FRANCO Miller Jr’s tenure with the Ole Miss Rebels men’s basketball programme has come to an end.
Miller announced his intention to enter the NCAA’s transfer portal and will have three years of eligibility remaining when he signs to a new programme.
“To the University of Mississippi. I have greatly enjoyed my time here at Ole Miss. I’d like to thank the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity, my teammates and friends that I have made on and off the court. The support here at Ole Miss was tremendous.
“I’ll cherish the amount of memories and friendships I made in Oxford,” he said in a message posted to social media. “However, after constant conversations with my family, I feel like now is in my best interest to enter my name into the transfer portal.”
Miller played sparingly last season as a redshirt freshman and appeared in just 13 games. In those few appearances, he reached double figures in minutes just three times.
He scored four points in his season debut against Alabama State, but would go scoreless for the remainder of the season.
Prior to the NCAA’s cancellation of winter and spring sports due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Rebels’ season ended with a 81-63 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs in the first round of the SEC Tournament.
