Who can blame Miller for holding off for a couple months? Hopefully we show him the upside, and are able to all the right people happy. Gonna be a nervous couple months....
Arizona State has got a real good shot at Josh Christopher and Isaiah Todd.Disappointed initially with Miller's comments. However, he just may want to see how the Illini do early on and what happens with the NCAA and Arizona.
Unless Bobby Hurley is a phenomenal pitch man, I can't see him heading to Az St.
THE MOST important feature AND the hardest to rank.Listen, how do you rank so many HS athletes?! It's nearly impossible. I think it's like the NBA draft, after the first round (and many would argue earlier), you're picking based on need or project of some kind. It's the same with rankings. However the criteria or discussions each of these ranking groups have, after the first 10-20, it's a discussion of who's less flawed than the other. So for me, while being ranked in the top 100 is nice, all it means for me is that you've probably had either more exposure, shown good skill, and are more likely to succeed...but it isn't a determinate of success. Look at good ol' alex legion...kentucky recruit, but didn't pan out. I may be soft for the underdog story, but if CH can put in the work, he can become a contributor. Heck, even Ayo needed help, but what has set him apart has been his work ethic. Constantly improving, changing his game to fit the needs of the team and the college game.
Based on the fact that of the remaining schools "favored" for Miller include both AZ schools and Kansas and Louisville. It is not surprising that he wants to wait and probably see where all the other PG/CG commit too, meaning if he likes another school potentially more than he still likes us, then one of them commit there, then does he commit to us? Say if Love commits to L-Ville, and this is his favorite school, then why would he then commit?More than likely it’s going to be a few months before I decide on a college.
While I want his commitment yesterday, there is little to no downside risk for a player of his caliber. Unless he truly has a favorite he doesn’t want to miss out on. That doesn’t appear to be the case. For a number of these highly ranked kids, it seems the longer they wait the more interest they get.@KedPrince4: #Illini Bball recruiting News. Spoke with 6’4” ’20 5- guard Adam Miller briefly regarding his official visit at Illinois this past weekend: It was fun, I had a good time. More than likely it’s going to be a few months before I decide on a college.
Not the news I wanted to hear. Its good that he had a good time. I hope he remembers that in a few months.
This is just my take, but I'd rather take an ultra talented, physically gifted kid, who might need a kick in the rear vs a kid who's skills are limited, but has "a great motor".Seriously? You think that? I've seen so MANY cases where people with talent flame out way faster than those who just work harder.
I got you. They have to get on Curbelo even harder & look at other targets as well. They should be doing that no matter what. They have been on this kid forever. I just believe he is a special player.While I want his commitment yesterday, there is little to no downside risk for a player of his caliber. Unless he truly has a favorite he doesn’t want to miss out on. That doesn’t appear to be the case. For a number of these highly ranked kids, it seems the longer they wait the more interest they get.
No insider information here....but I would think Miller would want to announce his intentions before his season begins...that would be mid-late November ....but I'm just speculatingEarly signing period begins Nov. 13th. We play 3 games before then, the only notable one being AZ (Nov. 10). Miller will probably have made his choice before then.
Really a Final 2. Miami and ILL.@papicurbelo11: Thank you to all the schools that have recruited me after speaking with my family & coach these are my final five schools...
