The past week was a light one on the recruiting trail in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, but there was still some news despite the usual quiet period surrounding the July 4 holiday.
Miller is a big get for the Illini. He had offers from such programs as Arizona State, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, and Washington, among many others.
Early during the past week, Scout.com national analyst Greg Powers reported the recent commitment of The Colony 2015 linebacker Justin Jinning to Iowa. Jinning, who pledged to the Hawkeyes in late June, is a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder who will likely play the outside at the next level.
Another bit of commitment-related news involved Sachse 2015 running back Devine Ozigbo, who tweeted Sunday that he will announce his pledge from eight finalists via Twitter on July 22. Ozigbo has almost two dozen FBS offers.
Greenville 2015 receiver D'erren Wilson had a change of heart regarding his commitment timeline. On the evening of July 1, Wilson named a top three of Arkansas State, BYU, and Indiana with plans for a Wednesday decision, but tweeted the next morning (Tuesday) that he had postponed his decision.
Tuesday also brought the 6-foot-2 1/2, 172-pound Wilson his eighth FBS offer, which came from North Texas.
