Miller Discusses Texas Tech Commitment

Get the scoop on Keller defensive end Houston Miller's decision to commit to Texas Tech.

Texas Tech added its third defensive recruit of the weekend after Keller defensive end Houston Miller committed to the Red Raiders on Saturday night.

“I woke up that morning and said ‘I want to be a Red Raider,” Miller said.

This 6-foot-3 and 230-pound three-star prospect runs a 4.67-second 40-yard-dash and is a versatile athlete. He said he will most likely take over the hybrid position on Tech’s defensive line and mentioned playing on special teams and maybe tight end.

Miller said with possibly early playing time and the defensive scheme at Texas Tech he knows he will be able to have fun on the field with their program.

Another thing that made Miller’s decision easy for him was the relationship he had developed with Texas Tech’s defensive line coach Mike Smith and cornerbacks coach Kevin Curtis.

“Those guys are a phenomenal coaching staff. They have a passion for football like I do. The way they want to play ball is the way I want to,” Miller said.

Not only the coaching staff has shown Miller love, but Red Raider Nation has too. Miller said he couldn’t wait to be in Lubbock to start meeting fans, and everyone else that calls themselves Red Raiders.

“They [the fans] have shown me lots of love. It means a lot having a lot of guys believing in me already.” Miller said.

Miller added that when the season approaches he will take his official visit to Lubbock and also try to make as many home games as possible to soak in that Texas Tech football atmosphere.

Without his faith in God and his family’s support Miller said this all wouldn’t be possible and that their guidance has helped him throughout his recruitment. “It’s a blessing to call myself a Red Raider. I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made. I have the best fan base behind me. It will be fun,” Miller said.

Miller is the 55th overall defensive end in the nation and tenth in the Lone Star state. He chose Texas Tech over offers from 15 different schools including Air Force, Cal, Duke, Nevada, Texas State and Vanderbilt.
