On Tuesday, the Whitehaven High School standout went even further, making a verbal commitment to Coach Barry Odom’s squad and continuing the Tigers’ recent run of commitments.
Miller, a 6-foot, 210-pounder, became the Tigers’ third verbal commitment of the night — following Alabama linebacker Jamal Brooks and Georgia offensive lineman Case Cook — and sixth verbal commitment in four days for Odom’s squad.
Miller is the 10th verbal commitment for the Tigers’ 2017 recruiting class, which doubled Missouri’s total going into the weekend.
His first trip to Missouri made a big impression on him.
“Man, it was great,” Miller told BlackAndGoldIllustrated.com on Saturday night. “I loved it here. I loved it here.”
Miller liked a lot about his visit to Columbia.
“With Missouri, when I came here, just the environment,” Miller said. “I talked to some of the players. They were cool. The coaches, they were fired up. They introduced me well. They fed me good; I’m talking about real good. I liked the food. I came out here and I’m talking to the GAs (graduate assistants). They were talking real good. I’m not talking about persuading. They were being real. I like people that are real. They tell you the truth, tell you what’s up. Just stuff like that.”
