Caleb Mills, veteran Florida State transfer, receiving interest from several SEC programs
Caleb Mills is heading elsewhere for his final season of college basketball. The former Florida State and Houston transfer announced he would be entering the portal on March 30 after a dismal 9-23 season in Tallahassee.
According to CBS’ Jon Rothstein, Mills has received initial interest from at least 4 SEC programs: South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. Interestingly, he’s also heard from Houston about a potential reunion with the Cougars.
It’s important to note that this does not mean each school on the following list has necessarily offered Mills a spot on next year’s roster, but it does signify they are interested in having the conversation. It’s very likely that Mills will have official visits or in-home visits with one of these schools in the coming days/weeks.

Mills was Florida State’s top player from last season, averaging 13 points per game with 3 rebounds and assists per game on 41% shooting. It’s worth noting that last year was his worst year in terms of efficiency in the past 3 seasons, though that could have to do with the Seminoles’ overall struggle to score.
Defensively though, Mills is a pest. He averages 1.3 steals per game, closer to 1.5 across his career.
