They can look in the mirror at themselves with a positive goal in mind for their bright future knowing that going to college can make a big difference in their lives.” College Boyys clothing style is classy, cool, and urban with a message: "It's actually cool to be smart."

Basketball Career[]

Romeo was invited, in the summer of 2006, to the Reebok-sponsored ABCD Camp, which is considered the premier basketball camp in the United States. The Teaneck, New Jersey-based ABCD Camp is an invitation-only basketball showcase previously attended by high-profile players including Kobe Bryant, Stephon Marbury, Tracy McGrady, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Surrounded by future NBA players such as O. J. Mayo, Derrick Rose, and Kevin Love, Miller averaged less than two points a game throughout the camp. In the 8 March issue of the The Wall Street Journal, Sonny Vaccaro, the longtime director of the ABCD Camp, explained that "he invited Romeo Miller to the 2006 camp, primarily as a favor to Percy Miller, whom he knew from the club basketball circuit." In the article, Vaccaro indicated, "If you're looking for the profile of an athlete who plays basketball at USC, he's not it."

On 13 April 2007, Miller verbally committed to the University of Southern California (USC) and signed a letter of intent 19 November 2007.

Miller, a 5'11" point guard, played one year at Windward High School before he transferred and became a three-year starter at Beverly Hills High School. As a junior, during the 2005–2006 high school season, he averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists per game. As a senior, during the 2006–2007 high school season, he averaged 8.6 points and 9.0 assists per game.

According to The Wall Street Journal, it appears the decision to grant Miller a full scholarship at USC was largely driven by his relationship with friend and teammate DeMar DeRozan, the 6-foot-6 All-American forward who was rated as the number five prospect in the country on Scout.com. The Wall Street Journal reported Coach Tim Floyd as saying, "Last April...Percy Miller called while driving both players from a tournament in Fayetteville, Ark...Percy Miller said 'Demar and Romeo are ready to make their decision, and would you like to have them both on scholarship?'...'I said absolutely.'" Miller and DeRozan began playing in the 2008–2009 season.
