    HA. This is such a classic Butler commitment. We follow dozens of players and get a commit from one we've never heard of.

    We are his only high major offer. 3 star. Eh, definitely looks like a project. Needs lots of weight if he's going to live in the BE. Like I said yesterday, it's officially second tier targeting now.

    Runs with City Rocks who I was told played Indy heat in eybl...so, maybe someone got a look at him?

    Well, LaVall & Co. have a pretty decent history of finding gems before the rest; hopefully this is the same.

    Haha who?!

    Amazing this kid was never mentioned on the board, and it was never reported that he had been offered.

    That said, Welcome to Butler!

    I’m going to say this now because I already know what replies are coming. Butler clearly wants this kid and disagree with his ranking/believes in his potential. They aren’t reaching down to sub200 kids because they are desperate. Teams don’t do that in June. Butler wants to take a shot here. If they are excited about his potential everyone here should be too. We’ve seen LaVall identify kids like this early in the past, let’s hope he’s done so again.

    It is interesting no one ever had a clue about an offer. Maybe they just offered and he jumped right away at it.

    Regardless of his ranking, I'm thrilled to see that we are recruiting long, athletic, above-the-rim, big men.

    We strike again on the east coast. Being in the Big East is paying dividends. With the amount of scholarships we have in that class, I'm fine with taking a "project". We really could have used a Kam Woods last year and I think Myles is strides above where Kam was at this point in his career.

    Welcome aboard Myles! It's a good day to be a bulldog.

    Looks like a high upside guy. Man this is a tough crowd. We don't pull top 50 guys... Yet. This is the kind of guy LJ needs in his system versatile athletic 4s. He's what 16/17? Let him fill into his body, get in a college weight lifting regimen. Now that he's committed I'm sure our strength guys will be sending him info. He can rebound, push the ball in transition, finish above the rim, block shots, shoot 3's. This is the prototypical NBA 4 now. Can we please stop looking at rankings on 16/17 year olds especially ones who haven't grown into their bodies yet... Jaxson Hayes...he's going to be a really good player for Butler and If he develops has NBA upside.

    Just watched a couple videos.

    I'd love to know what this guy's wingspan is, it looks enormous. I like his shot form too. He appears to make a lot of hustle plays and has a great motor. I'm really excited to see how this kid develops. We may have found a gem!

    Like this commitment. Might be slender but he is already 6’8” and appears to be a quick jumper. We may finally have a true shot blocker, which would be a first since Kam Woods.

    He appears to be playing up a year on the EYBL circuit, too. He's one of only 3 2020s on the team. I'm sure we saw Myles when we were scouting Symir Torrence.

    Agreed. Seems he's been blowing up a bit on the summer circuit, too. Definitely someone they think is a player ready to grow.

    Not even attempting to make comparison; however, Paul Reed from DePaul is listed at 6'9" 210 LBS, and he seems to handle his own in the Big East. If he can be anywhere close t0 Paul when he gets to Butler, I will be thrilled.

    It would be nice if he could bring Andre Jackson with him. Steal another one out of Cuse's hands :p

    I agree that Lavall and company has done a great job of finding talent before most schools recognize them. I love this pick up. After about the top 25-50 guys in a class I don’t pay attention to rankings. It’s a crap shoot after that. Good Job Coaches!!!

    He runs with a hell of eybl team, that's for sure.

    I like the height and wing span, needs about 15-20 on him.

    I do hope we are still in play for one of the forward offers we have. I'm dying for Cross, Coles or Scooby. But, so are many schools.

    Agree, after what Coach Johnson did with Bryce Golden in his first year, a redshirt 4 that spends a year in the weight room seems like a really good idea. Now if LJ can find us a top tier 2, I think this class may be better than we anticipate.

    Welcome Myles!
