Hercy Miller, the son of mogul Percy “Master P” Miller, announced his plan to attend Tennessee State University (TSU).
Miller said he wants to commit to TSU to put the spotlight on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).
“I’ve always grown up being a leader. My dad told me to never follow the crowd, and I want to make a difference,” Miller said. “Most people think that HBCUs are mid-major schools and they can’t do it. A lot of star pros come out of HBCUs and mid-major, they just don’t have the spotlight. So with me, I want to put the spotlight on all the HBCUs around, and I just want to see the bigger picture and change the narrative.”
Miller is one of the top high school basketball players in the country, and maybe the nation. He attends Minnehaha Academy located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Miller is 6-foot-3 and plays guard. He was given several offers from many major universities across the country such as USC, LSU, Georgetown, and many more. He turned down those offers to play at a smaller university where he feel he’ll make a bigger difference.
During the announcement, Miller said he wants to be one of the next successful people to come out of an HBCU. He said he plans to work hard to achieve that goal.
Congratulations Hercy Miller!!!
