Class of 2018 Defensive Tackle Prospect Building Relationship With Auburn

Coynis Miller discusses his interest in the Auburn football Tigers.

Birmingham, Ala.--A regular visitor to the Auburn campus with his Army All-American football teammate Tadarian Moultry, Coynis Miller made a return trip to the Plains to spend time with the AU coaches now his class is up next.

The junior at Jackson-Olin High is getting plenty of attention, too. Already rated four stars, the six-foot-four, 290-pound defensive tackle spent time with Auburn’s defensive line coach, Rodney Garner.

“It was a good visit just being back again and being with Coach G,” said Miller, who has scholarship offers from Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State, Michigan and others. 

“He was talking to a group and showing us videos and how he works with his players on the D-line,” Miller said of Garner’s meeting with class of 2018 prospects like Miller.

“We went and ate and talked to Coach Gus (Malzahn), just getting a relationship,” he said.

The defensive tackle said he likes the feel around the Auburn program. “It’s good he said--like family.”

Bowling Green was the first college to offer Miller a scholarship. Auburn wasn’t far behind as the first Power 5 program giving him a chance to join its program following a strong performance in spring training heading into his junior season.
