Former Dunbar standout Horace Miller signs with Seahawks

Former Dunbar standout Horace Miller has officially joined the Seattle Seahawks.

He was signed by the Super Bowl champions on Tuesday following a successful rookie minicamp tryout, according to the team.


Miller was an all-state pass rusher at Dunbar where he won a state championship with the  Poets.

Miller went undrafted out of Texas-El Paso.

He participated in the Ravens' local prospects day and the NFL super regional combine at the Detroit Lions' Ford Field prior to the draft.

Miller ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout where he also registered a 37.5-inch vertical leap, a 10-10 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times with a 6.99 three-cone drill.

The 6-foot, 237-pounder was an All-Conference USA honorable-mention selection as a junior when he recorded six sacks and 7.5 tackles for losses and blocked a field goal against Oklahoma and two sacks against Wisconsin. He had 53 tackles last season as a senior.

Miller also led the Miners with five sacks as a sophomore in 2011 after sitting out the 2010 season when he transferred from Louisville.

Miller recorded 29 sacks as a senior at Dunbar after recording 17 sacks as a junior while splitting time between defensive end and linebacker.

He was named the Metro Defensive Player of the Year as a senior when he had 133 tackles and forced six fumbles before signing with Louisville.

Miller played in 11 games as a true freshman for Louisville before deciding to transfer.
