Right now Maurice Miller has a list of schools that look like this: UAB, Clemson, Ole Miss, Tennessee and the University of Illinois. "Right now it's really hard for me to narrow down my list of schools. I just started my junior year so this is kind of new to me, but I definitely like Illinois a lot," said Miller.
Like most high school athletes that the Illini recruit, they all have one thing in common and that's a great relationship with assistant coach Tracey Webster. "Coach Webster is great. I mean we have a great relationship; I feel like I can talk to him about most things."
Miller has been playing varsity basketball since he was a freshman and two years ago scouts knew this kid would be a player. "Last year I averaged 14.0 ppg and 8.0 assists and 5 rebounds per game as a sophomore."
Miller admits he likes to run and play a fast tempo brand of basketball. That's one of the things that attracted Miller to Illinois.
Miller is also from the same high school (Raleigh-Egypt in Memphis, TN) that produced former Illini Cory Bradford. Miller is 6'3" and weighs in at 185 pounds.
Miller has a 4.5 GPA on a 5.0 scale.
