A big summer for NC State on the recruiting trail got even better Thursday evening, as Fort Pierce, Florida linebacker Brock Miller made his public pledge to the Wolfpack. The 6-3, 210-pound Miller well compliments fellow NCSU linebacker commitment Garrett Hooker, an in-state native of Thomasville, North Carolina.
While the 6-2, 225-pound Hooker appears to be a potential prototypical middle linebacker, Miller is an outside linebacker prospect. Both players recorded well over 100 tackles last fall on the gridiron, with Miller reportedly making 118 tackles in 2014 at John Carroll High School, as well as over 20 tackles for loss and nine sacks. Miller showed off his athleticism by also playing wide receiver.
With Hooker and Miller on board, NCSU heads into August and the upcoming football season in a solid place recruiting at the linebacker position in the class of 2016.

I want to thank my parents and everyone else that has helped me along the way. I want to thank every school that has recruited me and gave me a chance to play at the next level. However, at the end of the day I can only pick one. With that being said, I would like to say that I’m joining the Wolfpack and committing to NC State! GO PACK #1pack1goal” said Miller Thursday evening on Twitter.[/callout2]
The 13th commitment for NCSU in the rising senior class, Miller is the first so far for the Wolfpack from the state of Florida. But its the second straight year that Dave Doeren and his staff have gone to the Sunshine State and gotten a linebacker, as in this past February’s signing class, the Wolfpack picked up Riley Nicholson from Kissimmee.
Miller chose the Wolfpack over finalists Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Kentucky — all schools he’s visited recently.
