Speedy RB Dante Miller (5-9 185), a grad transfer from Columbia who was First Team All-Ivy League in 2021, made an unofficial visit to USC Friday with his mother. Miller, who lives in Rockingham, NC has a PWO offer from Shane Beamer, and he said Friday night there’s a very good chance he’ll be a Gamecock this fall.
“I had a great time. I met with the coaches. Heard a lot of good things. I really love it there” Miller said. “The staff was really genuine. I really loved how honest the head coach is. He’s really genuine, a really good man. One of the most genuine coaches I’ve met. It would be an honor to play for Coach Beamer.”
Miller wasn’t ready to go public with any kind of commitment announcement Friday, so Beamer will have to hold off on that commitment alert tweet a little longer.
“Coach Beamer wanted to stress the fact that I wasn’t being rushed, and there’s no rush, but I love it there,” Miller said. “The grad school actually is pretty amazing for sports management. The sports management is number one internationally. Going there for grad school would actually be just as good as an undergrad education from an Ivy League perspective. Going to their grad school would actually be a very good benefit for me.”
Miller picked up another offer Friday night from Delaware but said that doesn’t change his thinking. He’s looking at next Friday for publicly finalizing his plans. Miller said if he commits to the Gamecocks, he would not enroll until late May or early June.
Miller was one of two transfer prospects to visit USC Friday. The other was former Virginia linebacker West Weeks.
