Texas to CU: Chris Miller Commits to the Buffs!

The speedy athlete becomes the 5th in the past week to join The Rise.

Tyler Lytle yesterday and Denton, TZ athlete Chris Miller today. The Colorado Buffaloes coaching staff is certainly on a roll. Miller becomes the fifth commit in June, when the class doubled in size.

He ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash with a 40.2-inch vertical leap at The Opening regional in March in Dallas. At the end of the camp his scores had him with the fourth overall rating among players in attendance. He earned first-team all-district on both side of the ball as a junior.

Miller will likely start out at cornerback for the Buffaloes. He becomes the fourth commit from Texas and the ninth overall. All of the Buffaloes verbals are from Colorado, California and Texas.

Welcome aboard, Chris!

Notes: From Rivals: "It is smart to recruit Texas. Texas is where the best play," Miller said with a smile. "They want me here and they have shown that. They said they would probably put me as a cover corner if I was here and they would try me out as a returner, too. And the one thing I love about Colorado is, if I didn't play football, I would still want to go here."
