It’s been a busy last few days for the Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard High School football team.
Vanguard head coach Edwin Farmer arranged a college tour for his players that spanned from Thursday to Saturday and included stops at Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Georgia Tech and Mercer.
One member of the squad is 2020 offensive lineman Miller Lewis, who picked up an offer from Georgia during the visit there to go with other early offers from Florida, Miami, Louisville, North Carolina, Oklahoma State and USC.
Before heading to Athens on Saturday, Miller and Vanguard got a good look at Clemson, touring the facilities and Death Valley.
Miller spoke with The Clemson Insider about his experience and said Clemson “piques his interest” after seeing what its new football operations facility has to offer.
“It piques my interest because the players have an entire building just to themselves,” he said. “It’s off away from everything. They can always just come there, relax, do homework, anything they need to do.”
A strong 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman, Miller was intrigued by one part of the facility in particular.
“I believe that they have the best weight room in the nation,” Miller said. “I know they have a great strength coach. I know they all put in work because the weight room is huge.”
Just a freshman, Miller’s recruitment won’t take shape for a while. But after visiting Clemson, he hopes the school is an option for him in the future.
“It would mean a lot to me because I know there’s so much history in Clemson,” Miller said. “They’ve had a lot of players come through Clemson and go to the league.”
