North Caddo’s Omarion Miller, four-star wide receiver, commits to Nebraska football
Shreveport Times 2022 Male Athlete of the Year Omarion Miller has committed to Nebraska to play football.
Formerly an LSU verbal commitment, Miller decommitted from the Tigers in late May and recently visited Nebraska.
“GBR Nation I’m home,” Miller Tweeted Tuesday afternoon with a picture of a cornhusk beside it. “@daboot02 @coach_frost @HuskerFBNation.”
A four-star rated athlete, Miller is the No. 8 overall rated player in Louisiana and the No. 14 wide receiver in the country. He also has offers from Miami, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Louisiana Tech.
The 6-foot-2, 196-pound Miller caught 76 passes for 1,502 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2021 for Titans coach John Kavanaugh.
He appears to be part of a growing number of top Louisiana football athletes heading out of state to continue their careers. Eight of the state’s top 10 recruits for 2023, including No. 1 Arch Manning (Texas), seem to be spurning LSU.

“O is special due to the obstacles he’s overcome, while remaining focused on his goals and staying completely out of trouble,” Kavanaugh said. “He has grown into a leader as he matured. He followed the example of guys who came before him like Jarmoin Griffin and Trey Heard.”
Miller was also hard to stop on the basketball court where he led the Titans to the District 1-2A title. He averaged 26 points, five rebounds, four assists and two blocks per game to earn Times All-City first team honors.
With a GPA in the 3.2 range and involvement in three sports at North Caddo, Miller doesn’t have much time for extracurriculars.
