Shareef Miller, a hard-charging junior defensive end and rising Division I recruit, has transferred from Frankford to Public League rival George Washington.
Washington coach Rob Cohen confirmed that Miller, who has about 20 scholarship offers, registered at the school Friday and will begin classes at Washington on Monday.
According to Cohen, the reason for Miller's transfer was a change in address, with him and his family now living near Grant Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard in the Northeast. "He lives in the neighborhood," Cohen said. "He's about 10 minutes away from Washington."
Miller helped Frankford go 8-4 and claim the Public League Class AAAA championship last season. The Pioneers were nipped by eventual state champion St. Joseph's Prep, 10-7, in the District 12 final.
