Five-Star 2011 PF plans Louisville visit

Five-Star 2011 power forward Quincy Miller already has offers from several of college basketball's top programs. Scout.com's third-ranked power forward has already made visits to three ACC schools and he's planning to checkout Louisville and Kentucky in the near future.

Quincy Miller, a 6-8, 185-pound forward from Winston-Salem (NC) Quality Education Academy, has a long list of schools. Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Memphis, Wake Forest, Louisville, Texas, Tennessee and Michigan State all are on the list.

Miller, a versatile talent who can play inside and out, says he'll get serious about his recruitment during his junior season.


Quincy Miller plans to check out
Louisville this summer.

"I've been on a couple visits but I'm not trying to make a decision too soon," Miller said.

Miller, the No. 3-ranked power forward in the Class of 2011, has already made unofficial visits to three in-state ACC power-houses - North Carolina, Duke and Wake Forest. He likes all three of those programs. "All three are good schools," Miller said.

One of the top underclassmen at the King City Classic, Nike's invitation-only summer camp in Cleveland, Miller showed college coaches on hand that he can do a lot of things on the court, from grabbing boards to knocking down outside shots.

"I'm trying to show I can play multiple positions," said Miller, a Chicago-native. "I think I showed them I can play inside, draw fouls because I'm longer than everybody and I showed them I can make easy shots too."

Word is that Louisville has a strong connection to Miller. Rick Pitino watched Miller play at the King City Classic on Wednesday and the UofL coach recently talked with the talented forward about playing for the Cardinals.

"I like Louisville," Miller said. "I like Rick Pitino as a coach and I like the way they play. I've talked with Coach Pitino a couple of times on the phone. I talked to him last week."

What did Pitino tell Miller, other than he'll be watching his progress during the evaluation period this month?

"He was just telling me how I would fit in with their program and their system," Miller said. "He also was telling me about their facilities and stuff like that. They've got big guys that can step out and go inside and that's the type of player I am."

Miller definitely has strong interest in the Cards and plans to make a visit to Louisville to check out what Pitino's program has to offer soon. "I'm going to visit (Louisville) sometime later this summer," Miller said.

Miller also is interested in Kentucky and said he'll visit the Wildcats while he's in the Bluegrass to check out Louisville.

"I like Coach Cal and the way they play. They've got an open offense and I can see myself playing with them too," said Miller.
