Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- A talented guard is hidden on the beaches of Alabama. Divine Myles, a 2014 point guard out of Mobile’s Blount High School, is a very talented player, and coaches are beginning to take notice of his talents.
Because of the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s rules on transfers, Myles was not allowed to participate in high school basketball this past season, as he transferred from Faith Academy to Blount. However, that hasn’t stopped the young player.
“I worked very hard on my shooting and defense while I was ineligible. The area I’m constantly trying to work on is my defense.”
Prior to transferring, he averaged 12 points and eight assists as a freshman at Faith Academy.
Seton Hall, Memphis, Baylor, Tennessee, Marquette, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Tennessee Tech, and Kennesaw State are all looking at Myles so far, but are any sticking out?
“I like Seton Hall, Memphis, Baylor, Tennessee, and Marquette. They are all very prestigious schools with great basketball programs,” he began. “I would say Seton Hall is showing the most interest in me right now, though.”
In fact, the Pirates' Kevin Willard contacted Myles within the past week to speak to him.
A member of the Alabama Select, Myles led his squad to the 16U championship game at the Future150 Main Event in Suwanee a few weeks ago. During the tournament, he displayed great handles and passing, things necessary for a point guard.
“I compare myself to Rajon Rondo because I set my teammates up for easy baskets, but I can score when my team needs me to. I also consider myself a leader,” he said.
Myles has yet to take any unofficial visits, but he hopes to take some in the near future.
