NC State linebacker Brock Miller has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal and will look to play his final college year elsewhere. The would-be redshirt-senior will be a graduate transfer with immediate eligibility for the fall of 2020.
Miller appeared in 11 games in 2019 for NC State (all starts) and was credited with 40 tackles (22 solo), 7.0 TFL, 1.0 sack, and 1 pass defended. He also had an interception against ECU (see lead photo) in the season opener, but it was called back due to a defensive penalty.
The Florida native will wrap up his Wolfpack career having appeared in 22 games with 69 tackles (nice) to his credit.
With the stacked linebacker group currently slated to compete for snaps in 2020, the move is probably the best to maximize Miller’s playing time in his final year of collegiate play. Despite starting 11 games, Miller’s playing time decreased over the last half of the season as redshirt-freshman Payton Wilson and true-freshman Jaylon Scott started receiving more snaps. With USC transfer Vi Jones entering the mix this fall, playing time was only going to get tougher to come by.
Thank you, Brock, for all your efforts in the Red & White! Best of luck!
