WVU Flips Juco Defensive Back


West Virginia took a coveted defensive back from the commitment list of LSU on Monday when Eastern Arizona junior college defensive back Dreshun Miller announced his pledge to the Mountaineers.

While Miller had been committed to LSU, it was widely known that he was looking at other schools, and West Virginia targeted him to help build depth in a defensive secondary that was short on bodies for much of the 2018 season. Miller will have every chance to compete for playing time in 2019, and is expected to enroll in January and participate in spring football practice.

Miller plays the cornerback position with confidence, borne from his quick reaction skills and ability to close on the ball. He often moves and changes alignment before the snap, so as not to give away his intentions, but once the play starts he almost appears to be a mirror of the opposing wide receiver’s route. The majority of his video shows him playing a bit off the line of scrimmage, but he closes the gap quickly as his opponent heads downfield.

What stands out the most is his closing ability. He sees the ball early, and rarely gets turned around, which provides no window for opposing quarterbacks to throw into. He gets his hands into the flight path of the ball and into the receiver’s frame, which allowed him to deny a number of potential completions.

Playing in eight games for the Gila Monsters in 2018, Miller had 44 tackles, including three for losses to go along with an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He was tied for 8th nationally in pass breakups with 12.

Miller, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, also had offers from Tennessee, Texas A&M, Kentucky, Auburn, Houston and Texas Tech, among others.
