Master P is already predicting his hoops star son, Mercy Miller, is gonna be a baller at the University of Houston — telling TMZ Sports, he could be just as great as Hakeem Olajuwon!
And, he’s only 15 years old … playing guard at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis but made an early commitment to play college ball for the Houston Cougars.
“His favorite teams was University of Houston and Duke,” P tell us, “That was his final choices and to be able to do that as a young kid right now … he’s blessed.”
“He was able to win a high school state championship last year as a freshman and now to know what college you’re going to, it’s just gonna bring all the pieces to the puzzle together.”
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
P expects Mercy to bring that winning spirit to Houston — telling us his son could end up being one of the greatest to ever wear a Cougar jersey.
“A lot of the greats went to University of Houston,” P says.
“Clyde the Glyde, Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon and now you got Mercy Miller — could be on that same wall.”
That’s some big names to follow … but, the rapper doesn’t want his son to just be great at ball — he wants him to excel in school.
“He’s an A-student. That’s what I’m more proud of and education is so important and he’ll be able to get that.”
“It’s a great place for education at the University of Houston.”
Mercy’s also gonna be able to get some endorsement deals due to the NIL rules … and his big brother Hercy Miller — who will play for the Tennessee State basketball team this year — just signed a $2M deal.
“A lot of brands are probably gonna start coming at him now knowing this is where he gon’ be at.”
