Miller Opts To Stay By the Bay

Archbishop Mitty (San Jose, Ca) tight end Anthony Miller spent a day in Berkeley at Cal’s summer camp last week and came away with a verbal commitment to the Bears.

“Cal’s been my favorite for awhile,” said Miller. “I’ve watched them when I’ve had a chance. The combination of some of the best academics and athletics in a team that’s close is what stood out for me. They’re a good program.”

The versatile Miller already possesses D1 size, strength and speed at 6-3 ½/247, with 4.76 forty speed and 18 reps of 185 on the bench, with a max of 300.

Though starring on offense, Miller also had 70 tackles, 4 ½ sacks and 10 tackles for loss at outside linebacker for Mitty.

With the Monarchs being primarily a running team, Miller had most of his impact on offense leading the charge blocking, while adding 12 catches for 106 yards and one td.

Even though Miller didn’t see a lot of passes in Mitty’s offense, the Cal staff saw what they needed to see of Miller in his time on campus as he stood out in camp at TE.

Cal Tight Ends/Special Teams Coach Pete Alamar and Wide Receivers Coach Dan Ferrigno have taken the lead in Williams’ recruitment to date.

“They see me as kind of a combo tight end, like their current starter (Craig Stevens), said Miller. “I have good receiver skills and my blocking’s pretty strong, too.”

The Bears won out for Miller’s services over Nebraska, ASU, Oregon and local school San Jose State.
