Whenever a player from something called Cowley County Community College signs a letter of intent, the world most immediately stops. Okay, okay, I am only (slightly) kidding. Still, the Creighton BlueJays have announced that former CCCC (?) star, James Milliken, has signed his letter of intent and plans to join the program for the upcoming season.
Here is all the dirt I can dig up on Milliken through the wonderful wormhole that is the worldwide-interweb. According to everything I can find out about, the 6’2″ guard can put points up in bunches in a variety of different ways. In high school, Milliken averaged almost 30 points per game before taking his abilities to Cowley County Community College.
While with CCCC (please, let that be the way they shorten their school name), the guard continued in his scoring ways. As a freshman, Milliken averaged over 17 points per outing and was awarded several awards for his efforts. His sophomore year was much of the same as he scored 18.4 points per game while shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range.
As alluded to earlier, Milliken will be joining the program with two years of eligibility left. The coaching staff must be excited to land a player who can score in multiple ways, but for the immediate future can potentially help spread the floor for Doug McDermott.
According to several recruiting websites, Milliken was ranked anywhere from the 31st to 40th best junior college prospect in the nation. Regardless of his rank, it seems like he is a good fit for Creighton.
