As announcements go, elite offensive-line prospect Harry Miller’s pledge Sunday to Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class ranks right up there in terms of novelty.
That’s because it started with a message of disappointment and ended with the big man from Buford, Georgia, including the news as if he was dropping the mic.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances our mission team is currently unable to travel to Nicaragua,” Miller wrote on Twitter, referring to a goodwill trip he had been anticipating for a while. “I was planning on making this announcement with the kids from our school, but I am excited to announce I have committed to THE Ohio State University.”
He is the 10th commitment to the OSU class which currently is ranked No.1 in the Big Ten, No.5 nationally according to the 247sports composite of the major recruiting services.
Miller, at 6 feet 4, 310 pounds, is considered a four-star prospect who is the No.2 center nationally, and No.36 among overall prospects.
He had been considered a major lean to the Buckeyes since making his official visit to OSU the weekend of the spring game in April, and visited OSU in an unofficial capacity this weekend. Miller had at least 30 scholarship offers from schools across the country, including Clemson, Georgia and Notre Dame, but it’s believed his final decision came down to a choice between OSU and Stanford.
