(WTNH)–One of UConn’s biggest problems last season was that it couldn’t score. At all. Ever. Well, the Huskies may soon be getting some help with that.
Cornell forward Shonn Miller is looking to transfer from the school and play elsewhere as a grad student next season. The 6-7 forward redshirted his junior year after having shoulder surgery and, because of the Ivy League’s rule disallowing fifth-year students to play, he’s now looking for a new home.
Miller will visit UConn next weekend, accoding to the Hartford Courant.
The Euclid, Ohio native averaged 16.8 points and 8.5 rebounds for the Big Red last season, and was named first-team All-Ivy League.
Of course, the Huskies know how good the Ivy was last season, as they were upset at home by Yale.
“I think Shonn is a tremendous talent,” Yale coach James Jones told the Courant. “He’s big, strong, athletic, he had some thunderous dunks over his career, you shake your head at how awesome they were. He’s a tremendous defensive rebounder. … He can fall in love with the three-pointer. I think he’s more effective scoring around the basket and he could be a better offensive rebounder.”
