Of all the news this weekend, possibly the biggest is the decision of 2010 Guard KC Ross-Miller to commit to the University of Kentucky. While 2010 is a long way away, Miller is a special talent, believed by many to be one of the 2-3 best in his class. We caught up with him last night and this was the conversation:
You committed to Kentucky today. What were the factors that led you to make that decision?
Just everything man. I love the coaching staff and they are great people. I have known Coach Gillispie for a while as he recruited me at the other school too and I know that he really wants me in the program. And then I went up there and I just loved everything about it. The place just has basketball all over it. The fans are crazy. The school is nice. Just everything about it is great.
Did you get to tour the campus? What did you think about it?
Yeah I got to go all over the place. The practice facility is crazy. It is just unbelieveable. It is the nicest thing I have ever seen. And I like that the dorm is close by and its really nice too.
Did you spend much time with the players on the team?
Yeah I got to meet them and they were cool. We played some with them and that was great. I am telling you some of those guys are real good. I dont know what everybody else thinks, but I think they are going to be really good this year.
Had you taken other visits? Why did you choose Kentucky?
Yeah I went to Indiana right before Kentucky and it was good. But Kentucky is just a whole notha’ level. I mean everything about it is amazing. It is tough to wait three years man, it is just that good. But now I can focus on some other stuff and just get ready to get up there and show what I can do. I cant wait.
We will have more from KC on our show Tuesday when he joins the Mob at 5:30 pm….look for the Rotnei Clarke interview later in the day……
