·2 min read

Leonard Miller, a 6-foot-11 forward in the high school class of 2022, has been reportedly ruled eligible to enter the 2022 NBA draft, according to Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated.

Miller, who was born in Canada, completed a postgraduate year at Fort Erie International Academy and is currently being recruited by Kentucky and Arizona. He is also considering signing with the NBA G League Ignite for next season.

The 18-year-old declared for the NBA draft last month while maintaining his collegiate eligibility and is now eligible to be selected after some questions were raised by teams regarding his status. He can now interview and work out with teams.

Miller participated with Team World at the Nike Hoop Summit last month in Portland, Oregon. He recorded 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in a loss to USA Basketball. He impressed during his 18 minutes and looked to be the best player on the team.

He projects to have the skills needed to eventually make the transition to the NBA. He has an all-around offensive game and can even step out and shoot from distance. On the other side, Miller boasts a 7-foot-2 wingspan and can protect the paint.

Miller will have the opportunity to receive feedback from NBA teams during the pre-draft process, which will help his decision for next season. He has the tools to eventually make it into the NBA but could benefit by waiting a year and playing either in college or with the Ignite.

He has until June 1 to withdraw his name from the draft.
