Michelle Miller, the standout senior-to-be who led the Panthers to the CIF-SS Division 5AA championship and led the state in scoring with 33 points a game, is headed to Princeton, according to ESPN HoopGurlz.
Miller, a three-star recruit who averaged 13 rebounds, 2.9 steals, 2.1 assists and 1.9 blocked shots, drew a lot of interest from several major Division I schools, including USC where Miller planned on playing while also hoping to take part in the university’s B.A./M.D. program.
Miller is on pace to finish second all-time in the Southern Section for most points in a career behind Hall of Famer Cheryl Miller (3,446). Michelle Miller already etched her name in Southern Section lore when this season she became No. 5 on the list of players with most points in a season (990) and passed the likes of another legend, three-time WNBA MVP and four-time Olympic champion Lisa Leslie.
But the recruiting process came to an end Thursday when, according to her Cal Storm Team Taurasi club coach George Quintero, said Miller gave her verbal to Princeton.
“She has the offensive potential and scoring mind set that should make her an impact player in the Ivy League,” Quintero said to ESPN HoopGirlz. “Michelle’s work ethic will allow he rot fit perfectly into coach (Courtney Banghart’s) system.”
Miller, if you remember, is not only a standout three-sport standout. She’s just as dominant in the classroom. She earned a 5.0 GPA as a junior and plans to major in bio-medical engineering before heading to medical school.
Add this to her already impressive resume.
Miller was named ESPN Rise California Player of the Year in Division V. Here’s what ESPN Rise had to say about her:
