Small School Big Game

Small school athlete Justin Miller of the Classical Academy in Colorado Springs is gaining increasing DI attention

Often, when talented players compete at smaller schools it is difficult to see if their game translates to the next level. That is not the case for Colorado Springs Classical Academy athlete Justin Miller. The 6-2 205 pound linebacker and h-back has a skill set of speed and size that should transition nicely to the next level.

The assessment that Miller's game translates to the next level is held by many in that Miller hold offers from Gardner Webb and Campbell University. Along with these FCS offers, Miller is getting looks from Wake Forest, Colorado State, Colorado, New Mexico, Richmond, William & Mary, Liberty and Wyoming. Of these schools Miller lists Wake Forest, Liberty and Wyoming as his favorites.

A talented two way athlete who runs a 4.7 forty and a 4.16 shuttle, Miller is getting looks on both sides of the ball. The majority of schools like Miller as an inside backer, but Liberty, Richmond and Wyoming like Miller as an H-back. As a small ball player attempting to raise his profile, Miller was busy on the circuit hitting camps at Wake Forest, Virginia, North Carolina State, Liberty, Richmond, William and Mary, Wyoming, Colorado State and New Mexico.

Breaking down his own game Miller feels, as a positive, he brings, "leadership on and off the field." Areas he needs to work on in his own assessment include, putting on weight and improving on getting off blocks.

The Classical Academy in Colorado Springs with only 600 students has become a recruiting hot bed of late with Miller and his teammate Daniel Carlson, an Auburn commit, getting looks. With this increased attention and due to Miller's talents expect the athlete to gain more offers before his senior campaign is over.
