College programs are always doing everything they can to get ahead of the game in recruiting, and Texas Tech may have helped their cause with a player in the class of 2017.
The Red Raiders were the first to offer Tyler John Tyler wide receiver Damion Miller back in December and remains his lone offer.
Although the Red Raiders are Miller’s first, he was not the first to know and it surprised him while taking a peek at social media.
“I first saw it on Twitter, my coach told me,” Miller said. “My eyes got super big and I was just smiling showing my friends.”
Miller, who currently stands at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, reeled in 26 receptions for 614 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014.
Miller still has two years in high school left to play, but his friends seem to be encouraging the young star for his future.
“My friends were happy for me. They were telling me to keep balling on the field.”
Miller hasn't visited the campus before but plans on attending Texas Tech’s junior day Saturday.
