Before Penn State: Miller comes to Penn State from Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Florida. In his lone season at Trinity Christian, he helped his team to a state championship.
Before transferring to Trinity Christian, Miller played for Fernandina Beach High School, where he was three-year captain, two-time team MVP and eclipsed 2,000 yards of total offense in both his sophomore and junior seasons.
In his year at Trinity Christian, Miller contributed heavily on defense, finishing the year with 56 tackles (40 solo), six passes defended, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Miller continued to play a role on offense, accounting for 751 all-purpose yards.
Miller, a four-star recruit, committed to Penn State last July— picking Penn State over UCF and Virginia Tech— and signed in December.
Where he stands:
It’s hard to tell where Miller stands since he hasn’t played a down of college football yet. Penn State has talented and experienced at the corner position, with Joey Porter Jr. and Kalen King expected by many to be the starters and former South Carolin Gamecock Johnny Dixon expected to provide depth in his second season at Penn State.
It’s likely that, barring injuries to players higher on the depth chart, Miller will either redshirt his freshman season or spend the year in a reserve role. The most interesting possibility for Miller is for him to be used on offense, but it remains to be seen how realistic that is.
A quote about Miller:
”Here’s a kid that transferred from a small school just outside of Jacksonville to Trinity, a traditional power in Florida, and became their best player,” Penn State associate head coach and cornerbacks coach Terry Smith said on early signing day in December. “Was a two-way guy there. Played the wildcat and played some receiver, and they got him the ball all over the place on a traditional state championship team.”
