Kipp Adams of ESPN passes on Miller's tweet on his commitment:
Four-star LB Christian Miller ---> RT @ChristianMillr: Officially committed to THE University of Alabama. Roll Tide.— Kipp Adams (@KippLAdams) July 25, 2013
Miller is 6'4'', 222 pounds and runs a 4.74 40, according to 247Sports. This is truly a case of "the rich getting richer" (save your jokes 'Bama haters), considering that Miller is ranked as the No. 3 outside linebacker nationally and the No. 1 player from South Carolina, according to 247Sports.
Alabama didn't need much help at linebacker to begin with, but per usual, the Crimson Tide keep on rolling.
Saban's 2014 class now features 16 commitments, including three linebackers. Miller joins 4-star inside linebackers Shaun Hamilton and Zach Whitley in a group that's sure to replenish the Tide's depth chart. Linebacker depth is extremely important in a 3-4 system, so the significance of Miller's commitment can't be overstated.
Alabama now has the No. 1 class in the nation, according to the 247Sports team rankings, jumping from No. 4 over a very hot Tennessee program and Florida State.
Alabama's class looks great now, but there's a high possibility that it will get much, much better by signing day.
