Think of a longer Nate James. You gonna tell him what he is or isn't?
With Q and Kyrie on the floor, there would be NO question of whether Duke was athletic.
Can you imagine how good of a weak side defender he could be at Duke? Shots would be blocked, I tell you.
On offense, so much would be dictated by match-ups, but with Kyrie and a bevy of heady marksmen on the perimeter, Q could post up without a double team or get unlimited open 10-12 jumpers.
I hope Q is enjoying this year's success, picturing how well he would fit in.
Miller has actually grown to 6'10" and yes he is very versatile. He has a solid handle already and can shoot the 3 ball but is capable down low both offensively and defensively. He is originally from Illinois and still has family there so that probably explains why he is visiting there now.
Just found out that I'm headed to the UK on Friday and watching the game sat.
looks like he is headin to UK. bleh!
Maybe he's going to the United Kingdom.
they do indeed, especially when they have handlers (coaches) who have an agenda. i'm not saying this is the case but the coach (handler) has a history of guiding his players to certain destanations. It doesn't always work but he can try.
I think that Clifton is less involved with Miller than Wall, but he wasn't exactly the guy leading Wall to Kentucky if we are to believe Gary Parrish and some of the other national guys who cover recruiting.
From Quincy's Tweet:
Coach K just told me someone sent him a prank email from me and said I was comitting from MY EMAIL ADDRESS
The Terrapin Assassin
Just left UK and all I can say is WOW!!
Yo peeps; calm down!! I did not commit anywhere yet!! - 3:20 Eastern today
Just left UK and all I can say is WOW!! - an hour ago
What about those Cats? Haha hanging with J.wall right now! He got off..thanx to Carolina! Kentucky! - 22 hours ago
Just got to Kentucky! Gametime soon..let's get money cats - yesterday morning before the game
I can remember when I got all excited about Chris Burgess completing that class. That was the first and last time I let myself do that.
Nowdays it seems like recruiting is the more entertaining part of the college game for some - kind of like how "fantasy" sports have taken over the pro sports fandom. Oh well, I guess it's the fans that dictate what is entertaining.
I was rooting for Conn based on Quincy Miller. Based on his Twitter updates, he was following the game closely and has become quite the UK fan. For similar reasons relating to Rivers, I'm hoping Fla loses soon.
Meanwhile, in Lexington, UK had one of their top targets visiting. Quincy Miller took in the UNC/UK game and I had the chance to speak with his coach, Isaac Pitts, today about that visit:
DR: Can you tell me a little bit about the visit and what Quincy was able to do?
Coach Pitts: He loved it. He liked the fans, the atmosphere that they played in, Kentucky as a whole. The coaching staff was great. He liked it. He knows John Wall and he had a chance to hang out with John and stuff like that, so he enjoyed it, he was excited.
DR: Do you know of anything that just really left an impression on Quincy?
Coach Pitts: Nationally televised game against Carolina. 25,000. Thatís the wow right there. Everybody in the country watching the game, 25,000 people watching, jam-packed, standing room only, Kentucky wins. You know how Kentucky fans are. I donít know what else you could look at, what else you could say or what else would wow him. If youíre a player, thatís the kind of atmosphere you want to play in.
DR: Whatís next for Quincy?
Coach Pitts: Iím sure thatís not a one and done situation, just go to UK and thatís it and donít visit anywhere else. I would think not. Heís going to take five (official) visits. That would be my advice but who knows? If a kid likes a place enough that they say this is where I want to go, which he hasnít indicated that to me, so I donít know. I would just imagine thatís the process. I know that UK, they do a good job and, like I said what is not to like, but I donít know that so I canít sit here and say whether heíll take another visit or he wonít. Who knows?
