Quincy Miller: Diary No. 3

In case you missed it, Quincy’s ’bout to be a Bear.

So you probably already know I made my college choice: I’m going to Baylor, and I’m feeling real good about it. Honestly, it was a pretty easy decision. Once I made up my mind, I just knew where I wanted to go. If you want the details about my decision, check out my Basketball Diary in the new issue of SLAM — I wrote all about it in there.

We did the announcement on ESPNU, and of course, I got a lot of feedback on Twitter — I probably got like 500 messages in the first five minutes. It’s been all good from Baylor fans, of course, but honestly, even fans of the schools I didn’t chose have been cool. Duke fans were really, really classy, and I respect them a lot. I was actually supposed to go down there for Midnight Madness, but once I knew where I wanted to go, I just thought I shouldn’t waste my time or theirs. And Kentucky fans were really classy, too.

Of course, there were some haters. I got some that were like, “How much is Baylor paying you?” and crazy stuff like that. I can tell you Baylor isn’t paying me a thing. I just feel like I’m not a follower, I’m a leader, and I’m motivated to go in there and make my own legacy, play for a great coach and a great program. I’m just excited to be part of Baylor hoops.

Anyway, this is a quick one, just to let you know what’s up. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks to let you know how my Westchester team is doing this season. Happy Thanksgiving!


Don’t forget: You can keep up with Q on Twitter, and check out all his online diaries here.

    Actually, I don’t love Baylor. But Q and Ryan do such a good job with this—even moreso in the magazine—that I can’t help but root for him to do great there…

    Good stuff Q. Good choice to play for the Baylor Bears and play alongside your friend Deuce Bello.
    Keep on staying humble and hungry because God loves you more than you could ever imagine. Takes classy to know classy and I tip my hat off to ya young fella. Keep on walking with our Lord and he will make your paths straight honing your leadership skills.

    SLAMonline readers know for a fact that Kentucky fans aren’t that classy fro the P*trick P*tterson incident.
