Dante Miller is joining the South Carolina offseason momentum with a Friday commitment to play for Shane Beamer.

The Columbia transfer running back, who rushed for 1,281 yards and 6 touchdowns at Columbia, will play for the Gamecocks for his final season of college eligibility. Miller will join the Gamecocks as a preferred walk-on, after he graduates in May with a sociology degree. He began his college career in 2018, but has played 3 seasons since the Ivy League didn’t compete in 2020, The Big Spur reported.

In 6 games as a freshman, Miller rushed 61 times for 317 yards and a touchdown. That season was cut short by injury. In 10 games as a sophomore in 2019, Miller had 52 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown.

Miller led the Ivy League in rushing a season ago, as the Lions went 7-3 record and a win over eventual league champion Dartmouth. His 5.8 yards per touch were also second among Ivy League runners with at least 100 carries. He is a native of Rockingham, North Carolina and played at Richmond Senior High School in Rockingham, the same program that produced former South Carolina star and current Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Melvin Ingram.

Miller chose South Carolina over reported offers from Delaware, Sacramento State, Rhode Island, Samford and Albany.

“They really shoot you with a different type type of respect, energy, and the genuineness that comes with the program,” Miller told The State. “That’s something I really do love about (South Carolina).”
