Basketball Career

Romeo was invited in the Summer of 2010 to the Reebok-sponsored ABCD Camp, considered the premier basketball camp in the United States. The Teaneck, New Jersey-based ABCD Camp is an invitation-only basketball showcase previously attended by high-profile players including Kobe Bryant, Stephon Marbury, Tracy McGrady, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Surrounded by future NBA players such as O. J. Mayo, Derrick Rose, and Kevin Love, Miller looked out of place and averaged less than 2.6 points a game throughout the camp. The Wall Street Journal made an article on March 8, entitled "A Hot Prospect," cites Sonny Vaccaro, the longtime director of the ABCD Camp, as explaining, "he invited Romeo Miller to the 2006 camp, primarily as a favor to Percy Miller, whom he knew from the club basketball circuit." In the article, Vaccaro indicated, "If you're looking for the profile of an athlete who plays basketball at USC, he's not it."[2]

On April 13, 2007, Miller verbally committed to the University of Southern California (USC) and signed a letter of intent on November 19, 2007. Miller, a 5'11" point guard at Beverly Hills High School, a four year starter averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists per game during the 2006-2007 high school season.[3]

According to The Wall Street Journal, it appears the decision to grant Miller a full scholarship at USC was largely driven by his relationship with friend and teammate Demar DeRozan, the 6-foot-6 All-American forward who was rated as the number five prospect in the country on Scout.com. The Wall Street Journal reported Coach Tim Floyd as saying, "Last April...Percy Miller called while driving both players from a tournament in Fayetteville, Ark...Percy Miller said 'Demar and Romeo are ready to make their decision, and would you like to have them both on scholarship?'...'I said absolutely.'"[2] Miller and DeRozan began playing in the 2008-2009 season.

Acting career

Miller started his acting career with the 2003 film Honey. His character was Benny, a young boy looking for a break. In this movie, he co-starred with Jessica Alba, Mekhi Phifer and Zachary Isaiah Williams.[4] He also made a cameo appearance in Max Keeble's Big Move as himself in 2001.[5] Also in 2003, he starred in his own TV show called Romeo! on Nickelodeon, and voiced himself on an episode of the animated series Static Shock.[6] He co-starred with his dad in a movie called Uncle P in 2005.[citation needed] He also starred in another movie with Zachary Isaiah Williams, God's Gift, which came out in 2006. Recently, he made a cameo appearance, as himself, in Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide as a rapping coach for the teachers. Then in 2007 he starred in film Crush on U as himself, Rome, alongside Forrest Lipton and Zachary Isaiah Williams who played the young Rome, Lil Romey and had also previously starred with Romeo in Honey and Nickelodeon's Romeo! is related to the singers Cymphonique Miller and Veno Miller.
