Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is one of the best players in the NFL today and it seems like he never missed a beat when he came out of college. He was a monster at Texas A&M, but there was a time where he might not have ended up in College Station.
Miller played with the Aggies from 2007-2010 and was a huge piece for the team at the time. However, he nearly chose the LSU Tigers, who won a national championship in Miller’s freshman season, but he explained that the Aggies were more persistent than Les Miles’ club.
“A&M really wanted me,” Miller said. “You know that girlfriend that’s really not that attractive but she’s going to do everything she can to keep you? That was A&M. . . . That hot chick that just talks to you on Mondays? That was LSU.”
Just imagine what the Tigers could have been in that stretch. With players like Kelvin Sheppard, Barkevious Mingo and Patrick Peterson on the roster, LSU could have been dominant during that time with Miller on the roster.
However, the Aggies should be pretty happy that they were persistent. During his career, Miller recorded 181 tackles, 50.5 for loss, and 33 sacks, including a nation-leading 17 in 2009.
