Mason Miller signs with men’s basketball program
OMAHA, Neb. – Mason Miller, a 6-foot-9 forward from Germantown, Tennessee, has signed a letter of intent with Creighton’s men’s basketball program.
Miller was named the Mr. AAA Class Basketball winner in Tennessee last month after helping Houston High School to its first state championship. He helped the Mustangs to a 23-3 record and scored a team record of 19.1 points per game.
Miller is considered the No. 78 rookie in 247Sports composite standings and Tennessee’s No. 2 player. He is listed as the No.70 prospect in the 247Sports Rankings, 75e by Rivals and 99e in the latest ESPN rankings.
“We are delighted to add Mason to our program,” said Creighton head coach Greg McDermott. “He has a combination of size, skill and athleticism that will allow for a seamless transition to college basketball. The versatile nature of his game will allow us to use him in different ways on both ends of the court.”
As a junior, Miller was a second-team All-Metro selection while helping Houston reach its first boys’ basketball tournament since the school opened in 1989.
The newest Bluejay comes from a basketball family. His father, Mike Miller, was a 17-year-old NBA veteran and coached his son for the state title this spring.
Miller joins fall signatories John Christofilis and Ryan Nembhard as part of a Creighton recruiting class considered among the top 30 nationally.
Creighton finished 22-9 overall and led BIG EAST with 14 league wins last season, advancing to the program’s first Sweet 16 since 1974.
