 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  If Kansas football linebackers coach Chris Simpson is correct, the best days of Rich Miller's college career are just ahead of him, heading into Miller's first season with the Jayhawks. During his first two years playing for Simpson and head coach Lance Leipold at Buffalo, the linebacker from Detroit took on a small but important role as a reserve within the unit's rotation. The speedy Miller appeared in all seven of the Bulls' games as a backup during their 6-1 2020 season, and he finished with 13 total tackles. Simpson doesn't think those numbers do justice to Miller's value. "He doesn't have a ton of stats, quite honestly. And to be quite frank, I had a pretty veteran group in Buffalo," Simpson said recently, while sharing what he likes about the 6-foot-1, 230-pound junior.

When Simpson was still the linebackers coach at UB, he said his position group the past couple of seasons was filled with linebackers whom he considered to be not only good players, but quality leaders and individuals. "And Rich was one of those," Simpson added. Once Miller put his name into the NCAA's transfer portal, Simpson said the appeal of inviting a known and trusted linebacker on board in Lawrence was obvious. Simpson thinks his pupil still has "a lot of time left to showcase what he can do." - Lawrence Journal World
