This decision is a reversal from Miller's earlier statement on April 10 that he would return to Baylor in the coming season. He is expected to hire Dwon Clifton as his agent in preparation for entering the draft. Miller was the co-Big 12 Player of the Year and averaged 10.6 points per game in 2011-12.
Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports reports that the decision has been confirmed by Baylor men's head coach Scott Drew. According to Drew, Miller decided to enter the draft because he felt turning pro would be the best decision for him and for his family.
