One of the biggest men on UCLA’s campus is about to go pro. UCLA offensive tackle Kolton Miller is passing on his senior season for a shot at playing in the NFL next fall. According to the Los Angeles Times, Miller has signed with a sports agency, Octagon, thus bringing his college eligibility to a close as he moves on to play professionally at the next level. The agency announced Miller as its newest client with a message on Twitter.
Miller just finished his redshirt junior season and started every game of the 2017 season. He previously had a foot injury in 2016 that cost him some playing time, but he appears to be in good position to potentially be drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Other football players currently represented by Octagon include Devonte Booker, Patrick Chung, Ross Travis, Stepfan Taylor, and former UCLA defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes. Current Arizona State head coach Herm Edwards and Stanford head coach David Shaw are also clients of Octagon. Other sports stars signed by Octagon include Stephen Curry and Felix Hernandez.
