 How he fits

Tennessee was looking for more of a true cornerback in this class and the Vols got one in Miller. He doesn’t jump off the page in terms of overall athleticism or overall size, but there’s a lot to like about the Texas product. He’s one of the more technically sound corners in the 2015 class and has great feet and excellent hand placement.

At close to 6 feet, he’s got the length and the frame that coaches look for in a corner, he’ll just need some time to fill it out with a little more bulk. Miller hasn’t been ranked as a nationally elite prospect by any of the services, but he’s the type of player who impresses more in person than on film. Tennessee saw him in person and offered. Ohio State and Michigan State did the same earlier this summer.

And while the Vols have several commitments in the 2015 class who could wind up at corner, Miller is the first natural one they’ve taken who is fairly certain to end up at that position. Starter Justin Coleman will be moving on after 2014 in addition to reserve Riyahd Jones. Though Cam Sutton and Emmanuel Moseley are among the young CBs emerging on the current roster, there’s always room for depth at that spot as the Vols will continue to use more and more three cornerback looks.
