Guard Adam Miller withdraws from transfer portal, will return to LSU

·2 min read

Coach Matt McMahon is cooking with gas in Baton Rouge, now.

On Friday, the Tigers got some colossal news when it was announced that guard Adam Miller, who entered the transfer portal following the conclusion of the 2021-22 season, would withdraw from the portal and return to LSU.

Miller said on April 29 that he had narrowed his choices down to transferring to TCU or remaining with the Tigers, and he has now made his choice. He becomes the third player to withdraw from the portal since McMahon was hired, joining guard Justice Williams and forward Mwani Wilkinson.

The news that Miller would be returning to the team was first reported by college hoops insider Jon Rothstein.

Miller later confirmed that decision himself via his Twitter account.

He transferred into the program from Illinois last offseason with high expectations. A former four-star recruit and consensus top-50 prospect from Chicago, Miller started all 31 games he appeared in as a true freshman for the Fighting Illini, averaging 8.3 points per game while shooting a very solid 34% from three-point range.

He was expected to be a major part of LSU’s offense this season, but a torn ACL before it began held him off the court, and he took a redshirt year.

With Miller back in the fold, the Tigers shore up their backcourt quite a bit, and he will have a good chance of earning a starting spot for the team this fall.
