6-3, 245 • Junior • outside linebacker
Miller finally has a home, which could mean big things this fall. It feels like longer than three years ago that the standout from Fishers, Indiana, arrived as a projected defensive end. He moved to outside linebacker in 2017, then became a swingman there and at the inside spot after Scott Frost took over. He made 17 tackles in 12 games as a reserve. Now, Miller’s job is more clearly defined. The graduation of four-year starter Dedrick Young helped with that, as did injuries to other inside linebackers like Will Honas and Nick Henrich. Whether through ability or attrition, Miller will get a chance to prove his versatility and the fruits of his hard work.
