NEW COMMIT: Broomfield, Colorado sprinter and current high school junior Luke Miller has announced his verbal commitment to NC State and will arrive in Raleigh in the fall of 2020.

Currently swimming unattached, Miller most recently competed at Juniors West where he finished ninth in the 200 free and achieved a trio of lifetime bests. The NISCA All-American was the runner-up in the 200m free at the Colorado LCM Senior Championships with a pair of additional top-5 finishes this past summer after earning the bronze in the 100m free at Mt. Hood Speedo Sectionals. Also competing for Legacy High School, Miller placed second in the 200 free and fourth in the 100 fly during his sophomore season at the Colorado 5A State Championships.

He told Swimming World:

“I am very excited to announce that I will be continuing my swimming and academic career at NC state. I can not thank my teammates, coaches, family and friends enough for all of the support! Go pack!”

His best times include:

  • 50 free – 20.96
  • 100 free – 44.54
  • 200 free – 1:36.22
  • 100 back – 50.69
  • 100 fly – 48.93
  • 200 fly – 1:48.92

Miller has made significant improvements over the past two seasons: he has dropped three seconds from his 50 free, eight from his 100 free, 13 from the 200 free, eight from the 100 back, seven from the 100 fly and 27 seconds off the 200 fly. Even with 1.5 years of club swimming still to go before suiting up for NC State, Miller would’ve scored in the C-final of the 200 free at the 2018 ACC Championships where the Wolfpack earned their fourth-straight conference title.
