We have to admit, this one took us by surprise.

Jarvis Miller, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound tailback and safety for the Windsor Locks/Suffield/East Granby football team, announced his verbal commitment to Penn State University.

The junior ran for 1,611 yards and was an All-Hartford Courant selection in 2013, leading Windsor Locks/Suffield/East Granby to a 7-4 record.

He made the announcement on Saturday.

We knew Windsor Locks was a good football team, but unless you were one of the Pequot schools charged with stopping him, Miller probably eluded your radar. He did for us down here in Shangri La.

I hadn’t even seen film of him until his commitment.

Morgan, which managed to hold Miller to 63 yards rushing on seven carries in a 43-6 victory last year, seemed fired up about it.

Watching his official Hudl highlights now, at 6-foot-2, Miller certainly stands out. The best way we can describe him is the Pequot version of NFA’s Marcus Outlow.

At tailback, he has stature, good speed and — probably his most enduring trait: patience. On defense, he sees plays develop, makes good decisions on the fly and strikes like a missle.

Based on Miller’s Tweets to congratulatory friends and fans, it looks like he’ll play as a defensive back.

He’s the second Connecticut football player to commit for 2015. Fairfield Prep 6-foot-6 behemoth lineman Anthony Palazzolo committed to Boston College just before Christmas.
