Miller pledges to Boston College

2015 power forward Jeremy Miller made his college commitment on Thursday. Miller committed to Steve Danahue and Boston College.

Boston College prioritized New Hampton (N.H.) Prep power forward Jeremy Miller and that paid off on Thursday.

According to New Hampton coach Pete Hutchins, Steve Donahue and his staff watched Miller, a 6-foot-9 power forward, multiple times, offered him a scholarship and see him as a good fit for their program.

"I think that was the one school that has been able to evaluate him consistently and frequently and I think that gave them the upper hand in figuring out who Jeremy is and they felt comfortable with him," Hutchins told Scout.com.

Clemson, Florida, VCU, George Washington and Temple all dabbled with Miller at times, but Boston College was consistent with their effort.

Hutchins also cited proximity to home as one of the factors for Miller choosing Boston College.

"Opportunity to play in front of family," he responded when asked why he chose Boston College.

"He felt comfortable with the coaching staff," Hutchins added. "He has an opportunity to develop under some great coaches and lastly opportunity to hopefully help change their program around."

Miller is averaging nine points and six rebounds during his junior year at New Hampton.
