Michigan Standout Commits to the Chippewas

The Central Michigan University men's basketball program scored a big verbal commitment last night from one of the top players in the state of Michigan's 2009 class.

Chippewas Insider has learned that wing forward K'allante Miller of Oak Park (Mich.) High School verbally committed to Central Michigan University Tuesday night.

A 6-foot-5, 190-pounder, Miller averaged 20 points, seven rebounds and four steals per game last season for Oak Park. A consensus top 10 player in the state's 2009 class, Miller is rated the No. 1 wing player in Michigan by high school scouting analyst Steve Bell of Bankhoops.com.

Miller chose CMU over reported offers from DePaul, St. Bonaventure, Western Michigan, the University of Detroit Mercy and Cleveland State, among other schools. He joins power forward Tyler Brown of Eau Claire (Wisc.) North High School in the Chippewas' 2009 recruiting class.

The Chippewas still could have one scholarship available for their 2009 recruiting class. Among the players CMU is heavily recruiting is junior college All-American DeAndre Nealy of Mott (Mich.) Community College.

CMU is recruiting Nealy, who is 6-foot-6, 240 pounds, to play center. He lists the Chippewas and DePaul among his favorites.
