Penn State continues to be red-hot on the recruiting trail in July. The tenth commitment this month is four-star 2022 cornerback Cam Miller.
A three-sport athlete, Miller began his high school career at Fernandina Beach High before transferring to Trinity Christian Academy for his upcoming senior season. He was the Nassau County Offensive Player of the Year, and a Jacksonville.com All-First Coast selection this past season. On top of his play in the defensive backfield, he led his high school's offense as a quarterback
The Miller File
- Class: 2022
- Size: 6'0/180
- Pos: CB
- School: Trinity Christian Academy (Jacksonville, FL)
- Composite Rating: ★★★★ (.9014)
- Composite Rank: No. 30 CB, No. 280 overall
He picked up his Penn State offer this past November and schools like Miami (Fl.) and Notre Dame followed suit soon after. He took advantage of campus visits in June, visiting South Carolina, Virginia Tech, UCF twice, and Penn State twice as well - with his second trip to Happy Valley being an official visit. The Hokies emerged as Penn State's top competition when Miller trimmed his list to two earlier this month.
For all the talent Penn State has in it's 2022 recruiting class, Cam Miller may be the best athlete of the group. He's got great hands and knows how to read quarterbacks - thanks in part to him also playing the position. He's not the most physical player and needs to work on his tackling, but that's something that can be coached up by Terry Smith and Co.
247Sports' Andrew Ivens compares him Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden and provides the following scouting report:
Has a college-ready frame at 6-foot, 180 pounds. Should be able to eventually add some more mass. An accomplished athlete that has spent a majority of his prep career deployed as an option quarterback, but projects as a defensive back at the next level given his ability to mirror and change directions. Tested exceptionally well the summer before his junior season clocking a 4.5 on the lasers in the 40-yard dash. Also posted a 124-inch broad jump. A coordinated football player that makes things look easy on Friday nights no matter what he’s doing. Still has a lot to learn from a technical standpoint on the defensive side of the ball, but already understands how to use body position and angles to cut off routes. Clean sink-and-drive motion allows him to explode out of his breaks and get aggressive at the catch point. Must get better at at finishing off tackles, but not exactly afraid to come up and make a stop in the flats. Adds value as a return man as he’s elusive in the open field and averaged over 7.2 yards per carry his first three years of high school. Will need some seasoning and to be coached up before he reaches his full potential, but athletic profile is one of the best out of any defensive back in the entire 2022 cycle. Could line up at multiple spots in the secondary. Might ultimately settle in as a safety, but he has the hips to get it done at cornerback.
Miller is commit No. 22 for the Nittany Lions in the 2022 class. He's the second cornerback to jump on board, joining three-star Louisiana cornerback Jordan Allen. Penn State's class remains at No. 2 in the nation with 13 four-star prospects.
