Miller Transfers to Truman-Another Blair Oaks Bulldog

Former Westran High School lineman Ben Miller has transferred to Truman State University to play football. The former KRES All-Star signed with Missouri Western out of high school and took a redshirt. Bulldogs coach Gregg Nesbitt said they tried to get Miller out of high school….

Miller was a two-time All-State selection at Westran. He had five sacks in helping the Hornets to the state semifinals his senior year.

The Blair Oaks pipeline to Truman produced a receiver-defensive back on National Signing Day last week. Jake Closser joins coach Nesbitt and the Bulldogs after being a part of two state championship teams…..

On Signing Day, 16 high school seniors and two transfers made Truman their official choice. Coach Nesbitt explained why this recruiting year was much more difficult….

Nesbitt and his staff were also able to land KRES All-Star players Jacksyn Miller of Moberly, Noah Copeland of Kirksville, and Dominic Dabney of Milan. You can find the full list with this story at
