Scout.com's No. 2-ranked 2011 prospect visited Louisville in early September and raved about the trip in an interview with Scout.com's Evan Daniels.
"The Louisville trip was great," Miller said. "It was my best visit so far. [I liked] just getting to know to the people around there and getting to know coach [Rick] Pitino. Playing with the players and I was trying to see where I fit in. They were answering all the questions that needed to be answered."
Louisville appears the leader for the five-star power forward heading into his visit to Baylor next week. Though he's tentatively slated to check out Jeff Capel's Oklahoma program the following week, and be on Duke's campus for midnight madness Oct. 15, it's possible Miller could announce a decision after the trip to Baylor.
"We'll know a lot more more after Miller's visit to Baylor," Daniels said.
As for Miller's teammate, Deuce Bello, there are whispers that things have cooled between Louisville and the high-flying forward since his visit with the Cardinals earlier this month. Bello will visit Baylor next week, and is also reportedly considering St. John's.
Wroten visiting UofL
Tony Wroten, Scout.com's No. 27-rated prospect, is scheduled to make an official visit to Louisville this weekend. Pitino made an in-home visit with Wroten's family earlier this week in Seattle, and the Cardinals have definitely turned up the heat on the four-star prospect.
Wroten officially has narrowed his list to five programs – Louisville, Washington, Uconn, Kentucky and Villanova, but sources indicate it's a two-team race between the Cards and Huskies. Wroten plans to announce his decision at his school Oct. 7 and is expected to visit Washington before doing so. Other than his visit to Louisville, Wroten has no other trips scheduled.
Cards have work to do with Rodney Hood
Rick Pitino has a shot at uber-skilled 6'8, 190-pound guard/forward Rodney Hood. That's all Pitino could ask for after arriving late on the scene with Hood.
Harris an option?
While Louisville has identified Quincy Miller and Rodney Hood as priority 2011 recruits, Rick Pitino's staff has also been quietly laying the groundwork with 6'7 New York forward Tyler Harris.
Scout.com reported Thursday that Harris has scheduled a visit to Louisville Oct. 22, but doesn't have an offer currently from Pitino. The Louisville coaching staff paid Harris a visit last week.
Harris, the sibling of Tennessee's Tobias Harris, is also considering Iowa, Providence, N.C. State and St. John's. Harris is rated the No. 24 power forward prospect by Scout.com in the Class of 2011. He's a three-star recruit.
