We first wrote about Jarel Miller after the #1 Ranked Midwest Boom won two tournaments in one weekend in the talent rich Florida 7v7 circuit. Jarel is Boom’s go to receiver in the slot. Jarel was named to the Scout.com All-Tournament Team in the Pylon Orlando Super Regional. Two weeks later, Jarel confirmed his ability at the loaded Adidas National Invitational at Las Vegas.
Jarel Miller is an interesting study in the recruiting process! Jarel averaged more than 20 yards a reception on his way to a 2nd All District team performance for his Crowley High Eagles in the state of Texas. The 2017 7v7 season has been no different. Miller has double digit touchdowns and receptions in the last 2 tournaments alone.
The most amazing thing is that Miller has not received his first offer. Miller is going to be a steal for some school looking for talent over body type. Miller is going to make one college look like a genius and a list of colleges regretting they did not get him when they had the chance. From Nashville to Florida to Las Vegas, Miller has continued to get the best of a slew of 4 & 5 Star defenders! When we asked Miller about colleges showing interest, he said “…I am taking some visits this summer and some other schools have invited me to camp.” A camp is going to be a cake walk after Miller has spent the past several months lining up and winning against 4 and 5 star corner backs from Florida, to California. There is probably not many college camps in the country that will have more talented corner backs than what Miller has seen in the past month.
Jarel Miller is one of the shiftiest receivers we have seen this year. The way he runs his routes demonstrates a pass catcher with a very high football IQ. Whether you’re at the tournaments or watching the latest Boom mixtape…you see the same thing over and over, Miller running his routes, getting open, and catching passes. It’s uncanny how often you look and see him running alone, but don’t think for a minute he only catches passes when he gets himself open! Miller has made some of the most highlight worthy catches we’ve seen this season! When you watch Miller in person or on film it looks like he is jogging, but Miller is consistently open against the best corner backs in the country. His stride is totally effortless.
Miller’s low center of gravity allows him to change direction much quicker and more efficiently than taller defenders. He’s taken his height and made it his advantage. We are looking forward to see what he will do next. When we see it…we will write about it!
