USC Football Recruiting: C.J. Miller De-Commits From 2017 Class
Three-star safety C.J. Miller announced his de-commitment from the 2017 USC football recruiting class, opening up his recruitment ahead of Signing Day.
The 2017 USC football recruiting class is short one player after three-star safety C.J. Miller backed off his commitment to the Trojans on Wednesday afternoon.
The player out of McEachern in Powder Springs, Georgia took to Twitter to announce his de-commitment.
“Thanks to everybody at USC but at this time I will be fully opening back up my recruiting,” Miller wrote.

Miller is the No. 76 safety in the class and the No. 106-rated player in the state of Georgia. At 6-foot-1, 188 pounds, he fit the mold of USC’s safety targets.
However, with the Trojans landing the commitment of four-star safety Bubba Bolden and still pursuing four-star Isaiah Pola-Mao, who recently put USC in his Top 3, Miller likely saw the writing on the wall.

USC’s current haul is headlined by the likes of five-star running back Stephen Carr, four-star quarterback Jack Sears and four-star defensive end Hunter Echols, but the Trojans will be looking to finish strong when Signing Day rolls around.
