Miller, a 6’3″ defensive lineman played this season for Team Ontario, and was listed on Canada Football Chat’s top 100 prospects this year. Miller attended the Canada Football Prep Academy.

“I think this class is a great class. A ton of talent, but more so, great character kids from great families,” Marcus said in a school news release. “We’re really, really happy with the kids that are coming here. They come from strong academic backgrounds, so I think it’s one of our better classes.”
