The past week has been huge for Illinois and head coach Lovie Smith. Things continued to move on Monday, as former Oklahoma wide receiver A.D. Miller will join the Illini for the 2019 season.
Miller, a graduate transfer, will be immediately eligible to play for the 2019 season and plans to join Illinois for spring football.
“A.D. Miller is a player who had committed to Illinois at one point in time before eventually signing elsewhere,” Illini head coach Lovie Smith said in a statement. “As his situation changed, A.D. saw an opportunity that was better for him heading into his senior season. This move, like many graduate transfers, is a chance to hit the restart button at a place he is already familiar with and a spot where he can contribute immediately. As I’ve gotten to talk to and know A.D., I have no doubt he will be a positive addition as a player and as a leader for our team.”
All three players were targeted by Illinois as high school recruits.
In three seasons with the Sooners, Miller hauled in 21 catches for 246 yards and four touchdowns. He played in nine games at Oklahoma in 2018, totaling seven catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns.
