Miller makes his call

Just moments ago on RivalsRadio Metuchen, N.J. four-star wide receiver Dejuan Miller made the choice between his long-time top three, Oklahoma, Penn State, and in-state Rutgers. The 6-foot-6, 207-pound receiver has made repeated trips to each of his top three over the last few months and on Thursday was finally ready to announce a public decision.

"Rivals Radio quote here," Miller said on RivalsRadio with Bill King.

The rumor had been going around for a while that Miller had told the Sooner coaches he was coming, but he had gone quiet over the past few weeks. He took some time to clear his head but admits that he had let the coaches know of his intentions early on.

The cause for the delay was the conclusion of a track season that saw him finish second in the 400-meters and fourth in the 200. Wednesday signaled the conclusion of state competition as the 'meet of champions' took place with the best runners from every class, a meet that saw Miller finished sixth in the 200.

"I broke the school record (Wednesday), I ran a 21.5. That was handheld, the automatic time was 21.7-seconds," he said, obviously pleased. "At State I was favored to win the 400 and 200, but I had a bad start in the 200, and in the 400 I got second with a 48.3-second time.

"In the 200, I was too amped up. It was an event I was favored to win, and then I got fourth. I'm normally very calm; I have a chance to redeem myself at nationals in a few weeks."
