Miller Switches To Other In-State Program

It didn't take Daniel Miller long to make his decision. After receiving his release from Georgia on Tuesday he made his decision a day later.

In Georgia you are either a Georgia fan or a Georgia Tech fan. On Wednesday, Daniel Miller went from one side to the other.

Miller asked for and picked up a release from his Letter-of-Intent on Tuesday, just a day later the 6-foot-10, 235-pound center signed with Paul Hewitt and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

"We asked for the release from the University of Georgia in large part due to the coaching change and we just felt that it was in Daniel's best interest to choose other avenues," Miller's father Preston Townes told

During his recruitment the first time around, Miller had narrowed his list of schools to Georgia, Stanford and Georgia Tech. With Georgia no longer an option, Miller went with the other in-state program.

"It was very logically for him to turn to [Georgia] Tech as his next choice, and they had a scholarship and were very enthusiastic about the opportunity of him going to play there," Townes said.

Miller is now the sixth member of Georgia Tech's 2009 recruiting class. He joins's No. 1 prospect Derrick Favors, as well as Glen Rice, Mfon Udofia, Kammeon Holsey and Brian Oliver.

Miller is rated as a three-star prospect and the 28th best center in the 2009 class.
