Add another Arizona prospect to the list of division-I commits this fall. Greenway High School's talented 6-foot-3, 175-pound senior combo-guard prospect Chris Miller recently put his name into the commitment hat when he gave a verbal pledge to Northern Arizona University and new head coach Jack Murphy and his basketball staff.
Miller had generated loads of recruiting interest for himself after a strong summer performance - a performance which brought him a lof division-I college attention. This off-season Miller competed for head coach Sal Garcia and his up-and-coming Team Zona club program.
Miller is coming off an excellent junior season where he led his Demons to a solid 13-8 overall record on the season. While his team's performance was not close to his own on the season, Miller was impressive - averaging 20.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per/game.
As a result of his strong play last season, Miller made a nice entry into our 2013 Summer Player Rankings, and will look to make another jump in our up-and-coming Fall Player Rankings.
Miller's overall skill level and ability to play the game will serve him nicely at the collegiate level. Miller has excellent athleticism and a good overall feel for the game, especially since he has been under the teaching of long-time legendary head coach Howard Mueller. Coach Mueller helped to develop me as a player in the late 1980's, and continues to develop his basketball talent to it's highest degree at the Greenway program.
Miller chose Northern Arizona over interest from UC Irvine, Portland, Cal Fullerton, Cal State Northridge and the Air Force Academy.
At Northern Arizona, he will also be joining former Peoria HS star guard Dewayne Russell. Russell signed with Northern Arizona late last spring.
Miller has indicated that this high school season he plans to lead his Demons to a state championship.
Congratulations to Miller and his family on this tremendous accomplishment for himself.
