Master P's son is following in the family business of playing Divison 1 basketball.
Hercy Miller chose TSU because he wanted to continue the path made by other high-profile high school basketball players in choosing HBCUs over traditional college bluebloods.
Miller, a 6-foot-3 senior guard at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, announced his decision at his school alongside his pops. The younger Miller says he fielded offers from Vanderbilt, LSU, UCLA, USC, Missouri, South Carolina, Arizona, Georgetown and several other larger schools before deciding to join the historically Black university’s roster.
“I’ve been taught to be a leader, and not follow the crowd. And I want to make a change, I want to make a difference,” Miller said to Stephen A. Smith. “With me, I can change the narrative. People think that you need to go to a big school to become a pro or be great. That’s not true.”
P took to Instagram on Friday (March 26) to celebrate his son’s decision along with a Tennessee State hype video.
“My son @hercymiller commits to Tennessee State university,” P wrote. “#History #Nashville #weallwegot #Godisgood #HBCU @oprah @kamalaharris @samuelljackson @officialspikelee @atf_33 @common @stephenasmith My son said he chose this school to make a difference, and I’m proud of him for having that type of courage to be a trailblazer!”
