Sharing The Wealth: Quincy Miller, Sin City Sensation


Slam Online just ran a nice little snippet on 2011 recruit, Quincy Miller, recapping his game from the Vegas Tournaments. Obviously, Miller is a top notch recruit and is really starting to turn heads.
Miller has a similar body to NBA star Kevin Durant gives off a little bit of a Durant feel to his game. He’s a lanky 6-8 forward who can bomb from deep, but also give you the business inside. Like KD, he’s long, athletic, and has tons of potential down the road. Now he’s nowhere near as polished as the former rookie of the year was his junior year, but there are certainly a number of similarities. Like many kids, the Chicago native bounced to a North Carolina prep school and reclassified a couple of years, so he’s a little older than his pals in the Class of 2011.


While we certainly agree with the Kevin Durant comparison (his stroke and the way he plays are reminiscent of a young Durant), he is only 15 years old, so he actually is a lot YOUNGER than most of his pals in the 2011 class. As his recruitment heats up even more, you can expect a lot more attention and hype. It has been an extremely fast rise for Miller, who entered the summer as somewhat of an unknown. However, if you remember back to the Boo Williams, we mentioned him as a certain force in the 2011 class.

While some are reporting that the Wolfpack staff is not heavily involved with Miller, we've heard otherwise and expect Coach Lowe and company to make a hard push for the local sensation. We'll keep you updated and should be bringing you a Quincy Miller exclusive interview sometime in the near future. Stay Tuned!

    I know for a fact we are recruiting Miller, and going after him hard.

    I also want to give a little credit where it's due. You guys hyped Quincy before anyone else was talking about him. Props for that.

    But also want to add that I've heard from someone close to Miller that he might reclassify into the 2012 class.

    ^ Thanks Wolfman. Actually there was some whispers going around at Pangos that a re-classification to 2012 was an option for Miller, but at this point I doubt it. He won't need an extra year in HS to persuade college coaches that he can be a star.

    Miller turns 19 on Nov. 18, and lets call a spade a spade...Rivals/The Wolfpacker have been following Miller since last Oct. Rivals loves him, hence the high ranking.

    But that ship sailed a long time ago for the Wolfpack. Duke sends their whole staff to every single game and have forged a relationship with Brian Clifton, who will never encourage one of his players to go to NC State as long as Larry Harris is an assistant there, which is stupid stuff going back to Dwon Clifton's recruitment 10 years ago.

    What exactly happened with Brian Clifton and Larry Harris? Do you think it is part of the reason we didn't get John Wall?

    Off topic, but quick question: why is it that NCSU got a lot of recruiting buzz in a quite month like June, but when July (when things were supposed to heat up?) hit, we've basically got crickets? It seems like people having been flying off the board in the last couple of weeks, but I haven't really seen anything subsitive about State? Anyone have any thoughts?

    19 huh? Damn...I didn't know that. I think that pushes his NCAA stock way up. A 20 year old freshman in the tourny handles a lot better than an 18 year old freshman. It's got to hurt his NBA stock a bit though.

    "It seems like people having been flying off the board in the last couple of weeks, but I haven't really seen anything subsitive about State?"

    We don't have any extra schollys to offer right now. We only have one available and I think the staff is looking for a home run big man. These are the players that aren't even going to trim their lists until Feb. I am sure if we had an extra two offers laying around we could jump to the top of a few top kids' list. But we just don't have the room right now.

    But with Brown reclassifying for 2010, doesn't that open up another scholarship because of graduating players? Even so, no news on any big men to tell of?

    "But with Brown reclassifying for 2010, doesn't that open up another scholarship because of graduating players?"

    No, because he still ties up a scholly spot. All we have for now is Farnold's spot and Horner's spot. Harrow has claimed one, the other is up for grabs. We are already heavily courting like 4 players with 1 open spot. I think that's plenty, any more than that and players start to think you are just blowing smoke. We just have to sit tight for now. Try to focus on football, that's what I do.

    Makes sense.

    The reason that we said that Quincy was 15 was because he told us that he was out at Pangos. Rumors were also going around that he would reclassify to 2012.

    Talked with Quincy and he told me that he turns 16 on November 18th.
