Miller Favors Big East Program

Class of 2009 standout Dane Miller has a favorite. A certain Big East school has made him a priority and he's reciprocating the affection.

Henrietta (N.Y.) Rush-Henrietta junior forward Dane Miller is thinking recruiting. After getting healthy, he's addressing his recruiting situation.

So far, one Big East program has the upper hand. "Providence is close too but Rutgers has a good lead with Providence closest," Miller told

Miller has been on Rutgers' campus twice. "The hardest I know is Rutgers with Coach Hill and Coach Carr. They're talking to my AAU coach and my high school coach."

Miller is putting up solid numbers, accounting for 20 points a game. A sprained MCL in January took him out of action for two weeks. "I've been getting stronger and my jump shot's been getting better from mid-range and three. Before I leaned back a lot but I've been in the gym working on it."

Cincinnati and St. John's, according to Miller, are serious in their pursuit. "Some colleges have seen me practice and some have been to some games."

The 6-foot-6 Miller is receiving attention for his efforts at the wing spots. "I've been mostly hearing (from schools) about the 2 and the 3; they like the way I pass the ball and block and they I'm real versatile."
