4-star receiver talks SMU offer

2017 John Tyler Scout 4-star wide receiver Damion Miller talked with Demo about his SMU offer and interest.

Every so often you come across an athlete with superior measurables. 2017 John Tyler High School wide receiver Damion Miller is one of those guys.

At 6-2, 205 pounds, he has the perfect combination of size and speed (he runs a 4.4 40) and programs are aware.

So far, Miller has six offer: Texas A&M, Houston, Kansas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State University, and SMU.

The Hilltop and the new Chad Morris regime is still relatively unknown to Miller.

“I’m not really sure which SMU coach it was that offered me,” he said. “My coach just texted me and let me know that SMU offered me. I hadn’t really thought about them until they offered me. Basically until they offered me I didn’t know anything about the program. I had only ever heard of them and what they were doing recruitment wise.”

Miller says it’s still too early for him to start talking about where he will play college ball, and that his main focus is on getting his team to state next season.

Last season, Miller didn’t see playing time until later in the season, but when he did he definitely made it count. He finished his sophomore season with 26 catches 614 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns. For those of you still doing the math, that’s 23.6 yards per catch.

The way he performed last season lends well to the idea that he could have a big junior season, especially when considering who his quarterback is.

Miller and John Tyler quarter back Bryson Smith have been teammates for a long time.

“We have a good connection,” Miller said. “We’ve grown up together and played on the same team for a long time. He’s my quarterback.”

Miller says his goals for next season include: helping John Tyler get to state, catching more than 15 touchdowns and tallying up 1,200 yards.
