Mercy Miller, son of rapper and producer Master P, announced on Instagram on Monday that he has committed to play basketball at the University of Houston.

Miller is heading into his sophomore season at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis. Though 247Sports doesn't yet have composite rankings for the class of 2024, Miller had already earned scholarship offers from Houston, Minnesota and Hampton.

Master P also discussed the commitment on Instagram:

"My son [Mercy] has already won a High School State Championship as a Freshman. For the future, he's focused on winning a College Championship where all the great legends came from like Elvin Hayes, Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler. And that's why he decided to make an early commitment to the University of Houston."

The 6'4" combo guard took an unofficial visit to Houston last week, according to Brandon Jenkins of 247Sports.

Miller's father has high expectations for the emerging talent. 

"In the state championship game at only 15 years old he had 15 points in that game, and he’s the No. 1 player in Minnesota so he’s just getting better and better," he told 247Sports.

Last season, Miller played alongside Chet Holmgren, the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2021 class. Jalen Suggs, the No. 5 pick in the 2021 NBA draft, also went to Minnehaha before starring at Gonzaga.

Master P, who was born Percy Miller, played some NBA Summer League and has appeared in the All-Star Celebrity Game. Mercy's older brother Romeo spent two years at USC but left and started his own music career.
