Recruiting: Swanson Miller Makes His Decision
Miller said he decided he would sign with Oklahoma State – joining Butler County teammates Beau Johnson and Maurice Gray who also are expected to sign with the Cowboys on Wednesday – after visiting both OSU and Texas Tech this past weekend. He spent Friday and Saturday in Stillwater, before flying to Lubbock, Texas for a Sunday-Monday visit.
"I just felt Oklahoma State is the best place for me right now," said Miller, who had 76 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 4 fumbles caused and a fumble recovery this past season. "They just did everything right as far as recruiting me. When I went there I found that the school was nice, and they really need help at my position.
"There really wasn't too much difference (between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech), I just know that Oklahoma State is looking for some players at certain positions, and one of those positions is my position."
Miller said he, Johnson and Gray will enroll for the spring semester and participate in spring practice at OSU.
He hopes to make an immediate impact for Tim Beckman's defense. "I plan on going in and playing my position and leading by example. One thing we did at Butler was play at what we called chaos tempo, and that's my goal at Oklahoma State is to get everybody playing at the same tempo and was one family on defense."
Miller said he didn't sign with OSU to sit the bench, and hopes to earn a starting berth by the time the season opens Aug. 30 at Washington State.
"Yeah, I plan on going in there and taking control," he said. "I'm just going to do what I can to help the defense and the team be successful."
