A trip to Atlanta during a busy and eventful weekend was enough to seal the deal for Memphis point guard Maurice Miller. The four-star prospect verbally committed to Georgia Tech on Monday after officially visiting the ACC school over the weekend.
Miller was on campus last weekend as the Yellow Jackets hosted Notre Dame and welcomed a busy crowd and ESPN Gameday. Miller, the No. 90 ranked player in the class of 2007, joins Gani Lawal and Lance Storrs, both Atlanta natives, in Georgia Tech's recruiting class.
Miller is the eventual replacement for McDonald's All-American Javaris Crittenton, a former Rivals.com five-star prospect, down the road for the Jackets.
"They talked about how I'd play with Javaris and how I could come in here and play behind him for a year or two and then when he left on how I could step in and play right away," Miller said.
The four-star guard has been to Georgia Tech twice before but he said last weekend's trip helped him in the decision-making process.
"It was pretty much everything that I wanted to experience," Miller said. "I knew the campus was big but I never realized it was like a city within the city. That was different but pretty cool."
Getting a chance to see the game day events helped too, he said.
"We went down there, me, Lewis, Gani and saw everyone down at the ESPN Gameday set. Everyone was shaking our hands," Miller said.
Miller also considered Ole Miss.
