You don’t have to look hard to see the Cowboys have had success bringing up players from lower levels via the transfer portal, and they’re after another.

Elon tight end Johncarlos Miller II announced an Oklahoma State offer on Tuesday. Miller caught 25 passes at the FCS level this past season for 453 yards and four touchdowns. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Listed at 6-foot-5, 242 pounds, Miller’s best game of the season came in Elon’s upset win against No. 5 Delaware on Nov. 4. Miller had five catches for 101 yards that day, including a 70-yard touchdown. Miller was held catchless in only one of the 10 games he played in this season, and that big-play ability seemed to be a constant, as he also had touchdown catches of 65 yards and 53 yards on the year.

From Greensboro, North Carolina, Miller joined Elon as an unranked recruit in the 2021 class, playing in four games as a freshman while maintaining a redshirt. He played in all 12 of Elon’s games in 2022, making 11 starts. That season he had 26 catches for 201 yards and three scores while also blocking two field goals on special teams.

Since hitting the portal, Miller has announced offers to West Virginia, UConn, Arkansas State, Texas Tech, Houston, Pitt and now Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys could have a solid recruiting pitch for Miller, as they had a ton of success with lower level guys in the last cycle. Leon Johnson III went from Division-III George Fox to catching 29 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown during a six-game stretch. The Cowboys also grabbed Justin Kirkland from the FCS level last offseason. Kirkland has been a rock (boulder) in the middle of OSU’s defense this season, playing 411 snaps, per PFF.

OSU will also have a hole to fill at tight end with UMass transfer Josiah Johnson exhausting his eligibility this season. OSU’s first true tight end in a long while, Johnson has played in all 13 of OSU’s games this season, catching 21 passes for 163 yards and a score.
