Miller has not made a public comment on the case but his attorney, Dennis Lieberman, described him as “a good kid.”
“I ask people not to prejudge him simply based upon what they have seen perhaps on their computers or on videos,” said Lieberman. “It’s not the whole story, and I’m asking people to be respectful of our process.”
While the university released a statement Aug. 4 it essentially stated ‘there will be no comment at this time.’
Coach Grant has not been available to the media and there is no confirmation on Miller’s status on the team.
