Recruiting out of the Tampa Bay Area is the main priority when it comes to recruiting ballers to join the USF Football squad. The number three player on my 2021 USF Football Top 5 Players List is exactly that—Bay Made.
This East Bay High School product, and transfer via Southeastern University (Lakeland, FL), stands at 5’10” and weighs in at 180 pounds.
Number three on this list is Wide Receiver, Bryce Miller.

Miller has been a part of the USF Football team since he walked on in 2018. Due to NCAA Transfer Rules, Miller did not see any time on the field.
During the 2019 season, Miller appeared in 12 games while starting in seven of them mostly in the Slot position. He finished in 3rd on the team in receiving yards with 232 and 2nd on the team in receiving touchdowns with four of them.
This past season was career-changing for Miller. On a team that included DeVontres Dukes (Denver Broncos), he tallied 33 receptions for a grand total of 327 receiving yards (1st on the team) and three touchdowns (2nd on the team). Miller was an absolute ray of sunshine on a team that won a single game the entire season (The Citadel, 27-6).
Charlie Weis Jr.: "Bryce (Miller) has done a good job, being Mr. Consistent, catching the ball and generating some explosive (plays) as well."… He also mentioned @WhartonWildcats alum DeVontres Odoms-Dukes among the WRs who have stood out early @USFFootball

For this upcoming season, it is safe to say that the future is bright as long as Miller is on the Bulls’ team. He is everything that Head Coach Jeff Scott needs in a Wide Receiver—consistency, reliability, and explosiveness.

Whether it is Cade Fortin, Jarren Williams, Timmy McClain, or Katravis Marsh at Quarterback, Miller is going to be getting plenty of targets.
Do not be surprised if Miller ends the 2021 season with over 500 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns. He will be a man on a mission once the season starts.
Make sure to look out for #19 on offense when the Bulls kick off their season at N.C. State on Sept. 2.
