This week, Alabama Crimson Tide basketball star Brandon Miller has been a source of controversy this week after it was revealed that Miller delivered a gun to ex-teammate Darius Miles that was allegedly used to kill 23-year-old Jamea Harris and that he drove a vehicle with the alleged murder weapon inside.
Though Brandon Miller has not been charged with a crime, the incident links him to the crime and Alabama head coach Nate Oats has been blasted for allowing Miller to continue to play.
DeCarla Cotton, the mother of Jamea Harris, blasted Oats and Alabama for allowing Miller to play and acting like he is a victim in the situation.
“It’s just unimaginable, and it’s like his life is just going on,’’ DeCarla Cotton told USA Today Sports on Thursday, according to Fox News. “He took a brief pause, and it didn’t stop. It’s like, ‘OK, slap on the wrist and go play ball.’ They’re worried about his career, but what about [my five-year-old grandson, Kaine]. He’s the true victim in all this. He won’t have a mother anymore to influence his growing up and who he’s going to be.”
In Miller’s only game since the new report surfaced, he scored a season-high 41 points in a win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.
