DAYTON -- Suspended University of Dayton Flyers forward Sam Miller transferred from UD to the College of Charleston on Thursday, the school announced in a press release.

Miller played two seasons for the Flyers, appearing in 53 games where he averaged 3,9 points, 2.3 blocks and 1.8 rebounds per game.

Miller was suspended for one semester in August following an incident in the Greene County Jail. Miller was arrested in Beavercreek on July 30 for charges of Disorderly Conduct and Underage Offense/Prior.

Caddy’s Tap House security guard Greg King said Miller knocked drinks off a tray and shoved a waitress at the Beavercreek bar. When they tried to kick Miller out, he reportedly then tried to start a fight with them. Security held him down, until police arrived.

While he was in Greene County Jail, Miller was caught on camera getting into a fight with another inmate, bringing an additional charge of assault.

August 11th he was suspended from the team and UD announced Miller would not get his scholarship back for the 2017-18 season.

Miller was part of a recruiting class that included St. Henry grad Ryan Mikesell, who's redshirting after undergoing hip surgery, Wayne grad Xeyrius Williams and John Crosby.

The Flyers will have an open scholarship for 2018 with Miller's transfer.

"We are really excited to have Sam join our program," College of Charleston Head Coach Earl Grant said in a press release. "He is a young man that we watched and evaluated while he was in high school. We believe he will be a great addition to our program on the court and in the classroom."
