Meet the new Longhorns: WR Damion Miller’s ‘explosiveness’ can impact UT

Posted February 1st, 2017


Damion Miller, WR, John Tyler

FYI: 6-1/193; No. 152nd-ranked overall prospect and No. 44-ranked wide receiver. Ranked No. 24 on the Fab 55.

Update: Miller’s combination of athleticism and technique makes him a candidate to earn snaps as a freshman. A holdover pledge of Charlie Strong’s, Miller remained committed to Texas after the coaching change and is one of the top five players in the Longhorns’ class. Long-tenured commitments can get lost in the shuffle. Miller probably falls into that category; he’s a player that Texas fans and coaches would’ve coveted down the stretch heading into signing day. Miller can play inside or outside. He’s a smooth route runner with big-play ability after the catch. His jumping ability makes him a red zone threat.
