    Three-star safety C.J. Miller decommitted from USC on Wednesday night, leaving the Trojans with 17 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class rankings. 


    Clay Helton’s staff finds itself down a commit as National Signing Day inches closer.

    Three-star prospect C.J. Miller decommitted from USC on Wednesday evening, as the Trojans are now left with 16 total commits in the cycle and sit at No. 13 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings.

    Miller, a native of Powder Springs, Georgia, is ranked as the No. 66 safety in the country and the No. 6 safety in the state. He released a brief statement regarding his decision to back off his pledge to USC.

    “Thanks to everybody at USC, but at this time, I will be fully opening back up my [recruitment].”

    Miller’s announcement comes almost two weeks after the Trojans managed to get 4-star prospect Bubba Bolden, the country’s No. 3-ranked safety, back into the class.

    At 6-foot-1, 190 pounds Miller brings a ton of speed. He has a verified 40-yard-dash time of 4.48 seconds. Although, he claims a 40-time of 4.39 seconds.

    As a safety, he doesn’t shy away from contact. He loves to step up and deliver big hits over the middle, and will even provide some help in the box. More often than not, Miller tries to take the receiver’s head off rather than going for ball. But his motor is solid, and he finds a way to get into the action.

    Keep an eye on both Auburn and UCF as his recruitment comes to a close.
