LB Christian Miller of Spring Valley has been on the road of late to further check out the schools he’s most interested in. Last Friday he was at Georgia for Dawg Night and this week he spent two days on a visit to Alabama. He will go to Florida next week for Friday Night Lights. Those are the three he’s most focused on at this point though Tennessee and UCLA are also in the mix according to his father, former USC and NFL linebacker Corey Miller. The senior Miller said each of those three has a strong selling point to his son. “At Georgia, he likes coach Grantham and that (3-4) defense,” Miller said. “Alabama, he likes coach Saban and they are a 3-4 team sixty percent of the time. He has a good relationship with coach Rumph, and they have sound academics and championships. And there’s the players they send to the NFL. He’s impressed with the development of their players, especially linebackers. And at Florida, coach Lawing is the big thing there. He likes coach Muschamp, too. They have the same kind of defense as Alabama and the same kind of player development.” Miller said he expects his son to make a decision before his season starts in August.
Class of 2015 ATH Jonathan Sutton (6-1 216) of Swansea has several early offers to include USC and Clemson. Sutton plays linebacker and running back for his school. “I don’t really know which position I am being recruited to play,” he said. “Right now, I’m only a junior and I play on both sides of the ball.” His other offers include NC State, Appalachian State, Florida State, North Carolina and UCLA. “I don’t have any favorites and am going to consider all of the schools,” said Sutton. He is also receiving interest from Maryland and Ohio. Sutton recently attended camps at Clemson and UNC. “Clemson is a very organized school and they like keeping everyone together,” he said. “They don’t like leaving anyone behind.” He heads to Florida next week for a visit. Sutton plans to visit USC soon with some of his friends. Though he does not have any favorites, he did say, “I’ve always liked Florida State. That was my childhood team.” As a junior he totaled 75 tackles, 21 for loss and eight forced fumbles. On offense he compiled over 200 yards and six touchdowns.
DB Quincy Wilson of Fort Lauderdale plans to visit USC, Tennessee and Florida before he makes a decision. He wants to make his commitment in the first two weeks of August. Ohio State, Southern Cal and Louisville are three others on his list.
