Miller preparing for season

DeAndre Miller is still firm to Arizona. Read on for an update on his summer, expectations, and more.

Arizona received a commitment from Buckeye (Ariz.) Union High School linebacker DeAndre Miller in the middle of June. A month has passed and he is still excited about being a Wildcat.

Miller, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound defender, laid low during the summer, not attending any camps. Instead he opted to work out with his high school team and get ready for the upcoming season.

"I think we're going to be pretty good this year," Miller said. "We're all out there working hard. We all have talent that can come together and we work together."

During the summer, Miller was set to work on specific skills, but eventually decided that he wanted to improve his overall game instead.

"I found that every skill needs improvement," he said. "You're never good enough. You just have to keep working."

Improving is something that Miller is always thinking about. He still feels that he isn't quite ready for the upcoming season.

"Right now I'm just running, lifting, and getting in shape for next season," he said.

Even after his commitment to Arizona, he is still hearing from other schools. He wouldn't name any of the schools that are attempting to sway his commitment to Arizona, but did say that he wouldn't be taken by any of the suitors.

"I'm really committed right now, so I'm not really interested in any other schools," Miller said. "There's some schools still trying to talk to me, but I'm not going to name any names.

"There's no interest in any other schools. I love Arizona."

Miller has also kept track of the Wildcats' recruiting class over the past few weeks and is quickly becoming impressed with his future teammates. "I've looked at a couple guys that committed and they're good," Miller said. "I think we are going to have great year for 2013."
