Miller opens up his recruitment

A day after Florida sent assistant Jeff Choate to see Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley linebacker Christian Miller, the four-star prospect decided to back off his pledge to the Gators on Friday.

Miller told 247Sports’ J.C. Shurburtt the following via text message:

“Just wanted to let you know I'm opening back up my recruitment. I'd like to get to visit some schools that I wasn't able to see earlier in the process as well as figure out which place is best for me and my future, not just football.”

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Miller originally committed to the Gators back on February 16 during a junior day. Miller originally stated a big reason for selecting the Gators was his relationship with new Florida assistant Brad Lawing, who coach Miller’s father, Corey, at South Carolina.

247Sports ranks Miller as the nation’s No. 89 prospect overall and the No. 5 outside linebacker. Many feel Alabama is a school making a strong push to land the U.S. Army All-American.
