Miller served primarily as a third-down back and a goal-line option for Auburn in recent seasons.

He finished his Auburn career with six touchdowns.

Miller signed with Auburn as a touted prospect out of Madison Academy in Huntsville.

He scored two red-zone touchdowns in Auburn’s win at Ole Miss in 2018. He caught another score later in the season on a trick-play pass from Ryan Davis at Alabama.

Miller marks the second running back from last season to depart the team, along with JaTarvious Whitlow. Auburn’s backfield returns a group made up mostly of touted but unproven backs, including D.J. Williams, Mark-Antony Richards and Tank Bigbsy.

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said in a statement on Monday that the conference is targeting late July as a decision-making window as conferences consider scheduling possibilities and cancellations for the 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Auburn football coach Gus Malzahn comments on the team's COVID-19 plan for when its players return to campus to begin training.
