West Lafayette, IN– During the course of the recruiting season, there are many predictions made about what players would land with what teams. Hamilton Southeastern linebacker Collin Miller was predicted to going to Indiana, however today he shocked many as he committed to the Purdue Football team.
Miller is an incredibly impressive outside linebacker out of Hamilton Southeastern. Miller has a good amount of size and speed for the position. The 6’3″ 225 pound linebacker makes it a point to get in the backfield to stop the run, as well as getting to the quarterback for a sack.
Something that considerably stands out on his highlight tape is that he is is very effective at shed blockers. Miller is a very big bodied strong linebacker who carries his weight well, and is light on his feet.
It appears as though Miller can fit in very well in to Purdue’s rush end scheme, as he not only played standing up but he also played with his hand in the dirt. Also Miller is very good at following the football. He is capable of keeping his eyes on the football and not fall for fakes.
Miller also has a considerable offer list. Not only did he have an offer from Indiana, but also offers from Virginia, West Virginia, and Louisville. He also had interest from Missouri as well as Cincinnati. The fact that Head Coach Darrell Hazell was able to get a player of this caliber to commit is very impressive.
Miller now becomes to ninth recruit to commit to the 2016 Purdue recruiting class. Purdue still has around four or five spots still open in the recruiting class, one that consists mostly of three star recruits. If Coach Hazell can continue to recruit three star recruits, it might be the best recruiting class Coach Hazell has had since he’s been in West Lafayette.
