Von Miller is a walking billboard for Texas A&M. The Aggies will find no better salesman than the Denver Broncos linebacker, who spent part of media night trying hype his Aggies.

He brought up A&M several times, including one about his memory of national signing day.

“Deciding to go Texas A&M would have to be the greatest decision I’ve made in my life,” Miller said.

He then turned to a fellow Aggie, smiled and said, “You got that down, right?!”

Miller, who played at DeSoto, was a four-star prospect. He committed to the Aggies before his senior season and remained onboard even after late recruiting efforts by Oklahoma and others.

“I was so sure of my decision,” Miller said. “It wasn’t speculation of do this or do that. I was so sure of my pick for a couple of months out. I was very, very comfortable with what I was doing, and I just remember it being a great day with all my family.”

Miller made 27.5 sacks his final two seasons in College Station, won the 2010 Butkus Award and became the No. 2 overall pick of the Broncos in 2011 behind Cam Newton.

“Potential recruits: I would tell them you want to go to a school where you can go create something, go be a part of something,” Miller said. “If you want to do that, you go to Texas A&M. Gig ‘em! You see that right before signing day.”
