2011 Intro: Quincy Miller

Quality Education Academy standout Quincy Miller is having a big sophomore campaign and is already scoring interest from colleges across the country.

Quincy Miller has a lofty goal.

"I want to be the top player [in my class]," he said. "I'm in the gym all the time working hard. I want to be the best."

"Every time I step on the floor I'm just going to go as hard as I can, and when I go to camps I'm just going to try and dominate," Miller continued.

Obviously just a sophomore, Miller still has a lot of time to continue to improve and prove himself as one of the top prospects in his class.

At 6-foot-7, possibly 6-foot-8, Miller is a versatile combo forward with a huge upside. Whether he's playing inside or out, Miller is effective. He's skilled, active and capable of scoring in a variety of ways.

"I think I'm like a Kevin Durant," Miller said. "I can shoot from mid-range, but I can also step out. I can dribble and take it to the basket and play defense. I'm always active and that's what the coaches say they like about me."

Miller is a relatively new name to the scene, at least on a national stage, but college coaches have certainly taken notice of his talent.

Among the schools already involved in his recruitment are USC, North Carolina, Memphis, Florida, USF, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Wake Forest, UCLA, Baylor, Connecticut, Georgetown, Auburn, Oklahoma State, DePaul, LSU and Purdue.

"Right now I'm not real worried about it," Miller said of his recruitment. "I'm just trying to get my team ready. I'm supposed to be a leader on my team, so I just wants us to be prepared for anything. In the summer is when I'm going to worry about recruiting."

Miller said he thinks Baylor, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech are on the verge of offering him his first scholarships. The Demon Deacons and Hokies recently sent their head coaches to see him.

"My recruiting has been going good," Miller explained. "I've been keeping in touch with a bunch of college coaches."

"I'm just going to wait it out," he said. "I'm going to wait until my senior year. I don't want to make a decision too early."

Miller has built his reputation among college coaches because of a solid sophomore season. He's averaging 15 points and 12 rebounds a game at Winston Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy.
