Von Miller was a fairly sought-after recruit when he was in high school.

The current Broncos star and Super Bowl 50 MVP was courting interest from the likes of Florida, Oklahoma and LSU before deciding to stay in his home state of Texas and join the Texas A&M Aggies. How did Miller decide between all the schools?

Well, Miller has a unique way of explaining how he chose the Aggies over the Tigers, who sound like they were a close second. Miller revealed his thought process to Greg Bishop for a story in next week's Sports Illustrated:

“A&M really wanted me,” Miller says. “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.”

Tigers fans probably would have loved Miller on their team, but at least they can take solace in the fact he found the school attractive.
