Texas offer offensive linemen James Brockermeyer, Jonah Miller

Posted April 13th, 2019


Texas handed out a pair of new offers to offensive linemen in the 2021 class in center James Brockermeyer and offensive tackle Jonah Miller at the Orange-White Game on Saturday. It’s a loaded cycle for offensive linemen and the Longhorns are searching out at least a handful of signees to bolster the ranks under assistant coach Herb Hand. Texas already holds three commitments in the 2020 class.

Brockermeyer is the son of former Texas great Blake Brockermeyer. The product of All Saints Episcopal in Fort Worth is 6-3, 243-pound interior line prospect who should easily pack on the weight necessary for football at Texas. His brother Tommy is a five-star offensive tackle in the 2021 class. Texas hopes the family ties bring the pair to Austin.

Miller is a 6-6, 285-pound offensive tackle prospect out of Salpointe Catholic (Ariz.). He also holds an offer from Arizona State. Miller’s teammate, 2020 running back Bijan Robinson, is a high-priority target for the Longhorns.
