Kevin Ollie got his man Saturday afternoon.

Cornell transfer Shonn Miller committed to UConn during a visit to Storrs, according to multiple reports.

Miller, a 6-foot-7-inch forward from Euclid, Ohio, graduated from Cornell and has one year of eligibility remaining. He will be eligible to play immediately.

Cornell relied heavily on Miller in 2014-15. He was second in the Ivy League with averages of 16.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, and fourth in the conference with 1.8 blocks per game for the Big Red. Miller was sixth in the nation in defensive rebound percentage at 28.2 percent, according to Ken Pomeroy.

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Miller met with UConn, Illinois, Boston College and Michigan. Other schools were also involved.

With Miller committed, UConn now has two scholarships open for next season. Kevin Ollie said the other day that UConn has a couple recruits "on the brink," so it looks like dominos have started to fall.

Miller is a gifted scorer and talented around the rim. Check out some of his highlights from Cornell below:
