Tyler Miller is coming off a big bounce-back season.
After leading Rye Country Day in school as a freshman, Miller was sidelined his sophomore season after undergoing knee surgery in January.
This past season, Miller emerged as one of the leading players in the Hudson Valley, leading to a variety of Division I opportunities.
The two-way midfielder has verbally committed to the admissions process at Cornell, as first reported earlier this week at Twitter.com/Joe_Lombardi.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Miller, who plays for the Prime Time 2014 travel team, is a physical and athletic player who can score with either hand, as shown on his highlight reel.
Now, here’s a Q&A with Tyler on his commitment.
What were the main factors in your decision?
Finding a school with excellent academics that would challenge me. In the end I chose Cornell because apart from academics I was drawn to the history and culture of the lacrosse program.
What other schools were you considering and what schools did you visit?
I visited Brown, Yale, Dartmouth, Middlebury and Amherst.
What are your strengths as a player and how would you describe your style of play?
I would describe myself as a physical two-way midfielder. My greatest strength is my ability to create my own shot and score with both hands.
What area of your game do you need to work on?
I need to work on my overall lacrosse IQ, especially my vision and feeding game.
How did you get introduced to lacrosse and what other sports have you played?
I grew up playing for Larchmont-Mamaroneck Youth Lacrosse and Rye Youth Lacrosse. I also play varsity football at Rye Country Day.
What travel team do you play on what showcase events did you participate in?
I play for Prime Time 2014. I have attended the Prep School Showcase, Jake Reed’s Blue Chip, NYLA Showcase, King of the Hill and MVP. Last summer, I also played at Maverik Showtime.
Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank my varsity coaches Matt Rosolen and Brian O’Callaghan. I also would like to thank my Prime Time coach Nick Daniello, who has helped me through the process from the start.
