OXFORD, Miss. (Ole Miss Athletics/WTVA) - For the past week, Ole Miss men's basketball coach Kermit Davis' hard work on the recruiting trail has paid off, and it continued with a major announcement Thursday morning. Franco Miller Jr., a guard from Freeport, Bahamas, became the latest future Rebel by signing his national letter of intent to join the incoming 2018 class.

"We welcome Franco and his wonderful family to Ole Miss," Davis said. "Franco is a multi-talented guard that is a high-level scorer from a great basketball pedigree. He is really mature and will already have an SEC body when he arrives on campus as a freshman. Franco had an outstanding year at Crestwood that helped him build on the success he achieved at Tabernacle Baptist Academy. He was very fortunate to have been coached at a really high level at both places throughout his entire playing career."

Last season, Miller traveled north to play at Crestwood Preparatory College in Toronto, Canada. While there, he averaged 25.8 points per game, 6.0 rebounds per game, 5.2 assists per game and 3.3 steals per game. The 6-2 guard broke the 40-point threshold twice throughout the year, tallying a game-high 42 points versus Thetford Academy and scoring 40 points against the Toronto Basketball Club. While north of the border, Miller earned first team All-Canada NPA honors, first team All-CISAA accolades and Universal Hoops First Team All-Canada recognition. His play also earned him a spot in the prestigious Allen Iverson Roundball Classic as well as the Signature All-Canadian Showcase.

Prior to moving to Canada, Miller was a standout in his native country of The Bahamas. He led Tabernacle Baptist Academy to a runner-up finish in the Bahamas National High Schools Basketball Championships. He also helped his team secure a Grand Bahama Secondary Schools Sports Association (GBSSSA) title. At the Hugh Campbell Basketball Classic, Miller scored 27 of his team's 58 points in the championship game en route to earning tournament MVP honors. Tabernacle Baptist Academy rallied behind Miller to win the 34th annual Hugh Campbell Basketball Classic.
