Tavario Miller visited South Carolina over the weekend and a decision could come in the near future.…
A&M Hoops Adds Another Signee
"Yes, I signed with Texas A&M," Miller said.
The 6-foot-8, 215-pound versatile small forward had officially visited Tulsa, Illinois State, and Louisiana Tech when his improved early season performances garnered the attention of Frank Martin and South Carolina. After taking his last official visit to USC on the weekend of November 10, Texas A&M came forward with a late offer when sophomore Daniel Alexander abruptly left the team opening up a spot in the class. So Miller took an unofficial visit to Texas A&M last weekend.
"I've been to Texas A&M several times and I know their coaches," Miller said. "They didn't have a spot for me until last week when a player left. I liked my visit to South Carolina but I felt I needed to see what A&M had to offer."
After his unofficial visit, he narrowed down his list to just South Carolina and Texas A&M. After talking to his mother and high school coaches Sunday night, he decided he wanted to be an Aggie.
"My mom left it up to me. She just wanted me to be happy with my decision," Miller said. "I trust the A&M coaches and my coaches trust what the A&M staff was telling them. It wasn't just one factor why I chose A&M. It was an overall feeling. A&M was a better fit."
Miller played his AAU ball with the Franchize All-Stars but it was his improved play in recent weeks with Houston Wheatley that turned heads and got some BCS schools involved late in the process. Prior to his senior season, he was seen by college coaches as an undersized traditional post. But he's been both a score and a rebounder so far this fall, averaging 36 points and nearly 20 rebounds a game.
"I worked hard to improve my ballhandling and now I can score from anywhere on the court," Miller said. "The A&M coaches said they love my versatility. I can play inside or outside. I can create mismatches."
Miller joins Georgia wing Davonte Fitzgerald in Texas A&M's early signing class. The Aggies are expected to add at least two more players either at mid-term or in the spring signing period where a true post and a combo guard is needed.
