This is the last thing I’ll say on Adam.

I hope he gets what he wants. I think he made a huge mistake not going to the game and getting cheered with his teammates. 15 years from now he’s gonna look back at this and regret it as now he’s not apart of the home state program. His cousin is. That said for his sake I really hope this was his choice. Good luck Adam.
Would you please remind me who is his cousin?

Wish him the best. It's an odd situation. He was poised for a monster year here. Could have been the best player on the team. There is a lot to this story.

Hope Adam does well. One of the more bizarre situations I can recall. There is still so much that doesn't make sense, but hope he makes the best of it.
Excellent landing spot for AM! I probably couldn't have chosen a better (and hopefully obscure) destination. Thrilled he did not end up in the Big10, particularly at Michigan.

Good luck with your career Adam!

Sure he did or BU wouldn't have played him as much as he did.
I think coaches saw what we all saw. A kid who pouted most of the year. Go back and look at film. Beginning of the year I thought that was just his style. As curbello got more attention is when it got worse. I think Adam only started because brad knew he wasn’t happy and might leave. You can’t hide your true feeling for that long and not have people know what’s up. Good bye and not good luck. No one will even know who he is down there. They may think he’s a walk on for the football team

Is this the same LSU.....(From ESPN)
The exodus of players from LSU was expected. But it also comes as the NCAA continues to look into allegations of improper recruiting tactics by coach Will Wade.

I find it strange that he did not visit LSU and has never even been in the state of Louisiana. The Missouri point guard is transferring there as well.

I think AM is in the same situation as many young athletes who are told from early on that they will play in the NBA/NFL/MLB/Olympics and have enough talent to excel in HS and beyond. Even an athlete as skilled as AM is still a long shot to live that dream but he is close enough you can't blame him for chasing that dream anywhere he believes he needs to go. The pressure on young people like him is extreme and I am sure he can taste what he sees as a great future in the NBA and he has to take advice from people who may or may not know what is best for him. Most of us have not faced that pressure and had to make a choice that young and that impactful on our lives. I cannot bad mouth a young person for whatever decision they make in that kind of pressure. I can only be glad for the year of effort here and hope he can find what he is looking for at his next stop. Go get that dream young Mr. Miller and thanks for the year in O&B.

No need to bad mouth the kid anymore. It’s over. His decision may be bad but it’s his own
I agree with this with the caveat Adam Miller is like many players that come out of HS ranked in that 40 -80 range, he would have had to really work to get to the NBA. I would argue that is exactly what Ayo did. Ayo is/was a very good player coming out of HS, but he had holes in his game. He worked on them (still is really) and he will play in the NBA.
If Adam thinks that it will just happen for him he is dead wrong. Lots of potential but also several holes. Like many kids his age and talent level. I always hope every kid does well Illinois or not, but LSU provides nothing that Illinois did not for Adam.

Good luck kid. Whatever his reason for leaving it’s over. Let’s focus on the team at hand, how we get back to the Tourney and make it past the second round.
We addressed his leave with great transfers and recruits. Mark Smith similarities, both overrated.

I've seen the Baton Rouge campus and it's nothing short of beautiful. But from May to mid October? No thank you. He'll wish he was in Chambana.

Overrated? I thought he had a great Freshman year as the 4th/5th best player on the team

I think your words answer the question.
