I’ve been writing for this site for five years now. Number one, I’m old. But number two, I’ve been consistent in one thing. I love my big receivers. My Darius Watts, my Anquan Boldins, my Dorial Green-Beckhams. It’s easy to throw to a guy who is a big target. If they can also run and make people miss, that’s even better. That’s what the Colorado Buffaloes have found in Keith Miller.
Keith Miller hails from The Colony High School, just outside of Dallas, Texas. Miller stands at a TOWERING 6’5 and over 200 pounds, which means he’s about the size as a tight end and imposing on the boundary. As a recruit, he was committed to Kansas until Darrin Chiaverini worked his magic and made him see the light in Boulder. When he committed, we wrote about a lot of the other attention he got in the process, and the Buffs held off Texas Tech to keep this talent.
His senior year highlights show the same thing as his junior year highlights. Miller will bully the hell out of defensive backs on the line of scrimmage and beyond, and he will be a trusted weapon for a quarterback to throw to. In the red zone, 50/50 balls thrown to Keith Miller are more like 80/20 balls. He will play early.
