The recruiting process is winding down for Shawn Miller, and it could end with him wearing Gold and Blue for the next four years.
Miller (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) has announced his decision date, revealing that he will choose his collegiate team on Instagram tonight at 5:00 PM. After announcing his Top 5 on June 28, it appears all five contenders remain in the hunt for his signature.

Illinois, Indiana, Arizona, Michigan State and WVU are the finalists for Miller’s signature, with Rivals projecting Illinois to secure his services. Although, the projection came back in March, before any of Miller’s official visits.
Miller visited WVU on June 11, along with a few WVU commits who were undecided when they visited in 4-stars Nicco Marchiol and Justin Williams, and by all accounts, he enjoyed his time in Morgantown. Quarterback commit Marchiol, who Miller met with in Morgantown, could be a key component in landing Miller.

A rising senior at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, Miller was a key receiver for No. 1 ranked IMG — racking up 205 yards and three touchdowns. According to 247Sports’ Blair Angulo, Miller compares to former NFL wide receiver Paul Richardson.
“Lean build and projectable frame,” Angulo wrote. “Agile, short-burst pass-catcher who thrives on underneath routes. Does well to generate space early in routes. Can beat defenses over the top with his speed and positioning. Matches up well against corners that try to get physical near line of scrimmage. Tough after the catch and willing to lower shoulder for extra yardage. Could improve ball security and refine run-block techniques. Potential multi-year starter at Power Five level with upside as NFL Draft Day 3 selection.”
247Sports ranks Miller as the 498th-rated recruit in the cycle. 247 rates him as the 67th-ranked wide receiver and 72nd-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 73rd-ranked wide receiver and the 72nd-ranked recruit from Florida.
