Alabama offers 2019 offensive lineman Harry Miller, a coveted recruit and student

Coveted class of 2019 football recruit Harry Miller could only spend a short time in Tuscaloosa Saturday but still walked away with a scholarship offer.

Buford (Ga.) High School is among the most recruited prep programs in America and Alabama is new to the race for class of 2019 offensive lineman Harry Miller.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder, who aspires to play multiple positions up front, visited Tuscaloosa on Saturday and got good news despite a brief trip.

"We were visiting but in a hurry because we had a meeting for a mission trip," he said. "We were trying to get in and out so we got a quick tour and talked to some of the coaches, and then topped it off with talking to coach (Nick) Saban. We talked about the situation, what was going on, and it was a great experience."

The scholarship offer news is just the latest for Miller, who already had Ohio StateGeorgiaFlorida, AuburnOregonMichigan and several others early on. What Alabama likes in the rising junior is clear on the field as well as off of it.

"He said looking at spring film and what I did in the spring, talking about leverage and hands at this level -- technical points of offensive line play and football in general," he said. "I try to be as coachable as possible and I feel like that makes me stand out among other players. 

"My grades, I'm valedictorian right now, so that makes me stand out among a bunch of other players."

The educational aspect of selecting a school is plenty important to one of the top underclassmen in Georgia. 

"Talking with coach about all of the programs they offer, all the education that Alabama offers, was very exciting," Miller said. "Grades are a top priority for me, also the connections schools have when you graduate and head into the workplace. 

"Of course Alabama has a great football team but just touring around, the whole environment and campus is just really beautiful. The staff was really kind, the facilities were great and I'm just excited to be back, come in for a game day or camp and experience it again." 

Miller mentioned Alabama's July camps as an opportunity to return to Tuscaloosa considering he was unable to compete on Saturday. Ohio State and Michigan are also likely to host him on visits next month as he continues to take his time with the recruiting process.

"Every school has nice facilities, they all have nice things," he said. "But if you base it off of things, the materials and all of that, you'll never be satisfied when you get there. So I'm looking for the feel, the environment an the culture at the schools I visit. And if it feels like home. 

"I'm trying to make sure I make a great decision. If I commit, I want to be 100 percent committed. On Twitter, I see as many decommitments as I see commitments and I don't want to be one of those guys. I want to keep my word and not waste anyone's time."

Maintaining he is wide open with his suitors at this time, Miller does not have a timetable for a decision.
