Gary Patterson has had a knack for turning small-town players into big-time prospects, and Frog fans hope that history repeats itself in the form of Kendre Miller.
After commiting just Monday, Miller made things official on National Signing Day Wednesday.
At 6’0”, 208 pounds, Miller is listed as a three star athlete by 247 Sports. Playing primarily running back for Mount Enterprise High School in Mount Enterprise — a town of just 440 people — Kendre rushed for over 2800 yards and 34 touchdowns, dominating his competition and earning him offers from Southern Miss, Wyoming, and UTSA. But when the Horned Frogs came calling, he jumped at the chance to join a Power Five program. He told Jeremy Clark of Horned Frogs Blitz that “[he] chose TCU because of the people and the environment. It just felt like home.”
A standout athlete that could also play linebacker at the next level, Miller is one of two running backs in the class of 2020, joining Oklahoma’s Dominic Richardson. He is expecting to stay on offense, where he will be another young player to work alongside returners Daimarqua Foster and Darwin Barlow.
In addition to his outstanding athletic ability, folks will appreciate Miller as a high-character kid. His high school coach, Jeremy Jenkinds, said of him, “really what sets him apart is his character. I have never heard him say a negative thing about anyone. His work ethic is second to none.”
