MBB Inks George Mason Transfer Jordan Miller
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami head men’s basketball coach Jim Larrañaga announced Tuesday the signing of Jordan Miller.
A 6-foot-6, 202-pound guard/forward, Miller spent the last three seasons at George Mason University, where he earned Third Team All-Atlantic 10 honors in 2020-21.
“We are excited to welcome Jordan and his family into our program here at Miami,” Larrañaga said. “Jordan is a jack-of-all-trades on the court. He is a very versatile player who can score, rebound and defend. He plays extremely hard and has an excellent basketball IQ.”
Miller appeared in 69 games at George Mason and started 66 of them, including all 32 in 2019-20. He averaged 13.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game during his tenure with the Patriots, while shooting 48.1 percent from the floor.
The Middleburg, Va., native posted his best season in 2020-21, en route to the all-league accolades. He averaged 15.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Miller placed sixth in the A-10 in offensive rebounds per game (2.4), No. 10 in scoring and No. 11 in field-goal percentage (46.3).
Over the course of his three years at George Mason, Miller tallied 50 double-digit scoring performances. He thrice reached 25-plus points, including a career-best 30-point showing on Nov. 28, 2020, against Howard. In addition, Miller tallied seven double-doubles as a Patriot.
An accomplished prep player before heading off to college, Miller set the scoring record at Loudoun Valley High School with over 1,700 points in his career. He twice earned VHSL All-State honors and garnered VHSL 4A Player of the Year accolades as a junior in 2017-18.
Miller will join the Hurricanes for the 2021-22 campaign with two years of collegiate eligibility remaining. He is the third newcomer Miami has inked, joining high school standouts Nisine Poplar and Jakai Robinson, both of whom signed in November.
