Ross-Miller Takes in LSU

With the LSU men's basketball struggling, head coach Trent Johnson has his eyes on the recruiting trail. This past weekend, the Tigers took a step closer to landing Dallas point guard K.C. Ross-Miller.

With Tennessee and Kentucky in town this past weekend, LSU head coach Trent Johnson invited God’s Academy’s K.C. Ross-Miller and his father to spend a few days on the LSU campus.

Headed back to Dallas on Sunday afternoon, Ross-Miller said that the visit put LSU in the driver’s seat for his services.

“I enjoyed everything about it,” he said. “I had a good time at both games, and I felt like they could have pulled the Tennessee one out. It was a good environment, though. Everyone was really into both games.”

While the Tigers came out on the losing end of both conference contests, Ross-Miller said that he found what he traveled to Baton Rouge in search of.

“I kept my eyes on the guard play, because I want to choose a school where I can come in and play as a freshman,” he said. “I want to make an impact right away, and at LSU I feel like I would have that chance.”

When Ross-Miller sat down with Johnson and the Tiger staff to discuss his opportunities with LSU, the 6-foot, 170-pound point guard said that the message was drilled in once more.

“They need someone at the guard spot who can come in right away and make plays,” he said. “We looked at the potential that they have coming in and what they have on campus now, and I definitely felt like I could fit.”

Fitting in not just on the court, but also off of it, was also paramount for Ross-Miller during the visit. Once more, the Tigers checked out.

“I am friends with guys like Malcolm White and Eddie Ludwig because I have played against them before,” he said. “After meeting the rest of the guys, everyone seemed really cool. I really liked coach J, as well. He knows a lot about the game, and he told me that he could teach me what I needed to know to get my game to the next level.”

Once committed to Billy Gillespie at Kentucky, the recent trip to Baton Rouge has the senior prospect ready to make a different decision.

“I am going to get back and talk things over with everyone, then I will find a date and commit soon,” Ross-Miller said. “I really enjoyed my visit, and LSU is in a great spot.”

As a senior, Ross-Miller has averaged 29 points and 10 assists to help lead God’s Academy to a 14-3 start. He has also earned offers from Baylor, Nevada, Oklahoma State and South Florida, among others.
