After creating a brand new laravel project you have already the User model and UserController in your project directory. If not then add

Create Model
Models/User.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;

class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use HasFactory, Notifiable;

    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password',
    ];

    /**
     * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $hidden = [
        'password', 'remember_token',
    ];

    /**
     * The attributes that should be cast to native types.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $casts = [
        'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',
    ];
}

use App\Models\User;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class UserController extends Controller
{

    public function create(){
        return view('user.create_user');
    }
    public function store(Request $request){

//        dd($request);

        $validatedData = $request->validate([
            'name' => 'required',
            'password' => 'required|min:5',
            'email' => 'required|email|unique:users'
        ], [
            'name.required' => 'User Name is required',
            'password.required' => 'User Password is required'
        ]);

        $validatedData['password'] = bcrypt($validatedData['password']);
        $user = User::create($validatedData);

        return back()->with('success', 'User created successfully.');

    }
