Millard: "I Can't Wait"

Chad Millard is looking forward to this week and not just because he'll get a chance to play in the Tournament of Champions, but because he'll get an opportunity to see one of his three favorites – up close.

The 6-8, 210-pound Trinity (N.H.) rising senior forward will take an unofficial visit, along with his parents and coaches from Blessed IJN, to N.C. State all day on Thursday. He'll arrive in the morning.

"I can't wait," said Millard, who also lists Louisville and Providence as schools right with the Wolfpack.

Millard said that all three schools are fairly even at this point, especially without having seen both N.C. State and Louisville yet.

``It's real close between the three at this point. It's not fair if I put one of top right now. I'm going to try and see Louisville this summer," Millard added. "I'll be living in Indiana and it's only a 3 ½-hour drive to Louisville."

Millard is also considering Missouri, but with all the recent troubles Quin Snyder and his staff have gone through, it's unlikely that Millard will end up at Mizzou.

For now, Millard is playing in quite a few tournaments and trying to gain weight in-between. More of a role player in high school, he's embraced the opportunity to be a go-to guy in the spring and has taken advantage of it – becoming much more aggressive on both ends of the court and continuing to showcase a deadly perimeter game.

"I really like the style that N.C. State plays," Millard said. "I've heard they have real nice facilities, and I like what Julius Hodge does. Hopefully, they'll let me do some of the same things that he does."
