Hercy Miller, the son of hip-hop artist and former pro basketball player Master P, signed a $2 million endorsement deal with Web Apps America on Friday, according to TMZ Sports.
“It’s incredible,” Master P told TMZ Sports. “This is gonna change the way college athletes want to stay in school.”
But Miller is just an incoming freshman at Tennessee State and hasn’t played in a college game yet. Still, he currently owns the title of the highest-paid college athlete in the country.
“I learned from my dad, I’m gonna start off by giving back to the community and everyone around me,” Miller said. “I’m giving back to the kids. Giving school supplies.”

Not only has Miller not played in a game, but he hasn’t made it to camp yet.
“I have a camp July 21,” he said.
Miller could prove to be worth the money once his college career begins, but he’s not projected to be a dominant college player.
Miller was rated a three-star recruit as a guard coming out of Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota and was the fifth-ranked prospect in the state. He was ranked 41st regionally and 46th nationally at his position.
But Miller did field offers from USC, UCLA, LSU, Missouri, and others before ultimately committing to Tennessee State, so he was on the recruiting radar of the nation’s premier men’s basketball programs.
