Report: Former Illinois hoops star Adam Miller settles on transfer destination
Former Illinois freshman Adam Miller sent some shockwaves through the college basketball world when he decided to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal after a big first year with the Fighting Illini. But he’s decided to move on.
Miller has already found a new home.
According to 247Sports, Miller has committed to play at LSU next season under head coach Will Wade. He picked the Tigers over other top-tier programs like Kentucky and Michigan, per the report.
In his lone season with the Fighting Illini, Miller averaged 8.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and just under 1 assist per game while logging over 25 minutes per contest. He played a key role in helping Illinois secure a 16-4 record in the B1G, win the conference tournament and lock up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Miller started in all 31 games for the Illini last season. He’ll have all four years of eligibility remaining at LSU because of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for winter student-athletes.
