DURHAM, N.C. – Head coach Chris Pollard and the Duke baseball program are excited to announce the addition of shortstop Max Miller to the 2015 roster. A native of Ponte Vedra, Fla., Miller is set to join the Blue Devils this fall.
“Max Miller is a terrific defensive infielder, who is also a game-changing player offensively with his base-stealing capabilities,” said Pollard. “He led his high school team to a state championship as a junior and played on one of the most competitive summer league teams in the country, the Florida Burn. Max is a tremendous competitor who will make our team better in a number of different ways.”
A product of Ponte Vedra High School, Miller led the Sharks to the 2013 Class 5A State Championship a year ago before guiding the team to the Regional Semifinals in 2014. A first team all-county and second team all-district pick, Miller also earned 2014 Perfect Game Florida Region Honorable Mention accolades as well as 2013 Perfect Game Underclass Honorable Mention distinction.
On defense, Miller boasts soft hands, a steady accurate arm and good lateral agility. His quick hands at the plate and line drive swing give him the potential to be explosive in his collegiate career.
Duke adds 14 incoming freshmen this fall. GoDuke.com will release each of the Blue Devils’ 2014 signing class members, so check back for more information on all the future Duke players.
