The 2024 Rice Football recruiting class took off over the weekend including offensive lineman Luke Miller, the newest of the Owls’ commits.
The camp circuit came to South Main this past weekend and the 2024 Rice football recruiting class benefited from the influx of talent onto campus. One such visitor was offensive lineman Luke Miller, who enjoyed his time so much that he decided it was time to make his pledge official. Miller has committed to the Owls.
Miller chose the Owls over offers from Sam Houston, several military academies and a handful of Ivy League institutions. The Owls’ own academics played into his decision to commit to Rice. “The welcoming people and the amazing coaching staff were a huge factor,” Miller told The Roost, “but also the world-class education is something to never pass up on.”
Following a 2023 class that had five offensive line commitments before June at this point last year, Miller represents the first important investment in what is likely to be a smaller haul in the trenches this time around. That’s certainly understandable, especially when the first building block of that next class begins with a player like Miller.
Miller’s tape is a lot of fun to watch, regardless of how much you appreciate good blocking. He’s just so dynamic. From the moment the ball is snapped he’s moving, plowing into his assigned man with intensity and quickness that’s disarming and impressive.
Above all, though, Miller stressed how thankful he is to be in this position. “I’m just super excited for this opportunity. I’m absolutely in love with this program,” he told The Roost.
