mix, Miller seems to still have his eye on Colorado State.

They're a good program and I feel like they really fit my running style and I want to go somewhere that can do just that, fit my running style."

Miller also added that even though CSU has commitments from Lou Greenwood, ranked as the 41st overall running back in the class of 2009, as well as junior college transfer Leonard Mason, that does not necessarily turn him away from becoming a Ram.

"If I get redshirted then I know it will work out for the best. If I can get that one year under my belt then I know my freshman year... I'll be ready."
