    This measurement could, of course, be off, but he told me that he is 6-foot-10 already. I think he is at least all of 6-foot-9

    Not to mention he still has a year in HS left to grow.

    I've seen 6'10 more than anything in reports. I've seen as low as 6'8 once, but mostly I'm seeing 6'10. Dig it.

    I want to know what his wingspan is. Nobody blocks shots or dunks with the top of their head (what is considered height). Tell me how high he can reach.

    This e-report lists Myles as 6'-10", with a 7'-2" wingspan.

    WILMOTH COMMITS TO BUTLER AFTER DISPLAYING VALUE, VERSATILITY @ 2019 NEPSAC COLLEGE SHOWCASE

    By THE HUSTLE, 07/04/19, 5:30PM EDT

    MYLES WILMOTH, 6’10” WING/BIG, ST. ANDREW’S

    Wilmoth came to New England with a humble introduction to the NEPSAC during the early part of St Andrew’s ’18-’19 schedule. By the end of the season, however, the entire region understood just how good the New York-native was and how much potential was still left in the tank. Wilmoth put the entire package on display during the 2019 NEPSAC-AA Championship Game, where he combined with Syracuse-commit Brycen Goodine and future-Bryant point guard Benson Lin to lead St. Andrew’s to an emphatic win over Cushingwhile cementing his status as one of 2020’s rising prospects heading into the spring grassroots season.




    During the 2019 EYBL Regular Season, Wilmoth averaged 8.8 points, 6 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 assists as his City Rocks squad finished with a 5-8 record. He showcased his versatility as different points in EYBL play, with season-highs of 24 points (vs The Family), 11 rebounds (vs Team Takeover), 4 assists (vs Boo Williams) and 4 blocks (vs The Family). The immense potential held by Wilmoth didn't always show up in the stat book, as the fluid and bouncy 6’10” athlete effected nearly twice as many shots as he blocked over the course of each game.





    THE PROGRAM: BUTLER (BIG EAST)

    LaVall Jordan’s program owns as rich a recent history as anybody in America but the Bulldogs are now fighting to retrieve the momentum they owned after heading to back-to-back National Championship Games in 2010 and 2011. While it’s unreasonable to expect any program to reach those lofty standards, Jordan is a proud alum who will undoubtedly set the expectations as high as possible year-in and year-out.

    Solidifying the services of under-the-radar prospects like Wilmoth will be a huge part of that process going forward.

    THE FIT: As long as a short-term developmental plan is put in place, Wilmoth and Butler should have a great relationship long-term. The versatile 6’10” wing/big should eventually become a mismatch nightmare in the Big East and give opponents a pick-your-poison type of dilemma when it comes to choosing how to defend him.

    While he figures out just how often and in which ways he can have his biggest impact on a nightly basis, Wilmoth’s diverse skillset should allow the coaching staff to give him specific duties early in his college career while expanding his role as his game develops.

    If he reaches his uniquely vast potential at any point in his college career, Butler could very well return to their glory years during the early part of the decade and Wilmoth’s name could be planted in the minds of pro scouts.

    What am I missing here? The size, length, mobility and tools suggest an EASY top 150 ranking for this kid.

    What gives? Inconsistency? Has he made major strides recently and rankings haven’t caught up yet?

    Cannot imagine there are 200+ guys that project as better college players than this kid in the class of ‘20.

    I do agree he should be ranked higher, my only hesitation is the Jackson Davis comparison.

    I think Myles has a higher ceiling, but if we remember there was a lot to like about Davis back in 2014. At 6'8, lengthy, someone who could run the court, was athletic, could in theory protect the rim, had a serviceable jump shot in HS, had a few SEC offers, was runner-up Kentucky Mr. Basketball if I'm not mistaken. Coming out of high school the 3 man recruiting class including himself, Martin and Wideman was potentially a 3 year starting front-court.

    Of course, he couldn't get any rotational minutes at all in 2 years at Butler. Obviously injuries derailed his career a bit which is too bad because he could have been a decent mid-major player, but my point is simply there is a lot to compare between the two on paper. Very similar in recruiting rankings as well up to this point.

    I understand Myles is a little taller, little longer, etc. I think he will pan out much better than Davis but as with most high-ceiling projects, there's a low floor. We really need Myles to be closer to his ceiling.

    Interesting to think how far Barlow got with limited athleticism versus Jackson Davis with incredible athleticism. Injuries certainly set back Davis and drive and determination drove Barlow. Based on skill alone Rose Jones should have had limited time on a D1 floor. There were a ton of players that were drafted ahead of Kawhi Leonard that tanked. Player rankings and skill assessment remain in the eye of the beholder.

    I read a little on DJ Wilson, since that's the comparison Myles said LJ used in the recruitment. Interesting they identified DJ as having some sort of knock kneed issue. He had a corrective surgery and added 8" to his vertical. I didn't see a great deal of explosiveness in Myles, but it was super small video sample.

    For those of you who give merit to kids coming from basketball families, just realized Myles' sister, Jordan, will be a senior this year on the women's basketball team at Dayton.

    Wow Myles looks every bit of 6'10" next to PJ. If he plays anything like Kam Woods I'm sold. Way to go staff on this one. Imagine him getting buckets all day from those crafty guards. And has a jumper. Wow. Total sleeper.

    Go Dawgs!

    My God he needs a nutrition plan and weight program. Dude is a twig! Needs 20lbs of muscle, at which point he will be a force.

    Wilmoth is already about 20 lbs. heavier than Kam was ever listed at BU.

    I don't want to say another 20 pounds wouldn't help, but the trend these days are long athletic and quick. The days of the Karl Malone's are in the past. He is a prototypical forward in college and NBA. He will grow into his body a bit as he matures and gets into a weight program. However, I am good with him being long and athletic. He kind of reminds me of Kevin Durant or Kevin Garnett (Not in skill, just in body make up). I am very excited to see what he can bring to the program. Saying all of that, if he wants to put on 20-30 pounds of muscle I am also good with that. :D:D:D

    I read he was 190 lbs. last year. So this should not be a concern yet.

    Favorite play was when he blocked the shot and sprinted after it to get the possession (his teammate got the ball but most people just stand after blocking a shot). Excited about his potential. It's a bit of a mystery as to why he is rated the way he is, but, in the end, that won't matter.
