On Monday night, the Miami Hurricanes got a literal and figurative big boost to the 2018 recruiting class when Jacksonville (FL) Sandalwood 3-star DT Jordan Miller committed to the Canes.

A late-rising player, the 6’4” 330lb Miller was offered by several power 5 teams — Miami, Tennesee, Georgia Tech and Virginia — in recent weeks. Miller just took an official visit to Virginia, but that matters little with his current commitment.
Miami sent 5 coaches to see Miller on Monday night, and that visit resulted in this commitment. Miller will take his official visit to Coral Gables this weekend, which should only strengthen his pledge ahead of National Signing Day.
This is, quite simply, a big get for Miami. Miller has very good size at 6’4” 330lbs, and the fact that Jeremy Pruitt wanted him at Tennessee (a noted defensive coach with top tier evaluation over the course of years) speaks to Miller’s talent. He may not be a 5-star All-American, but Jordan Miller can play, and his addition to the DL in this class is massive for Miami.
Miller is just the latest player from Jacksonville to commit to Miami. Former DT Kendrick Norton and starting linebacker Michael Pinckney are but a couple of the Duval natives who are on Miami’s roster.
Miller is the 2nd DT in this class, joining fellow commit Nesta Silvera. Miller is the 22nd commit for Miami in the 2018 recruiting class overall.
