With many senior prospects in the state of Arizona still unsigned for girl's basketball, many 21014 prospects will be looking to find college homes over the next month. For Basha High School's 5-foot-7 senior guard Samirah Miller, she considered whether to wait and play through the spring evaluation period, or sign with a college program now - securing her spot for the future.
This week, Miller decided to elect to sign with a local junior college program - signing a national letter of intent with Pima Junior College and their women's basketball staff. Miller will also continue to play through the spring for competition purposes, in an attempt to attract the attention of division-I or division-II college programs. Miller still could sign with a four-year college program if the opportunity presents itself.
Miller is a talented guard prospect with a nice overall skillset and good toughness as a player. She is a good ball handler and passer with good overall versatility, and is capable of playing several positions on the floor for her team. She has a nice overall feel for the game. A good shooter with range. Also an excellent defender with good lateral quickness, Miller is capable of becoming a lockdown defender at the collegiate level. Miller's best year's are ahead of her, as she is one of the best sleeper prospects in Arizona's 2014 class.
This past season, as a senior at Basha HS, Miller averaged 7.2 points and 2.3 assists per/game.
Miller is also the first girl's prospect from the Arizona Magic girl's program to sign with a college program.
Congratulations to Miller and her family on this accomplishment.
