Lee's Summit (MO) West High School has become a hotbed for college coaches looking for D1 prospects over the past few years with prospects like Evan Boehm last year and Nick Ramirez and Jamone Boyd this year getting heavily recruited.
West appears to have even more talent on hand, including 2013 CB/S Brandon Miller 6'1"180 4.54 forty.
We spoke with Miller recently to get the latest on his recruitment and summer plans.
"South Dakota St, Tulsa, New Mexico, Memphis, and Kansas State are showing the most interest so far," said Miller about his recruitment. "I'm more sure than not that Memphis and South Dakota St will offer down at there camps if I perform well... Tulsa, and New Mexico I think want to see me more in person.. But I'm hoping to get more Big 12 schools involved, and hopefully Missouri when I camp with them next week."
Miller is about to hit the camp circuit starting this weekend to help jump start his recruitment, and show college coaches his ability in person.
"I head to Tulsa this Saturday, Iowa State on Sunday, Memphis next week,and South Dakota State later next month all for sure.I also plan to camp with Kansas, Kansas State, and Mizzou on June 10th for their one day camp in Liberty for sure here in the area too,"said Miller.
Miller, who tested with a 4.54 forty time, 4.16 shuttle, 32" vertical jump and pushed 185lbs 17 times at the NUC combine in Kansas City last month, spoke about his hopes for more interest from Missouri.
"Missouri is a great program, and I have attended junior day there and been there a few times. They have shown some interest in me, but from my personal experience with the Tigers, I felt like they wanted to see my 40 time improve, which it has from last year! from a 4.62 to a 4.54. So, hopefully I can impress them at camp on the 10th."
The hard-hitting, playmaking Miller played safety last season, but will be primarily playing cornerback this year because of him coverage skills. He will likely play safety in college, but is willing to do whatever it takes for his team to be successful.
"I think I'm switching to CB this year due to the lack of experienced coverage our team holds. But as I ask coaches the all say the see me as a true Safety. We had a great 7 on 7 session today. I'll move to the main CB spot covering teams #1 guy and also play the backup Safety spot," said Miller.
