Alabama Crimson Tide forward Brandon Miller has announced that he has declared for the 2023 NBA Draft. He will forgo his remaining three years of college eligibility and enter the NBA. As a player, Miller has been fantastic and could be the top college player selected in the draft. The issue of the off-court issues that could potentially impact Miller’s draft status has come up. Miller provided a gun to his teammate earlier in the season that was later used in a murder. The police in Alabama have not and said they will not press charges against the Alabama forward.

This season with the Alabama Crimson Tide, Brandon Miller averaged 18.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 blocks, and 0.9 steals per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 43 percent and a three-point percentage of 38.4 percent. Miller showcased his talent in the regular season and led the Crimson Tide to the number one overall seed in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. While the Crimson Tide did not win a Championship, Miller proved his worth as an NBA prospect.
While Miller has been considered a lottery prospect since he entered college, he has climbed up the 2023 NBA Draft boards. He is now considered a lock to go top-three and has even made some ground on suspected top-two pick and G League Ignite star Scoot Henderson. His career in the NBA is about to begin once he is drafted.
