Dequon Miller, a sophomore point guard from Motlow State, committed to Missouri State this week. The Tullahoma (TN.) native talked with Bear Boulevard about his commitment.

Missouri State added a commitment from JUCO point guard Dequon Miller. Miller, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound sophomore averaged 21 points seven assists and three rebounds per game for MSCC this season. Miller also shot 44-percent from three and 84-percent from the free-throw line.

Dequon Miller jumped on board with Missouri State this week. A big reason for Miller’s commitment was Head Coach Paul Lusk.

“Coach Lusk (was the reason I committed). I think he’s a great coach. I’m going to fit in well at his program as far as playing style. I’m going to be able to play my game and win ball games with the squad,” said Miller.

Miller also loves the support that the Missouri State program receives.

“I like the fan base (at Missouri State). They make me feel welcomed. I’m glad to be a part of MSU,” he said.

A handful of programs were interested in Miller before he chose to make the call for Missouri State.

Marquette, West Virginia Eastern Michigan, Louisiana Lafayette and Missouri just to name a few, were interested,” said Miller.

So what kind of player is Missouri State’s newest lead guard?

“My shooting ability is my strength. And I get my teammates involved as well as I score,” Miller said.
