Concord DT likes Clemson; Heels, Wolfpack among others becoming interested

Concord First Assembly defensive lineman Ainsley Miller was impressed by his unofficial visit to Clemson over the weekend. The Tigers haven’t made Miller, who is 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds, an official offer yet, but he says the coaches told him they were very interested in him.

“They are very interested,” said First Assembly coach Mike Minter. “They were one of the teams on him early. He’s also going to visit New Mexico, and West Virginia is getting in on him too.”

Miller was joined on his Clemson trip by his mom and two friends.

“I gave them a transcript and film,” Miller said. “Hopefully that will get them to offer me so I can go to their school. I talked with the quarterbacks coach, the defensive line coach and the defensive coordinator. They all seem interested.”

He said he’s also drawing interest from North Carolina, Nebraska, Virginia, N.C. State and TCU. Miller will take an official visit to West Virginia this weekend and to New Mexico (his first offer) December 4th.

He had two more sacks and seven tackles, Minter said, in a half in First Assembly’s blowout of Southlake Friday night. It was 48-0 at the break, so Miller and most of the starters sat out the second half.

Miller now has nine sacks for the season, and First Assembly is 8-0.
