Can't Spell "Miller" without "I-L-L"

The offensive influx of offensive firepower continues in Champaign as Illinois snags another from the Lone Star State on Saturday in Bishop Dunne WR A.D. Miller

Adrian Miller, who goes by A.D., has long been one of the top receivers on the board for Illinois. After the commitment of other top target Miles Boykin to Notre Dame, Miller's commitment to Illinois provides the Illini with another big threat at receiver.

Miller said that the decision was something in which his family supported him and something that was a long time coming.

"My family helped me decide," he said. "Then my coaches had an impact on my decision. The day after I visited the school, I felt like it was the place to be. It just took me a month to decide and make it official."

Miller becomes the 11th public commitment for the Illini and is the 10th on the offensive side of the ball. However, he is the first receiver to commit to Illinois in the 2015 class.

He chose Illinois over offers from the likes of Oregon State, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Arizona State, Kentucky, SMU, Kansas, Indiana, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Colorado, Wake Forest, California, Washington, BYU, Mississippi State, and others. His final four was Illinois, Arizona State, Cal, and Michigan.

Illinois still remains heavily involved with a couple other receivers, including fellow Texan Sam Mays.
