Hercy Miller Has Reportedly Ended His Basketball Career at Tennessee State University And Entered the NCAA transfer portal
The 19-year-old and 6-foot-3 freshman guard, Hercy Miller, reportedly had to leave Tennessee State University due to lack of medical resources.
Master P’s son, has ended his basketball career at Tennessee State University and entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to a report from Stadium’s Jeff Goodman on Monday (Dec. 6).
Miller is now looking to play elsewhere. The rap mogul called for increased funding for medical services at HBCUs after his son’s injury.
According to The Tennessean, the injury almost ended the young man’s promising career.
Four days after he suffered the injury, the school’s medical team cleared Hercy to play in the next two games against Norfolk State.
He had reportedly been dealing with a hurt knee for a while and tried playing through the pain.
Master P, as a concerned parent, pushed for his son to get a second opinion and even took him to a specialist.
TMZ Sports reported that Master P said historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) need increased funding to provide the same level of medical services as the major collegiate basketball programs.
He added that his freshman son played only a few games, but other universities wanted to recruit him.
