    Per HSN, this kid, who is 6'9" 180lbs, #65 on Rivals, is looking at Memphis, OSU, IU & Florida. Memphis has been a heavy lean, as his father played there; however, there is talk that his dad wants him to go elsewhere. Iu is is contact with him, but I don't see we've offered. He's a '21 kid.

    His dad played at Florida, but he did play for the Grizzlies and is an assistant at Memphis now.

    don't like our present chances if we're competing with a) daddy's alma mater , and b) daddy's current employer.

    I'm assuming that shooting runs in family. Mike Miller could really shoot lights out.

    Not banging....Sure he can hoop. He is a top 70 kid.
    But wow 6'9 180lb...That's rail thin..
    Big Ten is probably the most physical conference in the country....
    Idk ..Maybe he's a stretch 4..Lot of factors going against us..

    His dad is looking to bounce soon from Memphis. Im from Memphis happen to be in the city right when they shut the sports world down. Talk is Mike is looking for a HC job. Mike is a solid recruiter and great with the kids in training. His son will be a solid player. Trying to get his skills to catch up with a 6"9 frame. Once it all comes together. Kid could be really good. Right now he is a 16 year old 6"9 lanky awkward kid. we have seen this before. Let his body and coordination catch up with his mind. Has a smooth shot also. Side note. Miller could be a steal in a couple years. Memphis has great basketball minds in the city. Ive heard only glowing things about Millers potential as a top head coach. Pretty smart people are saying he is ready right now to step into a top school and produce. Of course recruiting is his golden ticket. Maybe a long shot. But I think a young connected coach like Miller. Would kill it at a place like IU. Give him that fan base and resources. With his connections in the recruiting world. Just could see him running with it.

    Miller went to the same high school as a woman I know: Mitchell SD. They won a state championship when he was a senior. They played in the Corn Palace. I asked her how many schools were in each class in SD, and she said maybe 25.

    Fun fact: Tom Ostrom was on staff at Florida when Mike Miller played there.

    I can see why a kid might want to stay closer to home so it would not surprise me that he would go to Memphis. Man, when I see the sons of players where I remember their dads in college it makes me feel old.

    Not sure the kid looks at Memphis as home? Me I always say Memphis is a great place to be FROM. Kid is gonna be good. Talked to a buddy of mine back in Mempho and i asked about the kid. He said the kid is just waiting on his athletic game to catch up with his size. Kid is 16 or 17 at almost 7ft. Im sure he is a little awkward trying to run and jump. May want to get in on him and his dad now. In 2 years could be a great start to a new staff and roster at IU.

    If he is anything like his Dad, having this kid alongside Trey Kaufman would really create a spread floor.
