Kansas Football Spring Scrimmage: Freshman RB Darrien Miller Shines

The Kansas Jayhawks football team had a nice recruiting class under head coach Turner Gill and one of those players was RB Darrien Miller out of Blue Springs High School. He was one of the top-rated players in Missouri so it was excellent work by KU to pick him up.

The work they put in on Miller to get him to sign is already starting to pay off. The KU football team held a scrimmage over the weekend and it was Miller who shined -- at least in the box score. He had four touchdowns and, along with freshman Julius Green, looked sharp.

Via KU's release on the scrimmage:

Freshman defensive tackle Julius Green and fellow freshman running back Darrien Miller highlighted the scrimmage. Miller scored four touchdowns, including a run where he seemed to be surrounded by the defense, but spun out of it and ran to daylight. Green made a handful of tackles including a few in the backfield on running plays.

Anyone else already getting excited watching this kid? (Note: I went to Rockhurst HS and Miller, from Blue Springs, would slice up my alma mater. I think I'm hiding by bitterness well.)

The other major note is the quarterback competition between Jordan Webb and Quinn Mecham. They split reps with the first team.

Head on over to Rock Chalk Talk to see several videos of the scrimmage.
