While in Austin for the Orange-White spring game, 2021 Tucson (Az.) Salpointe Catholic offensive tackle Jonah Miller nabbed an offer from the Texas Longhorns, he announced on Twitter.
Words cannot describe how honored and happy I am to say I received an offer from the University of TEXAS Thank you too @CoachHand & @CoachTomHerman & @Bigfella57 & @LancerFBcoach for this great opportunity!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/zca5vlpwuq— jonahmiller (@jonahmiller17) April 13, 2019
Miller’s Texas offer becomes just his second overall, as the four-star talent also owns an invitation from Arizona State, where he unofficially visited in early February. That should change in the very near future, though, as Miller boasts the size and skill set that should see him slide fairly seamlessly into a Power 5 program, and ultimately, the NFL, as detailed by 247Sports Blair Angulo:
“Broad-shouldered frame with strong lower half. Carries 285 pounds well, with plenty of room to add mass. Impressively agile for his size. Repeatedly reaches second level to open running lanes. Finishes blocks well with nasty streak. Physical off the point of attack. Uses hands well in pass protection. Top-notch run blocker who seals his gap. Could do better to maintain pad level through contact. Has to improve flexibility and slide his feet against speed rushers. Potential multi-year starter at Power Five level and NFL Draft Day 3 selection.”
Miller now becomes the eighth 2021 offensive tackle prospect to earn an offer from Texas.
At 6’6, 285 pounds, Miller is ranked as the nation’s No. 198 player and as the No. 24 offensive tackle, per 247Sports.
