Q & A with CB Justin Miller

The Tigers added some much needed depth in the secondary this past recruiting season, and one of the biggest acquistions was Justin Miller, a true shutdown cover cornerback from Kentucky. We've got the latest on Justin in this Q & A session. You can just call him, "Mr. Do it All!"

The Tigers addressed several needs this offseason, but the one that might standout the most is in the secondary.

Justin Miller, widely considered to be one of the top cover guys in the southeast, signed his letter of intent with the Tigers on February 6th.

Miller comes to Clemson as a USA Today Honorable Mention All-American and he was also ranked as the 11th best defensive back in the nation by Tom Lemming.

His senior year, to say that Miller was a force on both sides of the ball would be an understatement.

He rushed for 814 yards and 21 TDs, and caught 19 passes for 498 yards and six scores all from his running back position. On defense, Justin registered 3 interceptions and 19 passes broken up to go along with 56 tackles in 15 games.

Tommy Bowden certainly recruited Miller for his pure athletic ability, but the all-star cornerback is also a leader on the football field. He doesn't shy away from the spotlight, and he is most known for his big playmaking ability.

Quite an impressive season indeed. Here is the latest from Mr. Miller in our most recent Q & A session.
