The University of Minnesota Crookston men’s basketball program announced the signing of Reed Miller (G/F, 6-6 205, Appleton, Wis./Kimberly H.S.) to a National Letter of Intent. Miller is the third signee for the Golden Eagles. He joins Quintin Winterfeldt (G, 6-4 195, Waupun, Wis./Waupun H.S.) and Tyrese Shines (G, 6-3 190, La Grange, Ill./Lyons Township H.S.).
“I am very excited to welcome Reed Miller to our basketball family,” said Head Coach Dan Weisse. “Reed fits what we are looking for in a player on the floor and off. He can step out on the perimeter and shoot, and also is a very good passer. In addition, Reed is also improving his ability to put the ball on the floor and drive. He has a high basketball IQ, and has the ability to guard multiple positions. Reed is also just a great person that will benefit our program and our university, as a whole. I am excited to coach Reed for the next four years.”
