Miller was set to make his debut for LSU this season after he transferred from Illinois. He played 1 season with the Fighting Illini and averaged 8.3 points per game and almost 3 rebounds per game to go along with it. He also shot 34% from the 3-point range.
His best game last season came during the opener when he finished with 28 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Before originally committing to Illinois, Miller was part of the 2020 recruiting class and was the No. 2 player in Illinois, plus the No. 6 guard in the country per 247Sports Composite. He also was the No. 33 player overall in that class, regardless of position.
This is a big blow for the Tigers as Miller was looking to pick up where he left off at the end of last season.
