Former Pepperdine G Austin Mills Transfers To Baylor


Former Pepperdine guard Austin Mills announced throughout social media that he would be transferring to Baylor University.

Mills commits to Baylor after taking two visits; the first to Baylor on June 23rd and the second to Oregon State on June 26th. His visit to Baylor went well enough for him to commit just a week later.

While at Pepperdine, Mills was a valuable piece off the bench for Marty Wilson and the Waves. Mills averaged 2.4 points in his two seasons at Pepperdine, playing 9.8 minutes per game. Mills was a backup at the point guard spot, providing relief for Jeremy Major on occasion. His best statistical game of the season was a 10 point outing against Saint Mary’s in only 14 minutes of action.

Mills was a walk-on at Pepperdine, and will be entering the same situation with Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears. However, Mills was told by the coaching staff that he may earn a scholarship if everything works out by the beginning of the season.

Baylor will add some nice depth with the 6-foot-0, 175 pound Mills, especially at the guard position. Mills will be eligible at the beginning of the 2014-2015 season and will be ready to play right away for the Bears, presumably backing up Kenny Cherry and JuCo transfer Lester Medford at the point guard spot.
