Miller was suspended in 2017, along with other Florida players, for his part in a credit card fraud scheme. While he was suspended, he was cited for possession of marijuana. Miller missed the entire season. In 2018, he played in all 13 games as a reserve (15 tackles, two for loss, one interception returned for an 82-yard score) and then earned 11 starts in 12 appearances the following year (55 tackles, 5.5 for loss with three sacks, two pass breakups). The Florida native and two-time Class 7A All-State selection at Kathleen High School became the Gators' top tackler in 2020, accumulating 88 tackles (7.5 for loss with 3.5 sacks) and breaking up three passes in 11 games (10 starts). Miller started the first two games of the 2021 season (eight tackles) but suffered a torn biceps tendon and underwent surgery, ending his season. He stayed healthy for most of 2022, starting 11 games (74 tackles, 8.5 for loss, two pass breakups, two forced fumbles), missing one contest due to injury and opting out of the team's Las Vegas Bowl appearance. Miller underwent a procedure to repair a Jones fracture in his foot after the 2022 season; NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Miller has been cleared. -- by Chad Reuter
