Overall

Miller was impressive in ACC Tournament play, collecting a number of hits and a home run while displaying excellent pitch recognition and plate discipline. This season Miller led the Tar Heels in batting average while walking more than he struck out. Miller makes center field look easy, taking good routes to the ball and controlling his body through difficult catches look easy. He has plenty of speed, and it plays on the base paths and in the field.

The biggest red flag on Miller's profile is his lack of raw power. He’ll likely hit for below-average power at the next level, with more doubles and triples driving his slugging percentage than homers. The hit tool and defense will have to carry him through the minor leagues.
