Henry Clay High appears loaded for the 2010 football season, much in part to seniors Ryan Duzyk, Jerry Williams and Ryan Smith. But junior Vincent Miller is one of the top young players who’ll impact for the Blue Devils.

Henry Clay High appears loaded for the 2010 football season, much in part to seniors Ryan Duzyk, Jerry Williams and Ryan Smith. But junior Vincent Miller is one of the top young players who’ll impact for the Blue Devils.

As a sophomore, Vincent Miller saw limited action on the field behind several upperclassmen, but when he stepped onto the field, he made a big impact. “I think I did well. My coach is more of a senior type coach. I was only a sophomore and I would come in three or four times a game,” said Miller. “I think I performed well,” he finished.

In his limited action, Miller rushed 40 times for 298 yards and three touchdowns. He also threw for one touchdown pass and caught seven passes for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns. Miller also returned 14 punts for 176 yards.

While his numbers don’t jump off the page, Miller has been visiting camps and combines where he consistently receives high honors and praise. “I attended the National Underclassmen Combine and I’m always MVP,” he said. “I’ve been to FBU camp at Kentucky State. I got invited to Top Gun. I’m on the 2012 watch-list for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl,” he said.

“Every camp that I’ve attended that gives out an MVP, I’ve won,” he said.

Miller recently checked out Tallahassee and the Seminoles. “I just got back from Florida State’s camp this Sunday. I talked with Coach Jimbo Fisher in his office for about five minutes. He really likes me,” said Miller.

And while Miller has yet to receive any official offers, he’s hearing from many schools. “Michigan State and Kentucky (are the ones I hear from most),” he said. “There are about 13 D-1 schools recruiting me right now. Florida State, Louisville, Connecticut and Michigan are recruiting me. Miami called and got my information from Coach Simpson. Those are my top teams,” he continued.

“I don’t have any offers at this point, but I feel pretty strong about them coming in after my junior year. I’ve spoke to many of the coaches and they are impressed with what I do on both sides of the ball,” said Miller.

Meanwhile, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound receiver will continue to improve on his game going into his junior year.

“My strength is probably my ability to get away from tackles. My awareness and my vision are strengths; my ability to just break tackles,” he said. “I would like to get better at recognizing coverages before the ball snaps, instead of making my move after I see the coverage,” he continued.

We will continue to track Vinny’s progress as his career progresses.
