Miller Time: Former Louisville Linebacker Horace Miller Transferring to UTEP

Horace Miller, a 6'1 and 217 lb. linebacker, has decided to transfer from Louisville to UTEP.  According to the Card Chronicle, Miller had been showing interest in UTEP for about a month.  Tuesday night, he confirmed that he selected UTEP via his Twitter Account (no official word from UTEP yet).  Miller played only one season with the Cardinals and is currently listed as a sophomore. 

While a senior at Dunbar High School in Baltimore, MD, Miller recorded an astonishing 29 sacks and led his squad to the Maryland 1A state championship.  The 29 sack total is a Maryland state record.  In high school, Miller also won the Nike SPARQ championship.  More on that after the jump.

Miller was rated a two star recruit by Rivals.  A year ago, the Card Chronicle discussed Miller's potential and also gave us an explanation of what exactly the SPARQ Championship is.

Miller joining UL's 09 recruiting class was a suprise, according to Jody Demling, who announced Miller's decision to sign with Louisville back in late January after Miller originally committed to UNLV a month prior. Miller is accustomed to winning--he led a defense that won 3 consecutive Maryland state champsionships, racking up 46 sacks and 223 tackes over his last 2 years as a starter. He also won the 2008 SPARQ Championship in football, scoring the 2nd highest SPARQ rating ever recorded (162.93). SPARQ which is called the "SAT for athletes", is a sport-specific tool used to measure overall athleticism and tests Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction, and Quickness (SPARQ) over a series of drills.

Here are some of Miller's high school highlights.


According to the Louisville official site, Miller has a 39' vertical leap.  He sounds like a phenomenal athlete and one that should fit in nicely to Andre Patterson's aggressive, 4-3 defensive scheme.
