Signee Notes: Offensive Tackle Patrick Miller

Big offensive lineman signs papers to play football for the Tigers.

Auburn, Ala.--Patrick Miller, a four-star prospect from Palm Beach Garden, Fla., enrolled early at Auburn and will participate in spring practice for the Tigers.

Position/Scout Ranking: Patrick Miller, 6-7, 270, William T. Dwyer High, four stars, ranked as the No. 30 offensive tackle prospect in the country.

Auburn's Main Competition: Miller was a longtime commitment to LSU before switching to Auburn in January. He also considered an offer from the Florida Gators early in the recruiting process before narrowing his finalists to Auburn and LSU.

Patrick Miller was one of three commits to enroll at Auburn for the spring semester.

Why Auburn Signed Him: As an early enrollee, the agile, long-armed offensive tackle has the opportunity to immediately step in at a position of need and see playing time as Auburn continues the project of rebuilding its offensive line.

Worth Noting: Early in January, Miller was in the process of moving to Baton Rouge to enroll in school and start classes for spring semester. It was then that Miles informed Miller and his father that LSU would be unable to bring him in on scholarship as an early enrollee because of a limit on the number of players who could be on scholarship at one time. Miles asked Miller to either delay his enrollment or pay his own way during spring semester. Faced with these two alternatives, Miller chose a third option—enroll immediately at Auburn where there was a scholarship available for the spring semester.
