Miller could be the next great cornerback to join a talented defensive back room in Happy Valley.

RLR's Take

Miller is one of the more intriguing members of the class as he has yet to fully commit to his future role as a defensive back. He starred as a quarterback for much of his high school career and yet there was no shortage of interest in the four-star prospect as a cornerback at the next level (Florida, Virginia Tech, Miami, and Notre Dame all offered).

Penn State is no stranger to the "more of an athlete but can be an elite corner with the right coaching" mold of prospect, and that's exactly what they have here in the Florida product. Nothing is assured in such cases, obviously, but Miller's supreme athleticism gives him a fantastic starting place as he begins the transition to full-time defensive back.

Moving Forward

Miller will enroll early this winter, which will be huge for his development and prospects of finding early playing time as a freshman. While his profile is one that would likely spend most of his first season getting his feet wet on the special teams units, the cornerback room is a bit shallow for the Nittany Lions at the moment. Tariq Castro-Fields is off to the NFL, leaving just Joey Porter Jr., Johnny Dixon, Daequan Hardy, and Kalen King as returning contributors. While four names seem like plenty, Hardy exclusively plays in the slot and given his success there, that will likely remain the case. That leaves just three returners to lock down the field and boundary corner positions.

Perhaps Manny Diaz will feel differently, but under Brent Pry, there was a very clear effort to keep their cornerbacks fresh, meaning at least one more name is likely going to need to emerge for 2022. It's possible that transfer AJ Lytton will be that name, but he's exclusively been a special teamer to this point. If all goes well, Miller could find himself in that rotation.


Welcome to Penn State, Cam.
