Chris Miller Verbals to Northern Arizona

Last weekend wing man Chris Miller gave a verbal commitment to Northern Arizona, according to Josh Gershon. Miller becomes the third player committed in what is shaping up to potentially be the best recruiting class in the Big Sky next season.

Last year Miller averaged 21 points and six rebounds per game, and was forced to play inside a lot, showcasing his versatility.

"I went up there a month ago and really liked what was going on," said Miller, who averaged 21 points and nearly six rebounds a game for Greenway last season when he was asked to play inside the paint a lot because of a lack of height on the team. "He really wants to find top in-state talent and I want to be part of that."
Miller is from Phoenix, showing that head coach Jack Murphy is looking to grab the in-state talent.

Murphy has impressed myself and lots of scouts and writers since he has been hired. It is hard to imagine a worst season than NAU had last year, but Murphy has injected a ton of life and hope into the program. With three guys already in the fold for the next recruiting class, the future will be bright for the Lumberjacks.
