Miller is wide-open

Despite the fact that Darius Miller has taken quite a few unofficial visits, he isn't close to making a decision about his future. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound small forward from Mason County High School in Maysville, Ky., has a lot of options to consider and has decided to take his time with the process. Rivals.com has the latest update on Miller, the No. 37 ranked player in the class of 2008.
"Darius is wide-open at this time and is not going to commit early," said Mason County head coach Chris O'Hearn. "Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Florida, Kansas State, Kansas, Illinois and Indiana are some of the schools that he is interested in right now.
"Darius has unofficially visited Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana and Notre Dame," he added. "He had a good time on each of the visits, but he isn't ready to make a decision just yet."
Don't be surprised if Miller, a four-star prospect, is called upon to be "the man" this year for Mason County. He has the ability to be a difference maker on both ends of the court. However, because he is surrounded by other talented players, Miller will likely take on a number of different roles this year.
According to O'Hearn, his star player will do a number of things to help Mason County on the court this year.
"Darius has a good supporting cast, so he doesn't have to do everything," he said. "He can handle the ball, pass and shoot. Darius is very skilled and very long. On the defensive side of the ball, we hope that he can erase everybody's mistakes.
"On offense, we'll have Darius play in the post and on the perimeter," he added. "We hope that he will be able to block some shots for us as well."
Darius Miller Scouting Report: "A well built small forward, Miller is a definite inside/outside threat. He can score in the post and is a strong rebounder and shot blocker. On the perimeter, he passes well, but needs to extend his shooting range and improve as a lateral defender." - Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com
