The Baylor freshman forward swayed back-and-forth between remaining in school for his sophomore season and entering the 2012 NBA Draft, before ultimately declaring for the Draft for good. Had he gone back to Waco, TX for a second-season, most scouts felt that Miller could have been the team's leader in the frontcourt, replacing the likes of Perry Jones, Quincy Acy and Anthony Jones up front.
Through the two day NBA Draft Combine, Miller failed to impress based on his workouts. Physically, he still doesn't appear fully recovered from a torn ACL from high school. He just is not as explosive as he once was, and scouts are wondering if he ever will get back to that level. Only adding to the turmoil, Miller couldn't find the net in all shooting drills, clanking the rim and even throwing up some ugly air balls throughout.
