On Tuesday, Blue Springs High School (MO) running back, Darrian Miller, made the decision to de-commit from the Jayhawks after speaking with Kansas Head Coach Turner Gill. Miller originally committed to the Jayhawks in early March after Miller made a trip to Lawrence. Miller loved everything about that visit saying, “It felt like home,” shortly after his commitment. Those feelings haven’t changed for Miller, but like most high school seniors to be, he wants to make sure that he is making the best decision for him.
“There’s a good chance that I still go to there,” said Miller. “I just want to make sure it’ the place for me,” added Miller about Kansas.
Miller said that his conversation went well on Tuesday. In fact, according to Miller, Coach Gill understood what Miller is going through.
“He understood,” Miller said of Coach Gill. “Maybe KU is the place for me. I just want to take this year and see how they do. Their tendencies on offense and style of offense. Coach Gill said that was good for me to do,” added Miller.
Schools will surely line-up in hopes of gaining interest from the Missouri Player of the Year, but according to Miller, the right fit is the important thing to him and his family.
“I’m looking anywhere that I can be a good fit,” said Miller.
Miller added that Minnesota and Iowa are two schools that he’s sure he will take a look at. Arkansas and Ole Miss, the school he grew up being a fan of, are two more schools that he would be intersted in hearing from.
As for the Jayhawks, Miller made it clear that Kansas is still very much in the running and that he could certainly be committed there once again. By taking some time to evaluate the Kansas program this season, the first under Gill, Miller believes he will be able to determine if Kansas is the right fit.
