First Gridironstuds.com Member to Be Drafted set for 2012
I have long waited for this day to come. Gridironstuds.com was launched in 2009 and our initial 2009 class was a great one sure to produce some NFL talent. Names like Tavon Austin (WVU), Rueben Randle (LSU), Russell Sheppard (LSU), Jamaal Berry (OSU) and William Gholston (MSU) stacked our initial class and left many of our visitors excited about their futures. However, with his early declaration for the NFL draft, former Miami Killian High School product and now former Miami Hurricane Lamar Miller is poised to be the first Gridironstuds.com member drafted into the NFL. After redshirting in 2009, Miller turned some heads in the 2010 season rushing for 646 yards and 6 TDs while averaging an unusual 6.0 yards per carry. Miller followed that up with a 2011 redshirt sophomore year that saw him gain 1,272 yards average 5.6 yards per carry and hit the end zone nine times. With that, Miller has declared for the NFL draft and will take his talents to the NFL come April. There’s always the chance that someone else from our 2009 class will declare early but until then, it seems that Lamar Miller will be the first member to be drafted.
