Berkeley Carroll’s ace pitcher Ian Miller, who helped to lead the team to an undefeated season last year, has verbally committed to Harvard University, according to John Torenli of the Brooklyn Eagle.

“It’s great,” Miller told the Eagle on Tuesday morning of his decision to join the Crimson. “Coming off of a long junior year, at the end of the road, it’s great to get the weight off my back. Everything came together with the baseball and academics [at Harvard].”

Miller still had visits set up at Davidson and Holy Cross as well as strong interest from Princeton, Yale, and Dartmouth, but decided to go with Harvard over them all.

“I wanted to get to a place with very high-level baseball and high-level academics that I could achieve,” he said. “At Harvard they have a great budding program with great coaching. I think that’s the best fit for me.”
