K.C. Ross-Miller transfers to Auburn, immediately eligible to play

Former New Mexico state guard K.C. Ross-Miller is now an Auburn Tiger. As solid as that news is for the Tigers, he also happens to be immediately eligible to put on a pair of sneakers, an Auburn jersey, and attempt to help them find a place within the pecking order of SEC hoops.

The 6’1″ guard averaged 8.3 points, 2.2 boards and 3.5 assists per outing  this past season for New Mexico State. So he is certainly more than just another random, ho-hum transfer. He will, however, need to overcome a little incident from last season.

You might not be that familiar with  K.C. Ross-Miller the basketball player, though. You are likely more aware of  K.C. Ross-Miller inciter of brawls.

That incident led to a two-game suspension by the WAC, but New Mexico State let that penalty ride out until the end of the season.

K.C. Ross-Miller didn’t even travel with New Mexico State when they made the NCAA Tournament. So, yeah. He didn’t exactly leave that program on the best of terms.

Maybe a new start, with a new program, and the likelihood of fans rushing the court at a minimum, Ross-Miller can get back to only playing basketball and not being just known as that guy in that video with those kids.
