Michigan PG Jay McMiller adds name to available seniors

After a 4-inch growth spurt, talented 2016 Michigan point guard Jay McMiller is looking to see his recruitment expand.

While college coaches will hit the road this weekend watching potential 2017 and 2018 targets, there will be several schools still looking to fill roster spots for next season.

This time of the year there aren't a ton of available players but this weekend at the Pangos Premier Spring Warm-Up, an unsigned 2016 point guard emerged.

Jay McMiller, a 6-foot-4, 165-pound prospect from Horton (Mich.) Hanover-Horton, who is playing AAU with DreamVision, showed off an impressive combination of vision, ball handling, speed and ability to knock down shots.


"I pass well, I shoot well, I'm a born leader, I'm more facilitator than scorer as a point guard, I rebound well and play solid defense," McMiller said.

McMiller, who is from Long Beach (Calif.) but moved to the Midwest before his sophomore year, wasn't on anyone's radar last summer as a 6-foot point guard.

But before his senior season, a growth spurt changed everything for him.

"I was only 6-feet," McMiller said. "I just grew four inches and my game changed. I grew between the summer and school season. Everything changed for me."

McMiller is open currently holds offers from Cleveland State, Eastern Illinois and Wright State but is exploring going to prep school and reclassifying to 2017, depending on his options at the end of the spring and summer.
