Permian’s Brother Miller announced Sunday that he has committed to play football at Abilene Christian University.

Miller issued the statement on Twitter announcing his decision.

“First Giving ALL glory & honor to God who is the head of my life,” Miller tweeted. “I want to take the time now to thank all the coaches/programs that showed interest and gave me the opportunity to play this sport that I love at the next level. Also to thank my high school coaches, the program, and the school as a whole. Making and shaping me to the player I am today. My family & friends for all their support. Without further ado, I want to say that it’s been a long process. With much prayer and talking to my family, I’ve decided to further my education and football career at… Abilene Christian University!”

On Monday, Miller expounded on his reasons for selecting ACU.

“When I got there, I liked the coaching staff. They’re great people and good guys. I liked the campus. I feel like it’s a good fit going to a Christian-type school. Growing up in church, I felt like it was a good fit.”

Miller said Abilene’s proximity to Odessa was another factor.

“It’s not too far from home,” he said. “It’s just right up the street, not too much for my grandparents. I really wanted to stay close to home, so that’s also a plus.

National Signing Day for football letters of intent is Feb. 7. While verbal commitments are nonbinding, Miller said he was glad to get that part of recruiting out of the way.

“It was a big stress, but also a good stress at the same time,” Miller said of the recruiting process. “The fact that I could finally get it over with and find me a new home for next year, and focus on finishing basketball season strong and making a run in the playoffs, just getting better each and every day,” Miller added.

As a senior, Miller rushed for 267 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries, while catching a team-high 19 passes for 387 yards and six TDs in Permian’s run-based Wing-T scheme. He also returned 13 kickoffs for 278 yards, averaging 21.4 yards per return, with a long of 73 yards.

In four varsity seasons, Miller saw action at multiple positions on offense, taking snaps at wide receiver, slotback and quarterback in addition to returning kickoffs and punts. He finished his high school career with 2,462 all-purpose yards and 27 touchdowns rushing, receiving, passing and returning.

His workload will be a little lighter at ACU.

“I’ll be playing receiver,” Miller said. “That’s what I’ve been playing and enjoy playing. I’m glad I get to do that.”
