Four-Star Recruit Robert Miller Nears Commitment to Texas Longhorns
When it comes to up-and-coming basketball talent, Robert Miller III is a name that cannot be ignored. This 6-foot-9, 225-pound power forward out of Pasadena Memorial High School in Houston, Texas, is making waves as a consensus top-100 overall recruit. Currently ranked as the fifth-best recruit in the Lone Star State, Miller has a storied athletic lineage that sets the stage for a promising future. And that future seems to lie with the Texas Longhorns.
Good Genes Heading to Texas
Born into a family of sports superstars, Miller boasts an impressive athletic pedigree. His father, Rob Miller II, was a standout football player at Louisiana State University. Meanwhile, his mother made her mark on the hardwood, playing basketball at Tulane before turning pro in the WNBA.
Now, it seems that the younger Miller is on the cusp of continuing this legacy. The Texas Longhorns’ college basketball program is eagerly awaiting his commitment in the coming months.
In recent conversations, Miller shared his thoughts on the Longhorns:
“They’re just talking about how they really want me to be a part of the Texas basketball team, saying it’s a really good fit, and just keeping it real with me.” And that’s a really big thing for Miller, who once said the biggest thing he’s looking for are open and transparent coaches.
Miller has seen firsthand the camaraderie and success that permeate the Longhorns’ program.

“They are getting me involved in pretty much everything. They are showing me the ropes and showing me how everything is. I saw what the family feel is like down there. They are playing together, and they are really successful. The new arena is pretty nice,” he added.
Miller and 5-Star Holland to Team Up
Texas has been relentless in their pursuit of Miller, a testament to how highly they value his talent. The young athlete has acknowledged that the Longhorns have been recruiting him the hardest. And it’s no wonder – the potential addition of Miller to the roster could elevate the team to new heights.
Another influential factor in Miller’s decision may be the opportunity to play alongside five-star prospect Ron Holland. The Texas native has already committed to the Longhorns, and is a major factor in Miller’s recruiting. The duo visited the campus together for the Kansas game at the beginning of March. That trip that seems to have convinced Miller that Texas is where his future lies.
Miller’s potential on the court is undeniable. A versatile player with a high ceiling, he has the skills and athleticism to become a force to be reckoned with in college basketball. His combination of size, strength, and agility make him a valuable asset to any team, and the Longhorns are no exception.
