Vanden’s Miller 100% ready after knee injury

A year ago, Vanden basketball star Agjanti Miller dealt with adversity.

Miller dislocated his knee, ending his season. During that time, he couldn’t play AAU basketball or finish out his high school campaign with all of his teammates.

And Miller’s family also dealt with tragedy when he hurt his knee, as his aunt passed away – someone who motivates Miller every single time he’s out there.

“I do it for her every day,” Miller said.

But, despite the challenging times Miller has endured, he is ready for his final ride at Vanden before he heads off to college.

During this offseason alone, Miller has made significant strides during what has already been a successful high school career so far – one that includes a 20-9 record his sophomore year and a quarterfinals appearance in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division III playoffs, followed by the Monticello Empire League title and a Sac-Joaquin Section Division III crown as a junior.

“This offseason I’ve seen myself grow a lot,” Miller said. “I dislocated my knee a year ago, so I’m 100% now. Ball handling, shooting, getting my shot consistent.”

At the various camps, showcases and tournaments Miller has attended, including at the Exposure Academy Boys Basketball Showcase in Hayward over Labor Day weekend last month, Miller’s stock has only grown.

When he was out with the knee injury, it was difficult for recruiters to know who he was, but the recruiting process has heated up for him over these past few months.

“The recruiting process is going smooth,” Miller said. “I’ve been going to camps, showcases, tournaments. Starting to get a lot more recruiters.”

For his final high school campaign, Miller is eyeing history.

He’s already been a part of a league championship team. He’s been a part of section championship team. He’s made it to the California Interscholastic Federation Division I regional quarterfinals.

Now, he wants to bring a state title to Vanden.

“Last year we won section championships and we fell short a game to state, so this year I want to win sections of course and go to state and win it,” Miller said. “We haven’t won a state ever at my high school.”
