    Already said this before, but I really believe Harry will have an instant impact here. I see him in the two-deep behind Myers to start fall camp and think he is going to push him for PT.

    HARRY MILLER, OFFENSIVE LINEMAN
    Ohio State went into the offseason extremely thin along its offensive line, but Day made a number of moves this winter to alleviate the pressure up front. That started by signing four linemen in the '19 class, but the big news came after signing day when the Buckeyes landed Rutgers transfer Jonah Jackson.

    The situation isn't as dire as it was a few short months ago, but Ohio State is still short on experienced linemen. That could open the door for Harry Miller, the 5-star center who was ranked the No. 30 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

    Miller played center in high school, but he could slide along any of the interior spots on the line. None of those starting spots would be up for grabs, but Miller should come in and compete for a backup spot at either guard or the center position.

    If the first-team unit can stay healthy, he'll likely only see time in mop-up duty.

    INSIDE FIVE-STAR VALEDICTORIAN HARRY MILLER'S PREPARATION FOR OHIO STATE

    [​IMG]

    By the time Harry Miller even learned Buford High School kept track of class rank, his accomplishments in the classroom already had him among the three top academic performers.

    The five-star center, who arrived on campus and moved into his dorm at Ohio State this weekend, learned he ranked third in his class after his first semester of high school when he received his report card in the mail. The following semester, he moved up to second in the class of 336 eventual graduates.

    “After that, I moved up to first, and I was like, 'Oh wow, maybe I could maintain this and that would be a cool thing,’” Miller told Eleven Warriors last week. “So I maintained it, and it was a cool thing.”

    Cool enough for him to become the valedictorian of his Georgia high school.

    Throughout elementary school and middle school, he took part in programs for gifted students, but he had no idea where he truly stood in comparison to his peers. When he learned that class rank was calculated early in high school, he took aim at a long-range goal.

    He was taught “if you want to do something, then do it.” So before beginning his sophomore year, he decided he wanted to become the top student in his class, and on May 24, he delivered a speech at graduation as valedictorian.

    “That was also one of the reasons I didn't want to early enroll,” Miller said. “Because I didn't know if that would affect any kind of rank or whatever. It was really fun to finish out. We had an amazing class of seniors. We had one guy get a perfect score on the ACT. One guy get one point shy of a perfect score on the SAT. Some really, really crazy smart people.”

    Miller completed nine Advanced Placement courses at Buford High School, which wiped away more than a few general education requirements he would have had to take at Ohio State.

    Thus, this summer, he’s starting out with an art history course before beginning a fairly daunting courseload for a freshman in the fall, when he plans to take calculus and physics.

    “I'm going to see if that is a workload that is recommended for a fall load during the football season, or if I could move that to the spring and take an easier load,” Miller said. “So I'll work that out.”

    That’s probably not recommended for players spending the fall semester on the football team. But Miller isn’t most students. His high school GPA, boosted by AP classes, crept closer to 5.0 than 4.0. He volunteers with his family on missionaries in Nicaragua. He plans to major in “some form of engineering” at Ohio State before pursuing a Master of Business Administration, the same graduate degree he saw Billy Price earn before leaving for the NFL.

    Oh, and he’s a pretty good football player – someone who offensive line coach Greg Studrawa thinks has a chance to play even as a true freshman for the Buckeyes.

    “I have a gut feeling that he can,” Studrawa said this spring.

    Though Miller couldn’t enroll early at Ohio State in order to maintain his status as a contender for valedictorian, he began ramping up preparation for his collegiate career in late February, two months after signing his National Letter of Intent.

    He didn’t want to waste any time.

    “It's just kind of been getting into it, doing as much as you can off-site so that when I get on campus, I'm aware of zone plays, I'm aware of gap plays, I'm aware of all these things so I have a firm foundation that I can build the offense on,” Miller said.

    About two weeks before spring practice kicked off on March 7, he got an account set up so he could view Ohio State's film. He started watching film from past seasons in order to learn the verbiage that will eventually become second nature. And along with that came the hand signals.

    As often as four or five times per week, Miller was inside the meetings at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center – from his house about 600 miles away. Whenever the Buckeyes held their position meetings in the morning, he called in. Those he could attend began around 7:30 a.m., and he’d stay on FaceTime for about 40 minutes, leaving just enough time for him to make it to school by 8:30 a.m.

    During those meetings, he filled up eight pages in a notebook with information.

    “It's been a good semester of building some notes,” Miller said.
