Lancaster HS (TX) sophomore Mike Miles was one of the very best prospects at the Elite 14 Showcase regardless of class. Highlights of the 6’2 guard in Wichita Falls after the jump.
Miles came in a with a reputation as one of the better guards in the 2020 class and he didn’t disappoint. He really thrived as a shot creator off the dribble in the half court, repeatedly creating separation off the bounce before pulling up and knocking down midrange jumpers. In transition Mike displayed really nice change of speed, hitting his defenders with hesitation dribbles before accelerating to the rim and finishing. Miles was able to connect on a catch and shoot three as well, and looked great when breaking his defender down in isolation situations before pulling up for NBA range triples. While those threes didn’t connect, the shot attempts were on line and barely long, with his release looking effortless. The Dallas area native is one of the better lead guard prospects we’ve viewed in the 2020 class, with NBA range and ability to create offense off the dribble. If he can continue to develop his vision/passing, Mike is likely to be one of the best guards in the country for the 2020 class. See below for highlights.
