Jim Larranaga and his staff nabbed a huge recruit this week as four-star, 6’11” center prospect Rodney Miller has committed to the Miami Hurricanes, according to Rob Harrington of Scout.com. The 2016 prospect is described as a long-term project by Harrington, as Miller is still extremely raw, while showing flashes of what kind of player he can potentially be in the ACC down the road. Miller also considered Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Seton Hall throughout his recruitment.

6’6″ guard Rashad Muhammad, brother of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Shabazz Muhammad, will transfer from San Jose State to Miami, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com. Muhammad is a scoring guard, who led the Spartans in points per game in each of the last two seasons. As a freshman, he averaged 13.2 points per contest before averaging 13.9 points per game last season. He will sit out the 2015-2016 season per NCAA transfer rules, and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining when he returns for the 2016-2017 campaign.
