CARROLLTON — After finishing his seven-year-long grassroots career with the Texas Titans on the EYBL Circuit, Mike Miles has trimmed his list down to five schools. The three-star guard has left Auburn, Butler, North Texas, Oklahoma State, and TCU on his option sheet for now.

IN MIKE’S WORDS

North Texas: “I have not been on the new campus officially. They came in pretty late but their coaching staff contacted me after Peach Jam and I love what they said. I have known their staff for two years and am taking them very seriously.”

Oklahoma State: “Cade Cunningham and I have talked about teaming up there a little bit. They were the second school to offer me and it meant a lot. I went on an unofficial visit two years ago and I enjoyed the campus and like Coach Boynton.

TCU: “They were the first school to offer me. The coaching staff has believed in me since I was a freshman. I talk to Coach Benford every day and I like what he says about how I could help the program. It means a lot to stay in the DFW because it gives my family and friends a chance to come and support me.”

BOTTOM LINE

Miles says that he wants to go to a school where he feels comfortable, trusts the coaching staff, and gets the most amount of playing time. Looking to sign early in the fall, look for TCU to be the favorite here as they have consistently recruited the Lancaster native nearly throughout his entire high school career. 

Whoever does receive a commitment from Miles, will be getting a solid floor general who is at his best when attacking the rim. He penetrates then kicks the ball out to the open man and is a threat to poke balls loose on the defensive end. Miles mentioned that his main goal is to lead pre-season 5A favorite Lancaster to a state championship this upcoming season.
