C.J. Miller

Three-star C.J. Miller announced for Ole Miss on National Signing Day, will play cornerback for the Rebels

Ole Miss picked up a surprise commitment from three-star defensive back C.J. Miller on National Signing Day. What are the Rebels getting in the Powder Springs, Ga., product?



Miller was a National Signing Day surprise for Ole Miss, the three-star from Powder Springs, Ga., choosing the Rebels over additional offers from Auburn, Maryland, Minnesota, UCF and USC. Ole Miss scouted Miller as a cornerback in the recruiting process, and he projects to stick at the position once he reports — despite his ability, like fellow Ole Miss commit A.J. Harris, to play either cornerback or safety. Ole Miss hoped to add at least one cornerback Wednesday. The Rebels missed, however, on four-star Chevin Calloway and the three-star pair of Eric Stokes and Chris Miller. C.J. Miller, though, softens the blow. He has good size for the position, and Scout.com credits him with a 4.48 40-yard dash. And make no mistake, bringing in a prospect with such a blend of speed and size for an Ole Miss defense that struggled mightily in 2016 is no small thing.
