Miller (6-4 310) is a 4-star prospect and the No. 11 offensive tackle in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 65 prospect overall in the 2019 recruiting class.
Miller visited Ohio State last month, and currently the Buckeyes are the Crystal Ball favorites.
A First-Team All-State selection as a junior, Miller plays all over the offensive line for his Buford High football team. He is a punishing run blocker who plays to the whistle.
Ohio State currently has one offensive lineman already committed in West Virginia’s Doug Nester. Nester is the No. 8 offensive tackle in the nation. The Buckeyes are also very much involved with 5-star Michigan tackle Devontae Dobbs and 5-star West Virginia tackle Darnell Wright.
It is a pretty good year for offensive linemen in the state of Ohio as well. The state’s top lineman — and the No. 2 overall player in the state — is Akron (Hoban) guard Nolan Rumler, who has been committed to Michigan since July. OSU will continue to see if Rumler (6-4 290) will listen, however.
Cincinnati (Anderson) guard Zeke Correll (6-4 270) holds an Ohio State offer. He is the No. 9 player in the state and the No. 10 guard in the nation. Notre Dame could be a player here as well. Ryan Jacoby (Mentor) received an Ohio State offer about a month ago. He also holds offers from Michigan, Oregon, and West Virginia. Jacoby (6-5 270) was a First-Team All-State performer last year.
Another in-state offensive line prospect to watch is Dayton Dunbar’s Jonathan Allen (6-5 315). Last season was his first playing football, as he has spent most of his high school years playing basketball. He has been to Ohio State and clearly he is only going to get better with more experience. Allen does not yet have an OSU offer. He is currently ranked as a 3-star prospect and the No. 49 offensive tackle in the nation.
Cincinnati (Moeller) guard Zach Carpenter (6-5 310) does not yet have an Ohio State offer. A 3-star prospect, he is ranked the No. 16 offensive guard in the nation, and holds offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, and Duke.
There are a large number of offensive line targets across the nation and inside the state for the Buckeyes, and it is expected that they will attempt to sign quite a few of them to rebuild an offensive line that will have lost multiple starters both last year and this year.
