Miller Shows Improvement

Ian Miller has a handful of schools showing interest and we expect that to pick up during the spring when he plays with the United Celtics.

We liked what we saw from Ian Miller in October at the Pangos All-South camp, but since then Miller has taken his game to another level. Clearly growing as a player, Miller is proving himself as a scorer and ball handler.

"I think I've improved a lot [since October]," Miller, a product of Charlotte (N.C.) South Mecklenburg, said. "I can go stronger to the basket and I think I've gotten better shooting."

At the Carolina Challenge, Miller, a member of the 2010 class, averaged 15 points during three games. The 6-foot-1 guard shot the ball very well and knocked down jumpers off the catch and the bounce.

"My first game I was kind of rusty and trying to feel out how my teammates play," he said. "Then the second game I picked it up."

After watching Miller at the Challenge, it's no surprise that he's already heard from a host of schools including, Florida State, Boston College, Clemson, Georgia, Richmond and Hampton. He's even taken an unofficial visit.

"I took a visit to Clemson," Miller said. "It was real good. I like their atmosphere and their campus is good. I like their style of play and they run and are athletic."

Miller, who will play with the United Celtics this spring and summer, said it's still early in the recruiting process. "This is just the start for me. Last year I was just a no name, but now I'm starting to pick it up.

If Miller's play at the Challenge was any indication, he's certainly right.
