If Jim Christian and the new Eagles basketball coaching staff didn't have their work cut out for themselves before, the rebuilding job on the recruiting trail just got that much more difficult. New Hampton Prep (N.H.) power forward Jeremy Miller, the lone commit in either of the next two recruiting classes, has decided to reopen his commitment, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Miller, a 6-foot-9, 215 pound power forward, originally committed to Steve Donahue and the Eagles following the program's upset of then top-ranked and undefeated Syracuse. At the time, he chose Boston College over claimed offers from Connecticut, Florida State, Maryland and Providence.
A four-star recruit per both Rivals and ESPN and a three-star per Scout and 247, Miller is rated as the 125th best recruit in the 2015 class by Rivals. Jeremy was set to follow former New Hampton Prep star Olivier Hanlan to the Heights.
So it's back to square one for Christian and the Eagles coaching staff, who will look to fill the next two classes with recruits to replace guys like Anderson, Rahon and now, Jeremy Miller.
