Kenston tight end Ryan Miller is going to be an Indiana Hoosier.
That news can be attributed to the “Tom Allen Effect.”
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound rising senior at Kenston announced his verbal commitment to Coach Tom Allen’s Hoosiers on June 29, ending a recruiting battle among 15 schools that offered scholarships to the tall and athletic playmaker from Kenston.
The ascension of Allen’s program is a big reason why Miller his headed to Indiana.
“That has a lot to do with it, especially after last year,” Miller said. “All the big wins and even a close one against Ohio State. Coach Allen is an amazing coach and person. I can’t wait to play for him.”
Allen was named the Big Ten coach of the year and the AFCA national coach of the year last year after leading the Hoosiers to a 6-2 record and a berth in the Outback Bowl.
The previous year, the Hoosiers were 8-5 and played in the Gator Bowl.
“Indiana’s been in the lead for a while,” Miller said of his list of favorites. “I took a West Virginia visit last week and it made me think a little, but it came down to Indiana. When I went to Indiana for my official visit, it just felt like home there.”
Miller is ranked a three-star prospect by both 247sports and Rivals.com. He’s listed as the 19th-best prospect in Ohio for the Class of 2022 by Rivals and No. 26 in the state by 247.
