LOGAN, Utah – Utah State men’s basketball head coach Stew Morrill has announced the addition of Brock Miller to the team as part of the 2015-16 signing class. Miller will join the team for the 2017-18 season as he anticipates leaving on a two-year LDS Church mission.
Miller, a 6-5, 195-pound shooting guard from Brighton High School in Salt Lake City, Utah averaged 18 points and six rebounds per game as a junior despite missing half the year with injuries. Miller’s return helped the Bengals advance to the Utah 5A State semi-finals. Miller had one of his best games against Bingham HS earlier in the year where he poured in 35 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, marking one of seven games with 20 or more points. He continued to show his scoring ability, playing for USA basketball in the Albert Schweitzer games last summer where he was one of the top scorers in the tournament.
In addition to excelling on the court, Miller also succeeds in the classroom where he carries a 3.95 grade point average. Basketball is also in the Miller blood as a pair of siblings, Corbin and Brandon, have ties to Division I basketball. Corbin is currently on the Harvard men’s basketball team and Brandon will join the University of Utah upon the completion of his two-year LDS Church mission. He is the son of Brett and Cathy Miller.
“Brock is a great addition to our program,” Morrill said. “His ability and attitude will make him a successful player in the Mountain West Conference.”
In addition to Utah State, Miller was recruited and offered to play at Stanford, Boston College and Harvard.
“Brock was recruited at the highest level and we are so excited that he believes in Utah State’s future,” Morrill continued. “Brock is a proven scorer that can do multiple things on the court. It will be awesome seeing him doing it all in an Aggie uniform.”
