Football Announces First Commitment for Class of 2023

CASTLETON, Vt. – Castleton University football head coach Tony Volpone released the program's first official member for the Class of 2023 on Monday afternoon, announcing Nate Miller's commitment to the Spartan football program.

Miller will come to Castleton in the fall from Hoosick Falls, New York, where he played on both the offensive and defensive lines. A two-time First Team All-Section 2 defensive lineman, Section 2 All-Star selection and a Second Team Times Union defensive lineman honoree, Miller will add size and depth to the Spartans' defensive line.

"Nate is someone that we have been recruiting for a while," said Volpone. "Our interest never waned in him. He is someone that has the potential to compete early at the line of scrimmage. Our initial thoughts are to play him on the defensive side of the ball and let his natural aggression allow him to make plays."

The 6-foot, 275-pound lineman also received high praise from his high school coach, Ron Jones, for his ability primarily in the running game: "Nate was a strong two-way lineman who demanded extra attention from opponents. He had times where he could dominate the run game on both offense and defense."
