2008 four-star prospect Darius Miller impressed Rivals.com with his play this summer, especially at the Reebok ABCD Camp. Apparently, the 6-foot-6, 215-pound small forward from Mason County (Ky.) High School impressed a lot of coaches as well.
Miller, the No. 37 ranked prospect in the class of 2008, has interest in a total of nine schools that have offered him, including Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kansas State, Miami and Xavier.
Although he is far from narrowing his schools down to a firm list, he does have Illinois, Tennessee, Louisville and Kentucky at the top of his list along with Kansas and Florida who have yet to offer.
Having already visited Xavier, Cincinnati and Louisville, Miller spent some time on Tennessee's campus last weekend.
"I went to the Tennessee, California football game, and it was really nice," said Miller. "I also spent time talking to Coach Pearl, watched an individual instruction session and got to meet the players at that. I was impressed at how hard they worked."
Although he is a little uncertain about what schools will be coming to his school in September since coaches are communicating through his dad, Miller noted that to the best of his knowledge Illinois, Kansas State, Indiana, Tennessee, Louisville and Kentucky will make their way to Mason County High School.
Establishing a strong relationship with Miller will be paramount for the coaches pursuing him.
"The most important thing for me choosing a school will be the relationship I develop with the coach during my visits," he said. "I also want to see what the individual workouts are like, and I'd like to play in a fast paced, motion offense style of play."
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.
