Miller is a 6-foot-1 guard from Somerset, New Jersey, who plays at Franklin High School. She helped lead USA Basketball to a gold medal at the 2017 FIBA Americas U-16 championships last summer.
ESPNW ranks Miller the No. 17 player in the 2019 class and the No. 5 guard. She’s averaging 23.7 points per game this season, according to NJ.com.
Maryland is bringing in the nation’s No. 5 recruiting class for 2018, with three five-stars, including the country’s No. 3 overall player, forward Shakira Austin. Its 2019 class is shaping up to be similarly formidable.
Miller joins five-star point guard and the nation’s No. 8 player in Ashley Owusu, as well as four-star guard Zoe Young (No. 38 overall player) and another New Jersey product in four-star wing Faith Masonius (No. 53).
