Cedar Grove High School (Ga.) product Christen Miller has named his top four schools and Georgia made the cut.
Besides the Bulldogs, Ohio State, Oregon and Southern California have a chance to land the four-star defensive lineman from the Peach State.
Miller is the No. 119 overall prospect, No. 20 defensive linemen and No. 13 player in Georgia, per the 247Sports Composite.
The 6-foot-5, 285-pound defensive tackle took an unofficial visit to Georgia on June 23, according to his social media. Previously, Miller took official visits to Louisville and USC, respectively. He then took an official visit to Ohio State following his trip to Athens.
Miller is a guy who Georgia needs badly in the 2022 recruiting cycle, especially after missing out on a few others at his position. The Bulldogs currently only have one defensive lineman committed in this upcoming class in Tift County product Tyre West. So, getting Miller to visit his state’s flagship university is a must-do for the Georgia coaching staff.
Georgia defensive line coach Tray Scott has a lot of young talent down the depth chart. However, those younger guys don’t have a lot of experience, and the team will be losing veterans Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt and Julian Rochester following the 2021 season. So, despite hauling in six defensive linemen over the last two years, Scott needs to start building momentum heading towards the future.
Miller plays strong-side defensive end for Cedar Grove and is a monster in the trenches, hence his nickname on Twitter, “Trench King.” His size and speed allow him to blow past opposing offensive linemen and get to either the ball carrier or quarterback quickly. On tape, it’s evident that Miller’s athleticism is his strongest tool and that he would fit well in Georgia’s defensive scheme.
The Ellenwood, Ga. native has not officially set a commitment date yet.
