You’ve got to love a kid whose commitment video ends with “I’ve decided to stay home and put on for the city that made me. Go Frogs.”
But it’s not just his desire to play for his hometown team that will have Frog fans swooning... his game is pretty lovely as well. Though just 6’2”, Miles is an explosive athlete who attacks the rim and throws down thunderous dunks regularly. Holding offers from schools like LSU, Oregon, Auburn, Oklahoma State, and Butler, Miles will bring a strong offensive game and great vision to TCU, where he will have a chance to compete immediately for a big role with current freshman Francisco Farabello.
As a senior, Miles is averaging 22.0 points, 5.0 assists, 4.0 steals and 3.0 rebounds per game for the Tigers, who are the #1 ranked team in Texas currently. Last season, Miles was named District MVP for leading his team to the semis. He was also an all-state player for Lancaster last year and is well on his way to a repeat performance in his final high school season.
Not only did Miles commit to TCU, but he signed as well, sealing the deal on a huge recruiting win for Jamie Dixon. TCU Basketball has brought in some top prospects, but hasn’t locked down an elite DFW player yet. Miles represents just that — he’s the #114th ranked player in the country and top ten in the state, as well as being a top 25 point guard in the class of 2020.
Miles joins Terren Frank and Eddie Lampkin as 2020 signees, and will join current redshirts Mickey Pearson and Taryn Todd as first year players when they take the floor next fall. Transfer Kevin Easley will also help to form a formidable unit that will need to replace seniors Edric Dennis, Jaire Grayer, and of course Desmond Bane. Kevin Samuel will also likely explore the NBA Draft once again in 2020.
