After transferring from LSU to ASU in April, Adam Miller is one of several players expected to try to get a waiver to gain immediate eligibility for the 2023-24 season, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

Miller, who will be a junior in the fall, started his career at Illinois in 2020, and he transferred to LSU the following year, but tore his ACL before the season started and took a redshirt year. He then entered the portal, but opted out to play last season for the Tigers. He announced his transfer to ASU on April 17.

After gaining a reputation for being someone who is always in the portal, Miller tweeted it would be his last time in it after his committing to Arizona State.

The NCAA is cracking down on two-time undergraduate transfers starting in the 2023-24 season, as they are forcing players to get waivers to be eligible immediately.

For two-time transfers, the new rules state that: “An undergraduate transfer waiver will only be considered for student-athletes who transfer: (1) For reasons related to the student-athlete’s physical or mental health and well-being; (2) Due to exigent circumstances outside the student-athlete’s control (e.g., physical or sexual assault or discrimination based on a protected class); or (3) Assertions involving diagnosed education impacting disabilities.”

Miller, listed at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, averaged 11.5 points per game, 2.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists on 33.6% shooting in 33 starts for the Tigers last season. He is expected to take over DJ Horne’s spot in the starting lineup if he is eligible for next season.
