Happy Birthday Brandon Miller!
Brandon Miller turned 19 today in the midst of a breakout freshman campaign.
The Antioch, TN native came into the season with large levels of hype, being named to the John R. Wooden Award Watch List and the Naismith Award Watch List, both of which recognize some the best players in the nation.
The forward has certainly lived up to those expectations through four games so far this season, averaging 20 points and nine rebounds a game. Miller is also currently the leading scorer in the nation amongst freshmen. The birthday boy has also been a highlight reel this season, with his deep three's and athletic dunks. His craziest play this season though, was an incredible put back dunk in the Tide's 104-62 win over Jacksonville State. He was also named the SEC Freshman of the week after posting a 23.5/3/8 statistic line over two games last week.
We wish Brandon Miller a happy birthday, an amazing day, and to keep balling for the Tide this year!
