A trip to a Big East school is next on the list of things to do for Houston area forward Dwight Miller. The 6-foot-8, 220-pound power forward from St. Pius High School says he is looking forward to the trip but might wait until the spring to sign with a college.
Miller is visiting Rutgers on Thursday. The trip to New Jersey is his first official visit of the year.
"I'm very excited to get up there because they've been recruiting me ever since (RBK U) and I've been able to develop a good relationship with them. I've gotten to know them from talking to them on the telephone," Miller said.
"I'm looking forward to seeing the environment there and seeing the facilities and interacting with their students and how they like the school there. I think I'm going to see their football game. I'm looking forward to watching the game and seeing how their fans support their team. Then practice, that will be good to see how they run their practice and see their team play. I wouldn't mind seeing how I would be living on my own in my own environment and things like that."
Miller said he might visit Illinois in a couple of weeks but says "nothing is final yet with any one else. It is one step at a time."
The three-star forward said he remains open to all comers.
"I still want to look at what everyone has before I decide on picking a school. I will probably sign late," Miller said. "You never know if something comes along that you might like more.
"I've had four different and new schools call me in the last couple of days. Mostly Big East schools."
Pitt, St. John's, Temple and Arkansas have all inquired in the last week, Miller said.
The Bahamian native has a big game to start his season as he takes on Greg Monroe, the number one player in the nation, in the Texas Jamboree in Houston after Thanksgiving.
