Ed Orgeron and the LSU Tigers stayed hot on the recruiting trail this past weekend adding a commitment from four-star cornerback Dreshun Miller who is one of the top junior college players in the country for the 2019 class.
“I am a Louisiana native,” Miller told GN. “I was born there, but then moved to Atlanta, so I was real familiar with Louisiana.
“They had offered me a few months ago, so I was real familiar with the coaching staff and they were real familiar with me. Me and my family talked about it and right now we felt that this was the best decision for me.”
Miller enjoyed getting to know Orgeron through this process.
“Coach Orgeron is a very straight-forward man,” Miller said. “He is straight to the point and very truthful. He is going to tell you what you don’t want to hear, but what you also need to hear. He is a great man that is really big on family as well.”
Miller (6-feet-2, 175 pounds) is a four-star prospect who attended high school in Marietta, GA, but spent the 2017 season at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, AZ.
Miller is among the top-10 junior college prospects in the nation for the 2019 class.
Miller, who originally committed to Coastal Carolina coming out of high school, says going to junior college was a blessing in disguise.
“I think it was more of me not taking care of my grades,” Miller said. “Coming out of high school, I had just missed it with the eligibility part. But going to junior college was probably the best decision I made.
“It taught me a lot of things about hard work, dedication and focusing on your grades. It was a learning experience. So, now when I do get to LSU, I won’t be just coming out of high school, I’ll already know the steps that it takes to be an elite player.”
Miller will have two years of eligibility left when he arrives in Baton Rouge prior to the start of the 2019 season.
As for how Miller would describe his game from the cornerback position.
“I would say my versatility is my biggest strength. I can play both inside or outside on the field, which is good because it brings a lot of options to the team. I also believe my coverage skills are good as well.”
Miller is looking forward to the chance of playing at LSU and inside of the SEC.
