The wild world of recruiting never stops nor does it ever worry about little things like “the distant future.”
Case in point: your Fighting Tigers of LSU’s efforts on the recruiting class of 2023. LSU secured its first commit of next year’s class in the form of four-star receiver Omarion Miller, out of North Caddo High.

It’s of course super early in the process so there’s not a whole lot of recruiting data out there for Miller. But he’s currently listed as a four-star prospect and the No. 10 prospect in Louisiana which is once again loaded with talent (see Manning, Arch). He appears to be a big play waiting to happen, as he averaged 27 yards a reception as a sophomore.
Miller’s offensive coordinator Reagan Smith compares him to former Tiger Terrace Marshall, whom Smith coached at while Marshall was in high school.
“He’s got the size like Terrace had when he was a sophomore, but he has better short space ability than Terrace had,” he explained. “That is what separates the two. Terrace is going to get his in the NFL, and Omarion’s ceiling is extremely high, even a little higher.”
An even higher ceiling than a guy who caught 106 passes and scored 23 touchdowns while helping LSU win a national championship. I’ll take it.
