Helena’s Matt Miller gets some nationa Attention

I found this atricle on Rivals.com this today and thought I would share it. I am post only the section that deals with Capitals high schools Matt Miller.

Montana is hardly one of the nation’s top recruiting hot spots, but college coaches this spring will be flocking to Big Sky Country to check out athlete Matt Miller of Helena Capital.

Montana’s Matt Miller is getting national attention. For the first time in quite some time, Miller could be a national recruit from the state.He already has scholarship offers from Stanford, Boise State, Oregon State, Arizona State, Wyoming, Colorado State, Washington State, Oregon, Montana, Montana State, Harvard and Dartmouth. He is also starting to get some major attention from national powers all over the country.

“Matt is a tremendous athlete,” Capital coach Pat Murphy said. “He’s probably the best football recruit to come out of Montana in a long time.”

What makes Miller such an attractive prospect is his versatility.

At 6 feet 4 and 205 pounds, Miller was named the state’s offensive most valuable player at receiver in 2008. Last year, he had 932 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns. He also had an additional 663 yards on the ground and six more scores. Miller also was named to the all-state team on defense in both 2007 and 2008 and helped his team win state championships in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

“He could play big-time football at receiver, defensive back or linebacker,” Murphy said. “I think his best chance at success would be to play safety or outside linebacker. He is 6-4, 205 now, but he could easily put on 30 pounds in a few years. Then you would have a very fast athletic 6-4, 235-pound wrecking ball.

“But again, he is a great receiver, too, because he runs so well.”

Murphy said Miller is a complete player both on and off the field.

“What makes him special is his size and speed,” Murphy said. “Even though he is tall, he moves like a quick little guy. He has speed, athleticism and can jump. To top it off, he is aggressive and has great football instincts. He is very smart as well and takes honors classes. He’s the complete package.”

A complete package who is about to become one of the most heavily recruited players in the nation.

“We’re excited about the amount of attention Matt’s received so far,” Murphy said. “But we’re not surprised. He’s a very talented player and is worthy of all of the interest that he’s been receiving.”

Now would someone tell this guy that basketball is where his true calling is at. OK maybe not, but I can dream can not I. Seriously it is really great to see a Montana Kid get this kind of nationa;l attention.
