One of the fastest rising recruits in Michigan this summer is Saline defensive back Tyrone Miller. The 6-foot, 178-pound prospect has picked up multiple scholarship offers and is on the radar of both the Spartans and Wolverines.
On June 14, Miller stopped into Michigan State’s camp with a single MAC scholarship offer. He left East Lansing and shortly afterward picked up three offers. He then camped at U-M and continued to impress there.
Miller now has six scholarship offers and is being closely evaluated by the Spartans, Wolverines, Indiana and Wisconsin.
At MSU’s camp, Miller spent most of his time working with defensive back coach Harlon Barnett.
“It was great, (Barnett) usually pulled me back just and asked some general questions to get to know me better,” Miller said. “He also explained how they do things at Michigan State. I think they’re a great school and would be a great school to play for.”
Miller is looking forward to a big fall for Saline and garnering more scholarship offers in the process. Miller is currently ranked the No. 22 player in Michigan for the class of 2015 by SpartanMag.com.
