Miller was first recruited by Cornell's former coaching staff with the current staff continuing his courtship throughout the summer and fall.
As a high school junior at St. Ignatius, Miller averaged 13.8 points and 8.3 rebounds while shooting 63% from the field, 30% from beyond the arc and 86% from the charity stripe. He was named a 2009-2010 Associated Press Northeast Lakes All-District Second Team selection and Honorable Mention All-State Division I.
Despite incurring a fractured pelvis during the winter which limited his AAU exposure with his AAU team, the King James Shooting Stars, Miller's summer performances landed him numerous Division I offers including from Miami (OH), Toledo, Bucknell, Northeastern, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Columbia, Cleveland State, Akron, James Madison, and Lousiana-Lafayette, among others. Miller, who attended Cornell's Elite Camp, committed after visiting campus this weekend. He cancelled scheduled visits to Bucknell, Northeastern, and Miami. Miller previously visited Toledo. Other schools still in the mix and recruiting Miller were Miami (Fl and Notre Dame among other high level BCS programs.
Rick Bolus High Potential Basketball Recruiting Service ranks Miller among the top 75 players in Ohio while HoopScoop ranks him No. 334 in the nation (17th in Ohio).
Brian Snow of Rivals.com evaluated Miller during January 2010 and noted, "Miller is a big wing who has a lot of talent. An excellent athlete, Miller can hit threes as well as finish down low. The release on his shot is low, but it is effective as when he got his feet set the ball went down. Miller ended up finishing with a team high 15 points, and also added several rebounds. The next step for him will be finishing through contact better." Snow reevaluated Miller during July and noted, "The word coming out of Chicago was Miller turned the corner, and he showed again his improved play. Pushing 6-foot-6 with a great frame and big time athleticism, Miller has the physical ability to be a major contributor. On Monday he was hitting shots from the outside, finishing through contact, and also had a big dunk in transition. That aggressiveness needs to be there consistently, but he looked like a much improved player from the spring with his play."
Miller has a 3.4 GPA and scored a 1540 on the SAT. He is leaning toward majoring in business finance and is expected to enroll in Cornell's Dyson School of Business.
