Tyler Legacy High running back Jamarion Miller pledges to play football at Texas

Jamarion Miller (far left) celebrates with family members after his older brother, Damion, signs with Texas on Feb. 1, 2017. Now a star running back at Tyler Legacy High, Jamarion has announced that he will play football for the Longhorns.

If all goes according to plan, Texas will keep some of the state's top talent in its backfield.

On Monday, Jamarion Miller announced that he will play football at Texas. Miller will be a senior at Tyler Legacy High this fall. He is considered a four-star prospect on 247Sports' composite rankings.

Miller is also the second-ranked running back in the state. The top 2022 running back in Texas is Jaydon Blue, who pledged to the Longhorns in February.

As a junior, Miller rushed for 1,631 yards on 166 attempts. He also averaged 16.6 yards over his 28 receptions. Miller scored 28 offensive touchdowns.
