Commitment Analysis: DB Jordan Miller

Scout.com takes a look at what Washington is getting with their new DB commit, Oceanside (Calif.) 2015 standout Jordan Miller...

Profile: Jordan Miller

Position: Safety
Location: Oceanside (Calif.)
Height: 6-foot-1
Weight: 165 pounds

Recruiting: Miller took multiple unofficial visits over the spring/summer but felt the strongest connection with the Washington coaching staff. Oregon State was probably the runner up for Miller but the offer from the Huskies intrigued him from the get go. Interestingly enough, Miller didn't start as a junior, playing behind a pair of Div I signees at corner and that definitely helped the Huskies. He's a kid with a ton of upside in terms of his size and athleticism and lack of junior film is the only thing keeping him from having 20+ offers. None of the in-state Pac 12 schools offered but he's good enough to play for any of them.

What to Like: Miller has a great combination of length, speed and skill and should have a breakout senior season. He has looked good in the spring 7v7 circuit and had a strong showing at the NIKE Camp in Oakland where he clocked a 4.61-40 (electronic), 4.19 shuttle and jumped 38" in the vertical. He shows excellent quickness breaking on the ball, is physical in run support and competes at a very high level. He has good ball skills, football instincts and looks like he might not even be done growing yet. We could easily see Miller end up in the 6-3 range but maintain his corner frame and athleticism.

Areas for improvement: Miller just needs experience, namely game experience, after playing a part time role as a junior. He did play a lot of 7v7 over the spring so the speed of the game isn't going to overwhelm him. Oceanside also plays a traditionally tough schedule and that will be the case again this season so Miller will have a great opportunity to showcase his talent. At 165 pounds, Miller also needs to put some weight on to stand up to the physical nature of the college game but has plenty of time to do so.

Overall Analysis: Miller is one of the more intriguing DB prospects in the entire West Region. He doesn't have a national name but several people who saw him over the spring feel he's on part as a prospect with fellow San Diego and national recruit Dechaun Holiday. Washington did a great job evaluating Miller's upside and seeing his potential. Once his senior tape gets out, you can expect more schools to go after Miller but his commitment looks rock solid and he has already developed a very good relationship with Husky DB coach Jimmy Lake.
