JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (November 17, 2011) – The ETSU baseball program signed two-way standout Kameron Miller (Crestview, Fla.) to a National Letter of Intent to join the squad beginning in 2012-13, head coach Tony Skole announced on Thursday.
“We are very excited about this signing class and Kameron Miller was our first commitment this year,” commented Skole. “In landing a player of his caliber early in the process, it really gave our staff some momentum throughout the summer and fall recruiting periods. Coach Xan Barksdale and Coach Kyle Bunn are to be commended for their outstanding performance in our recruiting efforts. These guys were relentless during this process as we have had more commitments in this early period than ever before.
“Kameron comes to us from a great high school program at Crestview High School where he plays for Coach Tim Gillis. Kameron also played for the prestigious Marucci Elite this summer, which is considered one of the top summer programs in the entire country.”
Miller, a 6-foot-5 180-pound right-handed pitcher and infielder, will join the Buccaneer program after enjoying a career full of accolades at Crestview High School.
The three-year letterwinner under head coach Tim Gillis was named the Daily News All-Area Player of the Year last season as a junior, while leading his squad to the district title in 2011. As a junior, Miller hit .368 with three homeruns, 33 RBIs and 18 runs scored. On the mound, he struck out 56 in 61 innings pitched, while compiling a 6-2 record and a 2.18 ERA.
As a sophomore, Miller was named First-Team All-Area and was All-Area Honorable Mention as a freshman. Miller was also named a 2011 Underclass Honorable Mention by Perfect Game.
A three-year starter, Miller has compiled a .350 average, seven home runs, 24 doubles, two triples and 83 RBIs in his career. Miller has also been a force on the mound as he has earned a 10-3 career record with a 2.20 ERA and 80 strikeouts.
“Having talented players in our program that can both pitch and hit has become a great tradition at ETSU and Kameron will fall right in line with some of the outstanding two-way players we have had at ETSU in recent years,” added Skole. “Kameron is a very dynamic athlete. He will be able to play both corner infield positions and I believe the sky is the limit for him on the mound. He reminds our coaching staff of Jered Weaver of the Anaheim Angels. Kameron is a great young man and his future is very bright. He will have an immediate impact on our program.”
