    Miller is on the same AAU team as Dom Collier.

    We should consider him among the top targets for 2014 now.

    From earlier today by Will (at the Pangos Fab 48 AAU tourney in Vegas scouting Miller and others):

    • Next up was Tory Miller. Miller is built like a brick house and has tremendous athleticism as well, making him a sleeper in the Buffs' recruitment of '14 big men. He doesn't have an offer yet, but that could change after the staff meets to recap their impressions of the tournament.

    Big body! Can he jump? Highlights showed a lot of dunks but nothing impressively above the rim. Muscle is good but I'd like some elevation to go with it for rebounding.

    Watch that first blocked shot at about 22 seconds. He takes one step across the lane and gets well above the rim for that block. He's not going to be the most explosive athlete off the floor, but a 6'8"-6'9", 250lb kid with that kind of athleticism and a willingness to attack the rim can be a scary thing in college basketball. I hope Dom keeps working this one, because Miller is the perfect compliment to our other bigs.

    Just look at the screen cap on his highlight video. Kid's elbows are at the rim. Plus he gets up quickly. Kid is a solid #2 on the wish-list at this point behind Humphrey.

    Buffs could definitely use some front court presence.

    I like him more than Humphrey because there is no guarantee Humphrey will add the necessary weight and this guy is solid

    He'd be great whenever we find ourselves in another 'Arizona St' game.

    I'd take Miller over Humphrey too. The biggest weakness on the current roster is size/strength along the frontline. Miller is one of those rare players who could potentially fill that need while not taking anything away from the team's overall athleticism.

    I will admit it would be nice to have a frontcourt that doesn't always make us lament "can this team put any weight on?" Someone who can beat up others in the paint will be a valuable get. The Dom connection makes me hopeful that we have a shot at getting Tory as a tall player with some athleticism to go with his bulk is pretty rare to recruit out of high school. I don't know how great the odds are of Mike Rohn being on staff a couple years from now but I enjoy the prospect of him coaching a physical talent like this one should we be able to get him to Boulder.

    A couple thoughts, He has solid fundamentals and footwork in the post. Guys that are 6-8 and 250 in High School don't necessarily need to have good fundamentals, they can usually use their sheer size to over power players. It's nice to see that he has the fundamentals, it makes the transition to the next level much easier. He has a good looking shot and high release, in that video his FT form and a couple of jumpers he makes from the corner all look good. Love the baby hook!

    Fans tend to pay attention to seven footers but college BB has a lot more 6'8"-6'10" guys who can hurt you. This kid looks like the kind of guy who could give us a frontcourt presence and still fit into what Tad likes to do.

    The big plus is that he could be a presence on both ends of the court without having to worry about covering for him due to a lack of bulk or of mobility.

    Arizona State & California have offered 2014 PF Tory Miller of KC Run GMC (MO).

    Tad's Offers carry a lot of weight now a days. I want this kid even more now.

    According to his twitter he also has Tulsa, VCU, and Okie State offers. He was also tweeting with Collier a couple days ago (nothing basketball related)

    247 lists a top 5 of Marquette, Iowa, CU, ASU, and Miami (FL).

    AZ predicted to CU as of today.

    OV's to Marquette (10/11) and Iowa (9/13) set up so far

    Miller doesn't seem to have the best hops but I love his physicality and strength; I'm pretty sick of our teams getting pushed around down low.

    Miami will be taking quite a step back this year. I highly respect Larranaga, but he's no spring chicken.

    I don't know if the coaches are prioritizing Welsh or Miller at the top of their board. Maybe whomever commits first gets the spot. But my personal preference is Miller. As much as I'd love to beat UCLA for a 7 footer in their own backyard, I think we need a banger on our roster. And I also think there's a lot of value to bringing in the post player our star PG recruit is tight with.

    247 also says he is taking an OV to CU, along with the rest of his Final 5
