McMillan Leaving State
The Sun Devils are red hot since Herb Sendek took over with the latest piece of good news coming when Jamelle McMillan committed to Arizona State after a weekend visit. The 6-foot-2 McMillan, who is the son of NBA coach and former player Nate McMillan, chose the Sun Devils over Sendek's former employer – N.C. State. ``I've known these guys forever and they've been recruiting me as hard as anyone in the world," McMillan said. "They had two or three guys at every game." ``They've been honest and are guys you can trust," McMillan added of the staff. "They are down to earth, have fun and are a bunch of clowns." McMillan is a huge get for Sendek & Co. because of his ability to run a team and defend. McMillan was slated to take official visits to N.C. State and Clemson, but he didn't feel the need to continue the recruiting process. ``Coach Sendek even busted out a new pair of Nike's for me," McMillan joked. "That supposedly never happens." ``I had a great visit and met with a lot of people while I was there," he added. "This is exciting. James Harden committed, Eric Boateng is there and it's a great situation for me." McMillan said that he had only heard from new N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe once in the past month – a text message since he returned from Las Vegas at the end of July. ``I saw Sidney Lowe a couple of times in July, but I haven't talked to him in a month," McMillan said. ``I just felt that Arizona State was the best situation for me," he added. "Coach Sendek is expecting me to come right in and hit the floor. It's a situation where they are building and reconstructing something and I want to be a part of that."
