Prospect Update: Dylan Miller (2019)


Posted On: 09/19/18 9:37 AM

It was a big spring and summer for Mason City guard Dylan Miller.

A 6-foot-3 senior, Miller was turning heads while playing with Southeast Minnesota Elite during his 17U season. And was able to improve greatly on his already existing skill-set.

“Really, I was focused more on being more consistent shooting-wise. And then working on other aspects of the game, especially without the ball, like moving without the ball. And I’ve been working on attacking the basket as well,” said Miller.

The plan was to play with North Iowa Fire this past grassroots season, but there was a lack of numbers. So he and Mason City teammate Jarvorius Toney decided to play with Southeast Minnesota Lightning.

“We went up there for a practice to see if we’d like it, and all of the guys were great guys and great players too. So, we just continued to do that and they were good about working around my baseball schedule,” said Miller.

“We made it work, and I had a great summer and a great experience with those guys. And I met some people I’ll probably keep on touch with for a really long time.”

Miller’s focus now shifts his focus to his senior season at Mason City. He enjoyed a breakout season last year, and will look to build upon that this winter.

“Last year I was a leader, but as a senior I need to step it up one more notch,” he said.

Also a standout on the diamond, Miller says he’s not yet decided what he’ll pursue at the net level between baseball and basketball.

He’s visited some schools for hoops visits, Northwestern and Briar Cliff were a couple he mentioned. And says the same type schools are pursuing him for baseball.

Miller says he’s thought about playing both in college.

“I haven’t decided, I might try and do both, but at the same time, I don’t know if I want to do that with school and everything,” he said. “I’ll just have to see how it works, and what comes to me and feels best.”
