================================================= ==========

Optimistic.

That’s the word for Christen Miller this month. He is in the very last straight line of his recruitment process.

The All-American DT prospect from Cedar Grove High School in Metro Atlanta had to work through his final college thoughts while recovering from a serious knee injury that didn’t require surgery.

This did not dampen the exaggerated spirit of the young man.

“I’m really having fun, but I’m minding business,” he said.

He is set to announce his college’s decision on live streams beginning at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday from the cafeteria at Cedar Grove High School.

Miller will be in Miami this weekend for his last official visit.

What will this decision boil down to? His response, shared in a wide-ranging interview earlier this month, was consistent in its process.

“Brotherhood, development and a place to call forever,” he said.

Miller made very little media this month. He sought to keep a low profile.

He heard the name, the image and the likeness. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound eldest is a natural spokesperson. Miller could probably sell 2021 national title game runner-up apparel to Alabama fans.

Miller is just marketable. But he said those NIL issues would not be a factor in his final decision.

“If you know me and you know me personally, you know I don’t care about any of this,” he said. “I don’t care about NIL. I am marketable. NIL will follow me wherever I go. I don’t care about NIL. I just want to have fun, manage business and play football.

Miller once told DawgNation that he would wait until the day before National Signing Day to make up his mind.

“The day before, I will already find out,” he said. “So when I come back from Miami, that’s it. I’m going to know what I have to do.

Miller had papers sent to him in December to sign in the first period. He had these documents from Georgia and the State of Ohio. He took it all in.

The stock exchange papers remained there. Sitting on his dining table for a while.

“Every time I eat, I just watch them,” he said earlier this month.
