Caleb Mills commits to Houston Cougars

Mills is Coogs first Class of 2019 commitment

August 5, 2018

Earlier Sunday morning, Caleb Mills, 6'3", guard, from Asheville Christian Academy, in North Carolina, announced his commitment to Head Coach Kelvin Sampson and the Houston Cougars men's basketball program.

"I just committed to Houston," said Mills. "Most schools recruiting me were making me promises, but Houston had a real plan for me. They had a plan, and I could tell it was the right school for me."

Brian Snow of 247.Sports writes Mills skills include 'solid shot making, good feel for the game, and the ability to create his own shot'. Snow believes 'Mills is someone who should be able to make a major impact in the American Conference.'

Mills plays his grassroots ball for PSB Elite which is the 'elite team arm of @ProSkillsBball Charlotte, NC. 9th-11th grade boys teams. 50+ alumni playing college bball."

Jeff Bendel of Phenom Hoops writes a detailed article which states Mills went from 2 college scholarship offers in 2016 (from Lipscomb and Winthrop); to six more scholarship offers in 2017: Appalachian State, Liberty, Western Carolina, High Point, George Mason, and College of Charleston; to 25 more scholarship offers beginning in May of 2018.Among those schools are Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Harvard, Houston, Kansas State, Marquette, Mississippi State, Old Dominion, Pittsburgh, Providence, Saint Louis, Tennessee, VCU, Wake Forest, and Xavier.

More from Bendel's article: 'In terms of fit and overall style, Houston should be a quality choice for the combo-guard, especially alongside a similar guy in Hinton. Mills is an extremely smooth, fluid scorer with ball-handling or spot-up capabilities. His frame/length have always been quite intriguing, but he can still become more physically imposing and start controlling action defensively.'
