LAFAYETTE (KATC) – Louisiana forward Justin Miller will not return for his senior season.

The 6-foot-6-inch stretch-forward announced on Twitter Wednesday of his decision to leave saying quote: “First off, I would like to thank everyone at the University of Louisiana, and the city of Lafayette for welcoming me with open arms 3 years ago. I made friendships that will last the rest of my life and for that I am grateful. With this being said I will be leaving the program and will exploring other options that God will put in front of me. Thank you to all the people that support and believe in my decision.”

In three years with the Cajuns Miller developed into a streaky outside-shooter hitting 30-percent of his three-point attempts. Miller shot nearly 30-percent of his shots from outside in his Cajuns career.

His best year came as a freshman where Miller started 31 games, averaged 11 points-per-game and shot a career high 48 percent from the field, and 36 percent from three.

Miller did not specify whether he’d seek a transfer.
