Dorman's Mills to play for the UTC Mocs

One of our favorite Cavs of all time will be playing in the So Con next season. After blocking the punt against Spartanburg in 2001, Steven Mills became a favorite of Cav fans around the area and now will play at the next level. (DP)

Dorman's Steven Mills met one of his future college roommates nearly three weeks ago, then received a phone call from the other two weeks ago.

Mills didn't know Blacksburg defensive end Nesbitt Black or Broome free safety Chris Watson before taking his official visit to Chattanooga, but they've all found something in common since.

Mills, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound strongside linebacker with 158 tackles in 2002, has committed to the Mocs instead of Western Carolina, Coastal Carolina, Murray State and Catawba.

He still plans to visit the last two schools on that list, but he said his mind has been made up.

"It'll be good to have a lot of people in the room from the same area," Mills said. "And if we get all four of us up there, we're going to be pretty good."

The fourth would be Spartanburg quarterback Brandon Sims, whom Mills and Watson both said told them he planned to commit to Chattanooga if Tennessee didn't offer him a scholarship.

All have been recruited by Chattanooga assistant coach Mac Bryan, a former Boiling Springs High School coach retained by new head coach Rodney Allison.
