Even though ESPNU 150 Watch List offensive lineman Dorian Miller (Metuchen, N.J./Metuchen) hasn't completed his junior year, he knows plenty about the recruiting process.
Dorian's brother, Dejuan Miller, had double-digit scholarship offers in 2007, when we ranked him as the No. 1 wide receiver in the country. Dejuan completed his senior season at Oklahoma last year.
“I watched him go through everything,” Dorian said. “I know I'm definitely going to take all five official visits. I'm not going to toy around with anybody with those signing day gimmicks – that's not my style.”
Dorian will likely end up with double-digit scholarship offers as well. He currently has offers from six schools: Boston College, Connecticut, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and South Florida.
He's planning to attend a junior day at Penn State on Saturday, and a junior day at Connecticut next month. He said Michigan, Miami, West Virginia and South Carolina are among the other schools showing interest.
Although he also plays defensive tackle and defensive end in high school, Dorian said he expects to play offense in college.
“Most schools see me as a guard or center,” he said. “I'm looking for a school that has my major (history). I also want to make sure they support the kids academically. The other thing is I'll obviously have to have a good relationship with the coaches.
“I know it's a cliché, but when I feel comfortable – that's when I'll commit. Right now I'm wide open.”
