The six-foot-eight big man is entering his second season at New Hampton after reclassifying to 2014 upon his arrival last fall.
A powerful interior presence with good hands and feet to match his strong body, Miller made significant strides during his first season at New England, culminating with a double-double performance against Huntington Prep on national television. He followed that up with a solid showing on the summer grassroots circuit, continuing to run with KC Run GMC and accumulating more and more high-major suitors throughout the month of July.
Miller’s commitment will reunite him with AAU teammate Dominique Collier, a six-foot-one point guard who had already committed to Colorado earlier this year. The duo visited Colorado’s campus two weeks ago, before Miller visited Marquette officially last weekend.
Miller joins Mike Leblanc (Princeton) and Mike Auger (Penn) to become the third New Hampton product to commit in the class of 2014. Junior forward Tyler Lydon committed to Syracuse earlier this week, giving the Huskies of four players currently committed.
Below are some of the highlights from Miller’s first season at New Hampton, care of 2eZ Mixtapes:
