Miller commits to Michigan State


Michigan State may have landed the next Darqueze Dennard on Thursday.

Dennard was a two-star cornerback from a small Georgia town named Jefferson. The future Jim Thorpe Award winner held scholarship offers from only MSU, Middle Tennessee State and Utah State. Under Mark Dantonio’s tutelage, Dennard became one of the most decorated defensive backs in school history en route to becoming a first round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Spartans offered and received a commitment from Grayson Miller during their Football Rising Stars Position Camp on Thursday. Miller, if you will, could be the next potential diamond in the rough for Dantonio and his coaching staff as the 6-foot-3, 195-pound outside linebacker is not rated by the major recruiting services.

The class of 2015 player and Georgetown, Kentucky native only holds an offer from Western Kentucky and has saw limited interest on the recruiting trail.

Dantonio only offers players who fit the tenacity and mold of his schemes. There was something that the coach loved about Miller, a player who recorded 83 tackles and six interceptions for a Scott County High team that finished 15-0 last season.

Is Miller the next underrated player who will break out for the Spartans? He certainly could be.
