Fresh off the announcement that Rashad Muhammad would be headed to Coral Gables as a transfer, UM got some more terrific news this afternoon.

At 6'10 220, Miller is a 4-star center, #77 on Scout, #93 on Rivals, #102 on 247 and 4 star prospect on ESPN as well.

4 star players at any position are nice to have.  And Miller appears to have tremendous upside.

But most importantly he can come in and instantly combine with 2015 freshman Ebuka Izundu and fill a void that will be present when Tonye Jekiri graduates.

Big time bigs are very hard to come by.  Especially ones from elite programs like Oak Hill Academy.

Miller is also a captain on his H.S. team and carries a 4.0 GPA.

This is a huge get for Coach L and staff.

He also received interest from Duke, Kansas, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest among others.

Some highlights:
