Master P’s Son Hercy Miller Leaving Tennessee State University To Play Basketball Elsewhere

The rap mogul called for increased funding for medical services at HBCUs after his son’s injury.

Hercy Miller, rap mogul Master P’s son, has ended his basketball career at Tennessee State University and entered the NCAA transfer portal, the Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported on Monday (Dec. 6).

According to the Nashville Post, Miller, a 6-foot-3 guard, had announced that he suffered a season-ending knee injury that he tried to play through despite the pain, vowing to “be back next year for the show.”

TMZ Sports reported that Master P said historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) need increased funding to provide the same level of medical services as the major collegiate basketball programs.

He added that his freshman son played only a few games, but other universities wanted to recruit him.

Miller committed to playing basketball at the Nashville-based HBCU instead of several other universities, including UCLA, Arizona and LSU, according to the Post.

“This is so big for the culture with my son going to an HBCU and going to Tennessee State,” Master P said. “This is going to change the narrative. This is about economic empowerment and teaching that and being able to make sure that these HBCU’s are in the spotlight. I think this is a movement. I think so many kids behind him will be coming to do this now — I’m talking about top athletes like Hercy.”

In July, Miller signed a $2 million deal with Web Apps American to be a brand ambassador for the technology company before playing his first college game, HBCU Gameday reported.
