The University of Miami landed the signature of a major position of need. After losing several defensive linemen to the NFL Draft and transfers, Jordan Miller inks with the Hurricanes. The six foot four 330 pound defensive tackle from Jacksonville, Florida became a top priority after the early signing day period.
From Nothing To Something
Many recruiting services viewed Miller as an unknown due to him transferring high schools his senior year. In addition to that he did not attend many camps. The Sandalwood high school product was committed to Georgia Southern for a time before decommitting. After not signing during the early signing period, more schools found Miller on their radar.
His recruiting picked up after receiving an offer from Virginia, which was followed by Tennessee. Miami coaches got involved after Sandalwood head coach Bradley Jennings reached out on Miller’s behalf. Jennings has ties to Miami as his son is a linebacker on the roster.
