Biography
Miller verbally committed to Central Michigan in mid-December of last year. However, when Chippewa's Head Coach Dan Enos chose to leave for the offensive coordinator job at Arkansas, Miller decided to explore other options. He was looked at by both Michigan and Michigan State in the summer of 2014. Kansas assistant coach, Reggie Mitchell, a Michigan native, and Central Michigan alumnus actually, set his sights on this kid and snatched him away from his own Alma Mater. Lining up primarily at corner throughout his high school career, Miller is a physical player, good in pursuit, not shy on contact with solid footwork and ball tracking skills. Miller proved to be a standout special teams player and kick returner during his time at Saline High and this, perhaps, will be where he will make his earliest contributions at Kansas.
