But Miller emerged as that second receiver during OU’s 41-30 win over Kansas State on Halloween night, when he caught nine passes for 94 yards and his lone touchdown of the season.

Not long after, rangy true freshman Jaz Reynolds followed suit, coming up with a pair of big first-down catches in the Sun Bowl.

Toss in veteran Brandon Caleb, who is now healthy after battling a nagging sprained ankle most of last season, and OU’s receiving unit suddenly looks solid, if not more than that, going into next season.

"A stable corps of receivers, that is definitely better,” Miller said. "If you have to interchange and swap guys around, that messes up the chemistry between the quarterback, which leads to dropped passes, interceptions and turnovers.

"But if you have a stable group of receivers that are veterans and know how to play, then that is going to be fewer mistakes and fewer turnovers and make the offense a lot better.”
