A member of the class of 2008, small forward Darius Miller can play for any college in America. His list of schools is growing, but among those suitors is Illinois and head coach Bruce Weber. "I really can't say I have a list, it's really big right now but Illinois is on it. I can't name a favorite at this point," according to Miller.
Miller, who stands 6-6 and weighs in at 185 pounds, plays high school basketball for Mason County in Maysville, KY, and is doing quite well this year. "My team is doing very good, were 4-0 and getting better. I'm averaging 21 points a game and 8 rebounds so far this year," Miller said.
"I have an offer from Illinois along with some other schools. It's been awhile since I've been there for a visit, it was a good visit, but it was a while ago. Location isn't a big deal to me and I don't really care what conference I play in," Miller said. Most of the work being done on Miller is coming from Coach Tracy Webster.
According to Miller school is going great; he's carrying a 3.5 GPA in the classroom so qualifying should not be an issue for him.
