After visiting Texas Tech’s junior day, it might be the right offer.
“It was pretty good. I really like the campus out there. I really liked the practices, how they throw the ball. I like it all.”
The rising junior jumped in the car with his parents after a track meet to head to Lubbock.
“I was tired, especially because I had a track meet the day before,” Miller said. “So when I got to my house, I packed all of my stuff and I was asleep just about the whole way. It was so long.”
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound receiver was able to speak with some of the other recruits. One notable duo he mentioned were the twins from Anderson brothers of Mineola. Miller was also able to meet with the coaching staff.
“I met most of them. I met the head coach. (We) had a pretty good conversation.”
Miller continued on with how his conversation went with Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
“Oh, it was pretty good. I felt like we really gelled. They said they wanted me there, and I felt good talking to them.”
Texas Tech has long been known as “Wide Receiver U” after producing the likes of Michael Crabtree (a first round draft pick), Wes Welker (multiple starts in the Super Bowl) and Danny Amendola (Super Bowl Champion). Miller said he did not know the previous history of the position at the school, because he started following the Red Raiders in 2014.
Tech fans may cringe when they realize Miller’s first taste of Texas Tech football came during a 4-8 season, but if it weren’t for an East Texas connection, Miller may not have ever seen a Tech game.
“Pat Mahomes, he’s from East Texas,” Miller revealed his connection to Texas Tech. “Ever since he’s been going there, I’ve been watching them play a lot.”
Not only did Miller enjoy the campus, the coaching staff and having an East Texas connection, but he noticed something that would make any receiver start to lick their lips in practice.
“I like how they were throwing the ball a lot,” Miller said. “I’m a receiver, so I really liked how they were throwing it.”
