Ryan Miller came to IU a year ago with a lot of promise. But he’ll never see the field for the Hoosiers.
The redshirt freshman tight announced over the weekend he’s stepping away from the game after suffering a series of injuries including two hip surgeries.
Miller posted the following announcement on his Twitter page:
As a freshman, Miller redshirted the 2022 season. He missed the entire season due to injury after arriving in January and participating in spring practice.
A tight end at Kenston High School (Cleveland, Ohio), Miller was ranked the No. 23 tight end nationally by ESPN and rated a top-20 prospect in Ohio by Rivals and 247Sports. The IU staff was high on Miller’s length, athleticism and versatility coming out of school.
Miller also missed most of his senior season with an injury.
Indiana has seen major turnover at tight end over the last year. 2022 starter A.J. Barner transferred to Michigan, and the Hoosiers placed James Bomba, Ryan Barnes and Trey Walker on scholarship in the last year. Barnes has graduated, while Bomba and Walker are with the program in 2023.
Also back in 2023 are Aaron Steinfeldt, and Miller’s 2021 classmate, Brody Foley.
Arriving in Bloomington in 2023 are three new tight ends — Bradley Archer, a transfer from Stanford, and two freshmen — Sam West from Greensburg, Ind., and Anthony Miller from Duluth, Ga.
