Daniel Miller, a 6-foot-11, 240-pound center from Loganville Christian Academy, on Tuesday got the release he sought from the letter of intent he signed with Georgia last fall.
“The family of Daniel Miller expressed a desire for Daniel to be released from his letter of intent,” Georgia coach Mark Fox said in a statement. “After meeting with them over the weekend, I have granted Daniel his complete release. I wish him well in the career path he chooses for himself.”
That is the question now: What path will Miller, 17, choose?
When Miller signed with Georgia in November, Dennis Felton was the Bulldogs coach, and the Dogs won a battle with Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Minnesota and Stanford. He now is free to sign with any of them, or somebody else, without having to sit out a season.
A phone message left for Miller at his parents’ house was not returned Tuesday night after word of his release was published online.
Georgia had an advantage over the other schools initially because Miller comes from a long line of family members who went to the school. The school’s track is named for Spec Towns, one of Miller’s relatives.
Miller led Loganville Christian to its third straight championship in the Independent Christian Schools of Georgia-Alabama while being named most valuable player for the second consecutive season. He averaged 20.8 points, eight rebounds, five blocks and connected on 73 percent of his shots. He played only the first half of many games because his team often blew out its opponents, winning 71 of 73 games during his time there.
