Iowa State added one of the more physical cornerback prospects out of Missouri.
Derrick Miller became the latest defensive back in the 2019 recruiting class for the Cyclones following this month’s recent verbal commitment.
The John Burroughs School (Saint Louis) incoming senior reflected on the impression made by cornerbacks coach D.K. McDonald and head coach Matt Campbell.
“Iowa State was the best place for me,” he said. “I think coach D.K. and coach Campbell had a lot to do with it as they really showed love and care for me and my family.”
Earlier this Spring, the Big 12 program hosted Miller for an unofficial visit in late March just a day prior to an Iowa City trip to see in-state rival Iowa.
He had also been on campus in Ames during January following a scholarship offer from the Cyclones.
Miller holds other offers from the Hawkeyes, Indiana State, Western Michigan, Miami (OH), Arkansas State, Bowling Green, Ball State, Harvard, Austin Peay, NIU, Air Force, Western Illinois, Cornell, Eastern Michigan, New Mexico, Princeton, Fordham, Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, Southeast Missouri and South Dakota.
“Recruitment is never really shut down until you sign,” he said. “But I do plan on staying a Cyclone.”
