Carolina Challenge Update: Quincy Miller

Quincy Miller has all the tools to become one of the top players in the 2011 class. With his combination of inside and outside scoring ability, athleticism, and length, Miller is a tough match up for opponents. DeaconSports caught up with Miller last weekend at the Carolina Challenge to get his thoughts on recruiting.

There is no doubt that Quality Education's stand out forward Quincy Miller has a chance to be a special player in the 2011 class. The 6'8 forward was able to display his skills at the Carolina Challenge last weekend.

The first thing you notice with Miller is how smooth and effortless things look for him. He glides around the floor and has a very good handle and outside shot for a 6'8 forward. On more than one occasion, Miller snared a rebound, then led the break for his team and looked comfortable doing it. According to Miller, there is a good reason for this. "I grew up playing guard", said Miller. "In 8th grade I was 5'10. My freshman year I grew to 6'2 and by my 10th grade year I was almost 6'9."

Miller sees himself as a Kevin Durant type of player who can play both inside and on the perimeter. "I'm want to be an inside/outside type of player. I can dribble the ball, shoot it, and do pretty much anything on the court."

Although he is just a sophomore, Miller is already getting a ton of Division I attention. "I am hearing from Wake, USC, Memphis, North Carolina, Duke, Florida State, South Florida, Auburn and a lot of others." When asked which of those schools he has developed the best relationship with at this point, Miller responded, "Wake. Wake and Carolina. I went to three Wake games last season. I loved the atmosphere there. The fans were crazy and I really like the way coach let's the team play and get up and down the court."

Miller made it clear he does not plan on making a decision soon and wants to make sure he finds the right fit before he does so.
