Bowling Green isn't the only Mid-American Conference program to land a top junior college prospect from California this week. On Monday Frank Solich and the Ohio Bobcats added a verbal pledge from Mt. San Jacinto cornerback London Miller soon after the west coast standout visited Athens to get better acquainted with the OU staff and campus.
"That was the first time I've been to Ohio. Being on that campus for the first time, and the people I talked to and all the stories I heard, it seems to be a great community that cares about each other and the future of it's students and athletes. Being from California and seeing the brick buildings and roads was all new to me. I thought it was beautiful." The 6'0, 180-pound Miller stated to Hustle Belt.
Solich, and staff played a huge role in Miller choosing Ohio over heavy interest from the likes of Colorado, New Mexico, Purdue, and Utah State.
"They are a great group of coaches that really showed me they cared about my well being. I could tell that it was genuine." He said of the OU staff. "They often called me and actually tried to get to know me rather than just talking football. All-in-all they really showed the utmost interest in me and I truly believe that I will have a great career with the Bobcats."
This season Mt. San Jacinto finished the year off with a final record of 5-5. One of the leaders on the defensive ball for the Eagles, Miller, who spent time at Division II Humboldt State before Mt. San Jacinto, accounted for over 40 total tackles and two interceptions as a sophomore.
