Miller struggled during the camp and averaged less than 2 points per game while being surrounded by future NBA players like O. J. Mayo, Derrick Rose, and Kevin Love.
The veteran leader of the ABCD Camp, Sonny Vaccaro, explains that he invited Miller to the 2006 camp “primarily as a favor to Percy Miller (Romeo’s father Master P), whom he knew from the club basketball circuit.” Along with that, Vaccaro added, “If you’re looking for the profile of an athlete who plays basketball at USC, he’s not it.”

He only spent two seasons with the Trojans before his departure following the 2009–10 campaign.
