Shaquanda Miller-McCray committed to Georgia State last year after averaging nine and eight blocks a game as a junior and senior at Crestwood High School in Sumter, South Carolina. The Class of 2016 No. 43 nationally ranked center had career highs against Elon on Dec. 22 with seven points and six rebounds in the first half. Miller-McCray gave The Signal insight on the average day for a freshman student-athlete on campus.
