It doesn’t seem like Miami’s ever coming to a red light with the wave of news, will it? The RedHawks are now up to 15 total commits for the class of 2019 with defensive back Mehki Miller being the newest addition.
I’ve thought long and hard about this decision and decided to continue my academic and athletic career at Miami University. I want to thank my family, coaches, and friends for molding me and helping me make this decision. With that being said I am now COMMITTED!🔴🦅#REDHAWKS pic.twitter.com/JtOW1EeEpc

Miller (Olympia Fields, Ill.; Rich Central Campus)’s a hard-hitting cornerback from Illinois, listed at 6-foot-1, 170 pounds. Playing in a position that’s flooded with guys that are usually 5-foot-10, Miller’s length easily stands out. Watching his highlights on Hudl show that Miller likes to deliver the best hit possible on every tackle made.
Here’s a thought experiment: What if Miami can get Miller to bulk up enough in, let’s say, three years to play more of a nickle role? His playing style is what Miami likes in a corner, but the RedHawks might have to think about moving him around if he grows another inch or two; he’s already 6-foot-1.
Miller’s other offers came from Eastern Michigan, Eastern Kentucky, South Dakota, Northern Iowa and Fordham. Miller is the ninth to commit to Miami this month and the third since Tax Day.
