Alabama landed the 16th commitment of its 2014 recruiting class Thursday when linebacker Christian Miller of Columbia, S.C., announced on Facebook he has chosen the Crimson Tide. The news was confirmed by multiple Internet recruiting services

He was a Florida commitment before decommiting in May.

Miller stands 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds and is rated a four-star prospect by, and 247sports, which lists him as the No. 3 outside linebacker recruit nationally.

“It feels really good,” Miller told 247sports. “I didn’t want to rush anything. I feel like I knew where I want to go and once I found the best place for me, to go on ahead and do it. That’s how I feel about Alabama. It does feel good to have it done so I can focus on my senior year and relax a little.”

Miller is the son of former NFL linebacker Corey Miller, who played at South Carolina. Corey Miller spent seven seasons with the New York Giants and one with the Minnesota Vikings.
