MILLER FEELING GOOD

Roy Finch, Brennan Clay and now freshman Brandon Williams have Sooner fans elated about their future backfield.

But don't discount sophomore running back Jonathon Miller, who is finally healthy after undergoing season-ending knee injury to repair cartilage damage in his knee two seasons ago.

“I feel real good,” Miller said. “Best I've felt since the injury.”

Miller averaged 7.2 yards on 18 carries as a true freshman before going down with the injury midway through the season.

Miller tried to come back last season, but the knee was still bothering him.

“It was hurting me through two-a-days,” he said. So I decided to take the redshirt year and get it right.”

At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, Miller is OU's biggest back and could be a valuable foil to scatbacks Finch and Clay.

“That's the good thing about our backfield,” Miller said. “We got guys who are quick twitch and guys that can run you over.”
