3.2.16 - Verbally committed to Samford.
6/18/15 - 6-foot-4, 195-pound left-handed pitcher. Fluid delivery, tall and fall, lands squared, works against front side some. High ¾ arm slot, loose arm. Fastball showed cutting natural cutting action, 80-82 mph, showed feel for the zone. Curveball works on 1/7 plane, fastball arm speed, 70-72 mph. Changeup offers sinking action, ranged 73-76 mph.
2.15.15 - 6-foot-4, 195-pound left-handed works from a long, loose, high ¾ arm slot, 79-81 mph fastball thrown for strikes. Toe up at balance point, gathers well over the rubber, front hip leads towards home plate, lands slightly closed at foot strike, spins off slightly. 67-72 mph breaking ball has slurve shape, feel for strikes. 71-73 mph changeup flashed cutting action.
8/2/14 - Miller is a 6-foot-4, 200-pound left-hander with huge feet and a frame he is still growing into.  He looks young, and has impressed over the summer with a fastball that touches 85 mph.  At the Future Games Miller’s fastball sat more in the 80-82 mph range, but he impressed with his ability to make adjustments from day one to day two.  It’s been documented in the past that his heel moves forward on his drive leg, causing him to throw across his body, and limit his ability to repeat his delivery.  Miller struck out the side on day one, creating a tough angle for left-handed hitters with his fastball, and sweeping slurve at 68-71 mph.  On day two, he showcased the same stuff, and again had a one-two-three inning, but not in the traditional fashion.  His first hitter reached on an infield error, and Miller promptly showcased a nasty pickoff move for out number one.  After a dropped third strike on a swinging  70 mph slurve, Miller induced the next hitter into 1-6-3 double play groundout.  Added strength should see Miller pitching in the mid 80’s next spring, and possibly higher over the next two years.

6/12/14 - 6-foot-4, 200-pound LHP currently ranked No. 37 in Illinois’ class of 2016 was the top pitching prospect at this year’s Underclass Trials.  Currently uncommitted.  Impressed with easy, quick high ¾ arm action from smooth delivery producing 83-85 mph fastballs with late cut boring in on right-handed hitters.  Shoulders work uphill as he really loads lower half and gets a good hip bump going towards home plate.  Struggles to command fastball at times due to back foot heel slipping towards home plate on the mound, throwing off his direction towards home plate, causing him to land closed on his front foot, limiting his extension and feel out front.  Locking back foot in on the mound should fix the problem, and help him repeat his delivery more consistently.  Showed improved feel of 70-72 mph curveball with occasional 12/6 action that backed up at times.  Also threw 70-75 mph changeup with good arm speed but erratic command.  Miller’s frame and clean arm action make it easy to see him operating in the upper 80’s or low 90’s in the next couple years.

4/9/14 - Currently ranked No. 37 in Illinois’ 2016 class.  Sturdy, proportionally strong 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame, solid lower half, room for continued physical development. Fastball sat at 81-82 in the first two innings, touching 83 once. Works downhill, straight fastball consistently thrown for strikes. Clean arm action, high-3/4 slot, could likely add velocity if lengthens out stride. Curveball registered between 64-66 mph, consistently around plate with it.
4/29/13 - Currently ranked as the No. 8 player in Illinois’ 2016 class. Athletically built 6-foot-2, 190 pound freshman with projectable frame. Works from high-3/4 slot, some effort in delivery, repeats well. For his age, he shows command of three pitches, two of which he can throw in any count.  Miller attacks hitters with his 81-83 mph fastball. His curveball has the potential to be a plus pitch. Has a lot of feel and command for it as a freshman. He threw a get-me-over curve at 61-63; also threw a 66-68 breaker with depth. Miller pitches from a high ¾ slot.  Also, Miller showed some juice at the plate, going 2 for 3 with a double. 

Physical left-hander with intriguing upside
