Five-star center Harry Miller is sticking with his commitment to Ohio State and will officially be a Buckeye by the end of the month, reports Bill Kurelic of Bucknuts.
Miller had not yet made a public statement affirming his commitment to Ohio State following the news of Urban Meyer's retirement and the announcement of Ryan Day as the program's next head coach, but Miller's mother tell Kurelic the five-star center will sign with Ohio State on Dec. 19.
From Kurelic of 247Sports.com:
Buford (Ga.) offensive lineman Harry Miller and his mother Kristina and father Sean have been and continue to be very close with Urban Meyer. So, on Tuesday, Dec. 4 when Meyer announced his retirement the news reverberated down to Buford and hit the Miller’s hard. Harry did not issue a statement, he turned his phone off until he could get home and talk things over with his mother and father.
The Miller’s knew the news was coming as Meyer called them on Monday, Dec. 3 to let them know where things were likely headed. But dealing with the reality was not easy. The fact that Ryan Day being named to take over for Meyer after the Rose Bowl was huge to the Miller’s.
On Thursday, Dec. 6, Day made an in-home visit with Harry and his family. That visit went very well. Kristina followed up with a talk with Day on the phone on Sunday night. And now there is no longer any question in regards to Harry being a Buckeye. According to Kristina, Harry will sign with the Buckeyes on Dec. 19.
Miller is the No. 2 center in the 2019 class and the No. 31 player overall. He is Ohio State's second highest-rated commitment in the class behind only five-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson, who has also affirmed his commitment to the Buckeyes.
Four-star linebacker Cade Stover will also sign with Ohio State in December, according to Jeremy Birmingham of Lettermen Row.
