LSU football is still hard at work building its 2022 recruiting class, but that doesn’t mean the Tigers are getting a late start on the 2023 class.

On Monday, LSU landed its first 2023 commit.

Four-star wide receiver Omarion Miller committed to the Tigers on Monday according to various reports (including this one from 247Sports).

Miller, 6-foot-2/190 lbs from Vivian, LA (North Caddo), is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 29 wide receiver in the country and the No. 10 player in Louisiana.

The talented 2023 recruit committed to LSU over offers from Arkansas, Miami, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and West Virginia, among others.

According to Miller’s offensive coordinator at North Caddo, the Tigers are getting an extremely competitive player.

“He has incredible consistency with a demeanor and level of competitiveness you do not see often,” said North Caddo offensive coordinator Reagan Smith to 247Sports. “He’s got a collection of skills that are broader than most kids his age. He has incredible speed, body control, short space ability, size; most kids have a couple of those traits, but he has them all.”

Smith also coached former LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr in high school.

And Smith believes that Miller has a higher ceiling than Marshall.

“He (Miller) has better short space ability than Terrace had,” said Smith. “That is what separates the two…Omarion’s ceiling is extremely high, even a little higher.”

Miller, who was offered by the Tigers on June 6, averaged an impressive 27.8 yards per catch as a sophomore.

It sounds like LSU’s case to be named “wide receiver U” just got a bit stronger.
