Master P' Son Hercy Miller Chooses to Attend an HBCU (Tennessee State University) to Play Basketball

Master P
Posted By: Will Moss on March 28, 2021

Hercy Miller, the son of hip-hop mogul Percy “Master P” Miller, committed Friday to play basketball at Tennessee State after saying he also received offers from Vanderbilt, LSU, UCLA, USC, Missouri, South Carolina, Arizona, Georgetown and several other larger schools.

Miller, a 6-foot-3 senior guard at Minnehaha (Minnesota) Academy, announced his decision at his school.

He had narrowed his final decision to Vanderbilt or TSU and chose the Tigers because wanted to be a part of a movement across the nation where several high-profile high school athletes are choosing HBCUs over bigger schools.

"I want to be a leader and a dream of mine and a goal of mine is to change the narrative," Miller said. "I want to show people you don't have to go to one of these big schools, Power Five conference schools, just to be great.



There are a lot of great people who came out of HBCUs or mid-major schools. I want to be the next one."

Miller mentioned that Oprah Winfrey graduated from TSU, and Rob Covington, who is in his eighth NBA season currently playing for Portland, played for the Tigers.

He also pointed out that Ja Morant, now with the Memphis Grizzlies, played at Murray State, which is in the Ohio Valley Conference along with TSU.

Miller's brother Romeo played two seasons at USC and Master P said the family spent a lot of time in Nashville over the years, first in music and then during his sons' AAU basketball careers.

Master P said the decision was left solely up to Hercy.

"He had a lot of big schools on the table — Vanderbilt, LSU, USC, UCLA — and I said, 'Son, this is all your decision; you've got to live with whatever you do," Master P said.
