Jordan Miller commits to George Mason, first of 2018 class

C-Og6HHXcAAhhqlDave Paulsen was one of the first Division I coaches after the Loudoun Valley standout Jordan Miller. It paid off after an official visit this weekend as the 6’4″ wing committed to George Mason on Saturday afternoon.

This is a great pickup and start to the 2018 recruiting class for Dave Paulsen and his staff. He was a bit of unknown to most because he doesn’t play on an AAU team. However, Paulsen did his homework on the kid and most seem to think he has the potential to be something great at Mason. Paulsen found sleepers like Miller time and time again while at Bucknell and certainly has gotten the most out of his players so far while at Mason. A solid combo guard who can also play on the wing will be needed with Otis Livingston II and Jaire Grayer’s senior year’s not too far away.

Here is a great writeup in the Washington Post back in February about Miller trying to diversity his offensive game during his junior season.

Also here is another writeup about his game from October 2016:

Jordan Miller was the leading scorer for the 26-1 Loudoun Valley Vikings last year. The 6-foot-4 wing, who absolutely could not be kept out of the paint last year, averaged 16 points per game as a sophomore. After breaking out in a big way, Miller could take his game to another level this year.

“I’m a left hand slasher. I like to drive to the lane,” said Miller, who started playing competitive basketball in fifth grade. “I can shoot a little bit on the outside but mostly slash and get rebounds.”

Miller is a long-limbed athlete who likes to get up and down. He rebounds particularly well out of his position, and is learning to put the ball on the floor and use his off hand.

“I need to work on going right,” Miller stated. “So far, no one has stopped me going left. But right is gonna be a good tool in college.”
