Christen Miller: Georgia? Ohio State? A big shock? Setting the stage for his National Signing Day decision

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s the Intel. This entry details a 1-on-1 conversation from earlier this month with All-American DT prospect Christen Miller of Cedar Grove High School.

=============================================================

Optimistic.

That’s been the word for Christen Miller this month. He’s in the very final stretch of his recruiting process.

The All-American DT prospect from Cedar Grove High School in Metro Atlanta has had to wade through his final college thoughts while recovering from a serious knee injury that did not require surgery.

It has not dampened the young fella’s over-the-top spirit.

“I’m really just having fun but I’m handling business,” he said.

He’s set to announce his college decision on live streams beginning at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday from the Cedar Grove High School cafeteria.

Miller will be in Miami this weekend for his final official visit.

What will this decision come down to? His answer, shared in a wide-ranging interview earlier this month, has been constant in his process.

“Brotherhood, development and a place to call forever,” he said.

Miller has done very little media this month. He’s sought to keep a low profile.

He’s heard the name, image and likeness pitches. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound senior is a natural spokesman. Miller could probably sell 2021 national title game runner-up apparel to Alabama fans.

Miller is just that marketable. But he said those NIL matters will not be a factor in his final decision.

“If you know me and you know me personally, you know I don’t care about all of that,” he said. “I don’t care about NIL. I’m marketable. NIL is going to follow me where ever I go. I don’t care about NIL. I just want to have fun, handle business and play football.”

Miller once told DawgNation he would wait until the day before National Signing Day to make up his mind.

“The day before I’m going to already know,” he said. “So when I come back from Miami, that is it. I am going to know what I need to do.”

Miller had papers sent to him in December to sign during the early period. He had those documents from Georgia and Ohio State. He held off on all of that.

The scholarship papers have remained there. Sitting on his dinner table for a time.

“Every time I eat, I am just looking at them,” he said earlier this month.
