IU Basketball Recruiting: Class of 2021 Names to Know — Mason Miller

With Trayce Jackson-Davis and Al Durham already on the roster, and Khristian Lander on the way, Indiana seems to have a thing for left-handers.

The Hoosiers have had discussions with another southpaw this winter, and he is a player with impressive basketball bloodlines.

As first reported by Khari Thompson of the Memphis Commercial Appeal in January, top-60 class of 2021 Tennessee based forward Mason Miller has been hearing from the IU coaching staff, and Indiana is one of the programs that he is most interested in.

Miller’s dad is current Memphis assistant and former NBA player and Florida star Mike Miller.

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.

247Sports national writer Brian Snow reported that the Miller family likely prefers that Mason not play for Memphis.

Mason Miller attends Houston High School.  He played AAU ball for Hoop City out of Memphis last summer, and he appeared at the NBPA Top 100 Camp

A versatile inside/out wing, Miller is a four-star recruit in the class of 2021, and the No. 58 player nationally.  His recruitment picked up significantly last spring and summer after a breakout AAU season.

The 6-foot-9 Miller is already taller than his father.

Miller has offers from a number of high major programs, and he told the Commercial Appeal that he is interested in Ohio State, Florida, Memphis and Indiana.  Miller’s uncle Ryan Miller is an assistant at TCU, which could be another option.
