Willis wavering, but Miller sounds firm to Vols
By ESPN.com staff
While it sounds like Brandon Willis may be wavering on his commitment to Tennessee, the other player at the center of the NCAA’s investigation into the Vols’ use of recruiting hostesses says nothing has changed with him.
Corey Miller, Willis’ teammate at Byrnes High in Duncan, S.C., says he remains firm to Tennessee.
This is what he told JC Shurburtt of ESPN’s Scouts Inc. concerning the trip the Vols' hostesses took in September to see Byrnes play:
"People have their own opinions about it, saying we did this or we did that. All they did was come down for a football game. They got them a little place or whatever and went back to Tennessee the next morning. People are trying to say people can't come to a football game. It's the same situation like saying a guy from Byrnes like (Florida State safety) Justin Bright can't come back. That is the situation. They came and watched the game and went back to Tennessee. People have all their opinions. Yeah we took pictures together and everything, but there was no sign that said come to Tennessee, as the photo showed."
Miller, a 6-4, 231-pound defensive end, is the No. 49th rated prospect nationally in the ESPNU 150 list. He says he's "100 percent" still committed to Tennessee and not thinking about taking any more visits.
