2021 combo guard RaSean McMiller emerged for Rich Central (IL) after transferring from Thornwood.
The 6-3 guard averaged around 18.5 points per game and helped Rich Central reach the 3A Regional Final.
Following the season, Detroit decided it saw enough of his game and offered him a scholarship.
“It’s big because where I’m from it’s not a lot of opportunities for kids to get offered,” he said. “I’m just thankful. I’m truly blessed and I appreciate the coach for offering me.”
Detroit had a close eye on McMiller throughout his season. They didn’t pull the trigger earlier because they wanted to see more of his game. But, after thoroughly evaluating him through his junior season, they decided he would be a good addition to their program.
McMiller is at the opening stages of his recruitment process. There are plenty of coaches that have their eye on him right now but his focus remains on his game.
So far, coaches have keyed in on his mid-range shooting and his ability to create his own shot. They also love the tenacity he brings on defense.
“I’m quick on my feet and I can play man-on-man defense. I think coaches like that,” McMiller explained. “I can stay in front of my man, cut him off and make him uncomfortable.”
With the corona virus taking over the sports world and delaying the spring evaluation period, student-athletes have to be more proactive in their pursuits of scholarships.
McMiller doesn’t plan on doing anything differently other than posting more content to Twitter. He will still be reaching out to coaches via email and will continue to work out to prepare himself for the moment when it arises.
“I’m really just working on my three point shot and being able to score on all three levels,” he said. “I’m working on my handles, and just learning the game and gaining an overall better IQ.”
McMiller is currently watching a lot of film and studying game tape. He plans to seize the moment whenever it’s presented. He’s preparing for a great summer that could turn into more scholarship opportunities for himself.
