FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU men's basketball head coach Trent Johnson announced the signing of Jalon Miller Wednesday morning.
"Jalon comes from a great family. He was our No. 1 target and has been a priority for our program for over a year," said Johnson. "With us losing Trey Zeigler and Amric Fields following this season, Jalon will give us scoring and rebounding from the wing position. He will have a great impact on our program and we are looking forward to being a part of his continued growth as a basketball player."
Miller, a Dallas native, will don the Purple and White next season after being ranked a four-star recruit and the 19th best small forward in the nation by ESPN.com. He also currently ranks No. 10 overall among ESPN's 2015 Top Texas Recruits and sits just outside the top-10 among all players in the Midlands region.
The 6-foot-8 forward, who is a three-star rated recruit according to Rivals and Scout.com, averaged 22.5 points and 13.6 rebounds a game as a junior at Seagoville High School. This past summer, Miller, who currently sits as the No. 28 rated power forward nationally according to Scout.com, averaged 13.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game for Texas Select Elite.
TCU will open its season Friday against Prairie View A&M at Wilkerson-Greines. Tip-off is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. CT.
