The country’s second-ranked center and Georgia’s sixth-ranked prospect in the Class of 2019, Miller committed to Ohio State after a year of intense recruitment by the Buckeyes entire coaching staff.
Miller, 6-foot-4 and 310-pounds, was a top target for Ohio State for much of the last year and is a player that they expect to lead them on the field and off of it.
There’s very little separation between Miller and the country’s No. 1-ranked center, Clay Webb from Alabama.
A straight-A student, Miller is a future captain at Ohio State. He is a tremendous offensive lineman capable of dominating the line of scrimmage against the run and the pass thanks to great balance. He’s athletic enough to also play defensive tackle at Buford.
Expect Harry Miller to be the next in a long line of great Buckeyes centers.
This is the type of person that will excel in Urban Meyer’s program, a quiet, steady leader who gravitates toward hard work and will seek out ways to improve himself and the team around him.
I wouldn’t be shocked if Miller started his Ohio State career at guard while he learns the offense and the system in Columbus before he moves to center later in his career.
Ohio State needed a big-time center in its 2019 class and with the commitment of Buford (Ga.) 4-star prospect Harry Miller, they got just that.
Miller is physically exactly what you want from the middle of your offensive line, standing in at a stout 6-foot-4 inches and with a college-ready 310-pound build.
That’s just half of the story with Miller, and that’s what makes him a really special kid. The other half, the person that Miller is, is probably what drew him to the Buckeyes the most.
There’s the academics of course, and Miller is as good a student as he is a football player. He’s not gotten a “B” on his grade card since the fourth grade and collected a cool 34 on the ACT. His commitment to his school work had led a lot of people in Georgia to believe that he’d eventually end up at Stanford as opposed to a “football factory” like Ohio State.
But the Buckeyes and Miller connected on a different, deeper level.
“The Buckeyes got him,” shared one source closely to connected to Georgia high school football. “Because they connected with him on a spiritual level through his mission work.”
(You can read about that mission work here, and you should.)
There’s going to be a lot of pressure on Miller to fill some big shoes in Columbus, though he won’t be expected to do that as soon as he gets on campus, of course.
The good news is that there may not be a player in the country more emotionally and mentally capable of handling what Ohio State will present than Harry Miller.
