May make sense the Miller statement of wanting to play alongside Curbleo...I think Miller weakest part of the game might be ball handling (full time), and with Curbelo creating space and shots for Miller, as well as handling the majority of ball handling when they are playing together, it is a win win for all. I thought I saw somewhere, where Miller stated that he needed to work on this aspect much more than any other part of his game. Curbelo is a true PG, Miller seems to be a PG/SG who is more dangerous in the half court.

I had the chance last weekend to watch Miller play a bit at the Jr National tryouts in Colorado Springs while I was doing some work with the USOC sports med team. He was the primary point guard during the drills and scrimmages I watched and looked really good doing so. I would agree that his shot is ahead of his ball handling game (but that's because his shot looked so smooth, ahead of how Ayo was shooting as a senior in my opinion). He was on the same team as Caleb Love, and the two played off each other very well in the backcourt. Their team dominated every time I came by to watch.

Does anyone know if Curbelo is still taking any visits?

Great part of this class (assuming we get Miller and Curbelo) is the fit not the ranking. Another big who is very mobile and guards to replace Ayo and Dre. With Grandison and Hutherson becoming eligible and another year of experience for 8 players it should be another step up.

I just watched by first Curbelo highlights... Wow.. Kid is good. Has a great looking jumper and has great court vision. Essentially a Feliz who can shoot.
