You can tell Texas Tech defensive end commit Houston Miller had a solid official visit to Lubbock, since it was followed by a seven hour nap when he got home.
Miller experienced the Lubbock food scene, nightlife and everything Texas Tech had to offer; with many of the guys he’ll be spending the next few years with.
“There is no way I can declare a favorite part, it was just an amazing trip overall because of the atmosphere and the family feel that we all put off and the way that we all just feel with each other,” he said.
The one who showed him such a good time was freshman Breiden Fehoko who hosted him this weekend and gave him a glimpse of what Lubbock has to offer. Miller said he was the perfect host because they will both be on the d-line together and they have gotten really close over the last few months.
Lubbock is very familiar to Miller who has visited many times, but no matter how many times he comes he always has a good time. It’s almost like it could never get old for him.
“The atmosphere always sticks out to me. I always feel like I’m at home,” he said. “I’m always having fun no matter what it is I’m doing, I’m having the time of my life out there so, just the atmosphere and being out there with all the guys makes me excited to get there again.”
Miller’s parents came with him on his official visit he said that they loved everything Texas Tech has to offer and they are “really happy” that is where he will be the next four years.
Somewhere in between all the fun, the coaches and players got down to business to talk football. Miller attended position meetings with the d-line and also talked to new special teams coach Joe Robinson about his role on special teams.
Miller and the defensive line commits also took note of coach Kevin Patrick’s plans for the class when they get there and remind them of the impact they want to make on this university, which was “intense”.
The cherry on top of the visit was the 16-ounce rib eye from Las Brisas, Miller enjoyed his last night in Lubbock which made him to want stay.
“Oh man, I didn’t want to leave. I said coach do I really have to go home, can I just move in already. I’m just really excited to get there,” Miller said. “It’s the home for me and that’s the place I need to be.”
