2011 Intro: Quincy Miller

North Carolina is undoubtedly attacking the underclassmen ranks now more than they have in the past. One in-state standout on their radar is sophomore Chicago native and now Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy product Quincy Miller.

According to Miller, the Tar Heels made a trip to see him play earlier in the year, and in October, Miller took a visit of his own to North Carolina to see the campus as well as stop by nearby rival Duke.

"I took an unofficial visit to UNC and Duke already," Miller said. "I played with the players and I got to talk to the coaches -- it was good."

"It was real nice," he continued. "Both of the colleges were nice and I really liked their environments and I loved their players."

While in Chapel Hill, Miller didn't get to spend any time with the Heels' head man, but he did get to know the players and begin building relationships with the North Carolina assistant coaches.

"Roy [Williams] was busy that day, but they took me through his office and showed me everything and I talked to all of their other coaches," Miller said. "They call my coach a lot."

Just a sophomore, Miller, who is averaging 15 points and 12 rebounds for Quality Education Academy, is a versatile combo forward that remains active and can score inside and out.

"I think I'm like a Kevin Durant," Miller said. "I can shoot from mid-range, but I can also step out. I can dribble and take it to the basket and play defense. I'm always active and that's what the coaches say they like about me."

As well as North Carolina, Miller has received early interest from USC, Memphis, Florida, USF, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Wake Forest, UCLA, Baylor, Connecticut, Georgetown, Auburn, Oklahoma State, DePaul, LSU and Purdue.

"My recruiting has been going good," Miller explained. "I've been keeping in touch with a bunch of college coaches."

"I'm just going to wait it out," he said. "I'm going to wait until my senior year. I don't want to make a decision too early."
