K.C. Ross-Miller Transferring, Considering Louisville


Former University of Kentucky recruit K.C. Ross-Miller is planning to transfer from New Orleans and is considering a handful of schools, including Louisville.

Ross-Miller averaged 10.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game during one semester at New Orleans. He also shot 9-18 (50%) from long range.

New Orleans is an NCAA Division I Independent program which is in an interesting situation. The NCAA allowed players to compete at New Orleans last season and then transfer to new schools without penalty - in other words, Ross-Miller is eligible to play in 2011-12.

Here is an excerpt of Ross-Miller's comments from Erin Ashley at BoxofMess.com:

Recently, University of New Orleans’ Freshman KC Ross-Miller spoke to me about leaving the University in order to attend another school, ” I am about to transfer colleges.” Right now, he does not know what college he will ultimately end up at, but Ross-Miller has a list of top contenders that he will evaluate during his transferring process. “I haven’t decided yet but my schools are Purdue, Louisville, UNT, Detroit, Kansas State.” His stay at the University of New Orleans was more of an insurance policy rather than an act of permanence ” I went to UNO because they have a rule where I could go there for one semester and then be eligible to play anywhere without having to sit out, except in the SEC.” Now that the semester is over, Ross-Miller can now focus on looking for the best fitting program, ” I’m looking for a program where I can come and start, have a good coach, and good academics. I’m looking for the best school that needs me the most.” Hopefully this young man will be able to find the school of his dreams!
