PERSONAL: He's a sociology major at USC. His brother, Jeff, is a sophomore defensive tackle at UCLA. He grew up in Texas before moving to California in the late 1990s.
JIMMY MILLER ON: The possibility of lining up opposite his brother, Jeff, in the UCLA game: "It'd be interesting to see what would happen if we got matched up against each other. Once we got in the game, he'd be like any other player. I guess you'd just have to play the game and beat the guy across from you. After the game I'm sure we'd talk about everything that happened on the field. When he signed with UCLA, I called him to congratulate him because getting a Division I scholarship is a big deal. But then I said, 'Once a year, we're not going to be able to talk to each other because USC and UCLA is a big rivalry.'"
