GT GUARD MILLER SUFFERING FROM CONCUSSION

According to Sports Illustrated, Georgia Tech point guard Moe Miller (seen here guarding FSU’s Toney Douglas) continues to suffer the effects of a concussion he suffered in a car wreck last month and may not be cleared to join the start of practice this week.

It is Miller's third concussion in less than a year.
Coach Paul Hewitt said Tuesday Miller struggled as he tried to work out on Monday.

"He came out of it just a little lightheaded, a little off-balance was the term he used," Hewitt said.

Hewitt says Miller was driving when he hit his head on a side window in the accident.

Miller, a junior from Memphis, has started 35 games the last two seasons. He suffered two concussions early last season and missed seven games after the second incident in which he also suffered a broken nose.

Hewitt said his Yellow Jackets overall are in good health as they prepare to open practice on Friday.

A highly rated recruiting class has boosted expectations for Georgia Tech, which finished only 12-19 last year. The class includes three freshmen: forward Derrick Favors, point guard Mfon Udofia and guard Glen Rice Jr.

The 6-foot-10 Favors was named the nation's top high school player by Parade magazine and was rated as the nation's top prospect by some recruiting services.

Hewitt returns forwards Gani Lawal and Zach Peacock and guard Iman Shumpert as returning starters.

Another guard, senior D'Andre Bell, also returns after missing last season. Bell has been cleared to play after he was diagnosed last year with spinal stenosis, a congenital condition.
