Pair of SEC schools included in top 5 for 4-star 2022 OT Blake Miller
It’s possible that Blake Miller, a 4-star offensive tackle in the 2022 class, will be staying in state by choosing to play his college ball at Ohio State. But that’s not a sure thing yet. And there are two SEC schools still trying to sway him away.
On Monday, Miller shared his top five schools on Twitter, which include Auburn and Florida. In addition to those schools and Ohio State, Clemson and Michigan also made the cut.
Miller, who is 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds, is the No. 23 tackle in the 2022 class per the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is the No. 9 recruit from Ohio and the No. 212 overall recruit, and he currently attends Strongsville High School.
Kentucky, LSU, Tennessee and Texas A&M had also given Miller offers, but none of those SEC schools made his short list.
Neither Auburn nor Florida has many commitments in the 2022 recruiting class just yet. The Tigers have two (3-star cornerbacks Andre Stewart and Brian Dilworth) and the Gators have one (4-star wide receiver Syveion Ellis). Miller would provide an immediate boost to either team’s class.
However, the 247Sports Crystal Ball is currently predicting that Miller will commit to the Buckeyes. So, the other four schools may have some work to do to convince him to join their program instead.
