PSU is a finalist along with Duke, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Miami, Tennessee, Texas A&M and USC.
Coach James Franklin’s program offered Miller, a 6-foot-2, 198-pounder from Silsbee High School in Texas, last month.
Miller had 1,401 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns on 59 receptions for Silsbee last season, per 247sports. He’s the No. 65 overall player in the country from the ’24 Class, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. 247Composite also has him as the No. 13 receiver in the country and the No. 13 player in Texas. Miller is also a basketball player who averaged 17.5 points per game as a sophomore, per 247.
PSU doesn’t have a receiver committed in its 2024 Class yet. The closest thing is probably Quinton Martin, a high-end four-star from Belle Vernon High School near Pittsburgh. Martin is listed as an ATH and can play multiple positions at the college level, but as of now, he’s projected to play running back at Penn State. Penn State has only one receiver signed to the ’23 Class, four-star Carmelo Taylor Patrick Henry High School in Glade Spring, Virginia. Penn State has a new receivers coach and offensive recruiting coordinator, Marques Hagans. Hagans replaced Taylor Stubblefield, who Penn State fired in January.
Silsbee, Texas, is also the hometown of Mark Henry, a former Olympic weightlifter and WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Henry is known as the “World’s Strongest Man.” If Miller commits to PSU, he’ll be among the strongest caliber of players to join the ’24 Class.
