Building a contender? Deion Sanders, Jackson State land commitment from another former SEC player
Jackson State is stockpiling some talent under new coach Deion Sanders. That roster now is set to include former Missouri linebacker Aubrey Miller who has committed to Jackson State.
Miller left the Missouri program about three months ago, coach Eli Drinkwitz announced when he said Miller would not play the rest of this season. Listed as a redshirt junior, Miller played in one game in 2019, as he suffered a knee injury early in the season. He made a pair of tackles against Wyoming last season.
Miller was expected to be in the mix for a backup linebacker role this season. He is from Memphis, Tennessee, so this is a move closer to home for him. Miller was a 4-star recruit in the class of 2017 and the No. 13 outside linebacker in the country according to 247Sports. He was slowed by injuries during his three seasons in Columbia. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
This is the second known SEC player to make this kind of move. Mississippi State freshman cornerback Javorrius Selmon announced a few months ago that he is transferring to Jackson State to play for “Coach Prime.”
