The Trojans added a Class of 2017 safety to the fold on Monday as C.J. Miller (Powder Springs, Ga./McEachern) gave a verbal pledge to USC.
Hailing from the same high school that produced current Trojans offensive lineman Chuma Edoga, Miller received an offer from Clay Helton and Co. just last week after shining in front of members of the USC coaching staff at satellite camps at West Georgia and Georgia State.
Having run a 4.38 forty at the Georgia State camp, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Miller brings a nice combination of size and speed to the safety position, and he’s thought to be bursting with athletic potential.
Just starting to emerge as a name to keep an eye on in recruiting circles, Miller also held offers from the likes of Auburn, Memphis, Minnesota, and Duke among others.
Miller becomes the ninth member of the Trojans’ 2017 recruiting class, and the second safety, joining Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman’s Bubba Bolden.
