According to Eric Bossi and Matt Howe of 247Sports, UK is among the list of potential destinations for Illinois transfer Adam Miller, a former four-star prospect in the class of 2020. “DePaul, Kentucky, Michigan and several others have been tossed around as possible destinations," 247Sports reported, "but he’s another who has been pretty quiet since deciding to transfer." To add fuel to the fire, former Indiana player A.J. Guyton sent out a tweet Saturday morning indicating that Kentucky may be a serious contender in Miller's recruitment. "Adam Miller to Kentucky, hmmm that's interesting!" he said in the since-deleted tweet. "Good luck young fella!"

Miller is considered the No. 7 available transfer option by 247Sports, with KSR's own Aaron Torres listing the 6-foot-3 guard as the No. 4 available target in his latest transfer rankings.

Out of high school, Miller was listed as the No. 33 overall prospect in the 2020 247Sports Composite Rankings, choosing the Fighting Illini over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Kansas and Louisville, among others. As a freshman, Miller averaged 8.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 25.5 minutes per contest, shooting 34% from three on 4.9 attempts from deep per game. Playing for Illinois, a one-seed in the 2021 NCAA Tournament and a top-five team throughout the season, the true freshman had 13 double-digit scoring performances. His biggest outings came in a 28-point performance against North Carolina A&T in his college debut, an 18-point performance against Nebraska, and 14-point outings against Minnesota, Northwestern and No. 21 Ohio State. Kentucky is in desperate need of adding guard help going into the 2021-22 season, and with Miller finding so much early success for one of the top teams in college basketball last year, it's hard to argue against the fit.
