IU basketball recruiting: 2021 forward Mason Miller puts Indiana in final two

(Note:  See this Sunday update)

Indiana and Creighton have long been thought to be class of 2021 forward Mason Miller’s top two schools, and he confirmed that on Saturday afternoon.

Miller announced that the Hoosiers and Blue Jays were his final two schools on his social media accounts.

Miller has never visited the Indiana campus or basketball facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  A national 247Sports report indicated that Miller and his family took a self-guided tour of Creighton and may attempt to do the same thing in Bloomington.

The 6-foot-9 Miller is the son of former NBA player Mike Miller, who is now the head coach of Mason and his younger brother Maverick at Houston High School in the Memphis, Tenn. area.

Indiana assistant coach Tom Ostrom was with the Florida program as an administrative assistant/video coordinator when the elder Miller played in Gainesville under head coach Billy Donovan from 1998-2000.

A versatile inside/out wing, Miller is a four-star recruit in the class of 2021, and the No. 65 player nationally. His recruitment picked up significantly in 2019 after a breakout AAU season.  Miller is perhaps best known as a stretch-four perimeter sharpshooter.

Miller has eliminated other high majors over the last six months including Ohio State, Florida, TCU and Memphis.

It is not clear when Miller intends to announced his decision.

Indiana currently has one commit in its 2021 class.  Center Logan Duncomb signed his national letter of intent earlier in the week.

The Hoosiers are also pursuing 2021 guard Aminu Mohammed, who is expected to announce a decision in the next two weeks.
