    This is the recruit that I’ll always remember as the one that quieted any concerns I had about the Meyer to Day transition.

    He was solid and it spoke volumes. Still does.

    Ohio State 2019 Class Report — OL Harry Miller


    Harry Miller arrived at Ohio State as a 5-star prospect in the 2019 class. Out of Buford High School in Buford, Georgia, Miller was ranked the No. 2 center in the nation and the No. 30 player overall. He signed with OSU over offers from Clemson, Georgia, Auburn, Michigan, LSU, Stanford, and many more.

    2019 Season

    Even before the season began, the legend of Harry Miller began.

    Offensive line coach Greg Studrawa and teammates like starting center Josh Myers could not have been more positive about Miller’s play and potential.

    It wasn’t long after his arrival that he was already working with the twos in fall camp, and that’s without enrolling early.

    “I just think he’s so far ahead mentally,” Studrawa said back in early August. “That’s the biggest thing for those young kids and especially the center. Harry being a center and Harry being Harry, he just learns. ‘Coach, tell me some more. Feed me some more.’ Like I said, we did all those iPad sessions, we did Facetiming, because he knew he was coming in to center. And so he’s so far ahead mentally. He’s out there making the checks today in a blitz pickup period and I don’t think I’ve ever had a freshman do that. Ever.”

    Studrawa went into the season hoping that Miller would be able to win the backup job and they wouldn’t have to rely on a guard to move over if they were ever called upon. He got his wish. Miller ended up playing in 13 games for the Buckeyes this past season, earning a relatively large number of snaps at center in a few of OSU’s blowouts.

    So Now What for Harry Miller

    What Miller was able to do even before he ever played in a game last season impressed everyone, even his competition.

    “Oh yeah. Absolutely. He’s so smart. He’s so smart,” Myers said. “I’ve never seen it. I’ve never seen a young guy pick up on the offense as fast as he has, especially as a center. Like it’s the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen. I’m not even playing. It’s really impressive.”

    What was it that impressed Myers so much?

    “There’s just complicated calls and complicated schemes that we have that a true freshman who just got here should have no business knowing and making the calls,” he said. “And he’s doing it and it’s like, dang, all right.”

    And that was in August.

    After a full season of some playing, but constant watching and constant learning, Miller is going to have every opportunity to win a starting spot on the offensive line this coming season.

    While he is certainly Ohio State’s center of the future, the Buckeyes will play their five best offensive linemen and put them where they fit best. That means he could be at guard this season replacing the departed Jonah Jackson.

    Or perhaps he is ready to take over at center now and move Myers over. That would be a bit of a surprise, but we have already been conditioned to expect the unexpected from Miller.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Miller takes over center and Myers move to LG where Jackson just departed. Could go the other way around, but it sounds like Miller might be one of the best 5 OL we have next year.

    Don’t think they’d disrupt chemistry like that, and Myers isn’t losing the starting center spot.

    Seniority matters.

    Would pencil in Miller at G and expect he’ll wait his turn after Myers leaves with a Remington trophy in hand.

    OL guys often take a while to fully develop. The ceiling for Miller and NPF are very high thus their lofty rankings. We know how good the 3 returning guys are. If Miller and NPF can get over the hump this O Line won’t miss a beat. Personally I think Miller goes to LG for this next year but maybe not. If he does Miller will have a harder time replicating Jackson’s production than NPF will to replicate Bowen’s but both guys saw some decent amount of action last year.

    My prediction is the OLine will be the strongest position group.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    Miller will be starting in Fall Camp, no question, barring in..... not saying it.

    I was one that was pretty critical of Jonah Jackson some last year, especially in pass protection. He was a great run blocker though and I'm confident Miller will match that. The hope is that he is also an excellent pass blocker. If that becomes reality, the Buckeyes have the best Oline in CFB and the Offense will be a juggernaut.

    Could be. I was more so thinking Miller is one of our best 5 and will start. And that Miller is a natural at center. Don't really care how it sorts out but I do think Miller starts next year based on the reports.

    Harry Miller makes guard transition look easy
    Harry Miller was recruited as the country’s top center prospect. But rather than sit behind future All-American center Josh Myers for another season, Miller can make the transition to guard — and he’ll make that look easy. Miller will be taking over for Jonah Jackson, but that won’t be an issue. After making a brilliant first impression last season, Miller will find a spot along the offensive line early in the spring, solidify his spot and stay there for a run at the Joe Moore Award for the nation’s best overall unit. The former five-star may never want to switch to center if he can play guard at that high of a level.

    There will be no rush to settle the competition for the vacant starting job at left guard, and Ohio State has several viable options. But Harry Miller is clearly going to be the odds-on favorite to emerge in that role, and the former five-star recruit probably is probably going to be tough to beat out given his maturity both physically and mentally. Miller is the center of the future. Until that time arrives after Josh Myers leaves, though, Miller is going to have a chance to grow and maul defenders at guard — like Pat Elflein and Billy Price famously did a couple years ago.

    Last spring, Miller was successfully wrapping up his campaign to become Buford High School’s valedictorian. This spring, he was supposed to wrap up his campaign to replace Jonah Jackson as Ohio State’s starting left guard. Through no fault of his own, Miller couldn’t make it happen.

    Spring practices ended due to concerns about the coronavirus before he could even fully make his case to start.

    The odds are in favor of the second-year Georgia native lining up between Thayer Munford and Josh Myers when the season opens in September. But he’ll have until August, at the earliest, to secure a starting spot. Matthew Jones and Gavin Cupp will try to wrestle it from him.
