Chula Vista (Calif.) Mater Dei forward Miles Norris is one of the top players in the west in 2018, but wants to continue to get better.
“I want to improve my all-around game,” Norris said. “I am working on handling the ball, getting stronger, boxing out and rebounding, and being more of a team leader.
“Right now my strengths are that I run the floor well and I am a good shot blocker.”
Teams have noticed those strengths and are aggressively recruiting the 6-foot-9, 195-pound five-star prospect.
“I am hearing from mostly Pac-12 schools such as Arizona, Oregon, USC, and Washington,” Norris said.
“San Diego State is recruiting me also. Duke has come in lately and Maryland is another new one.
“Most of the schools are just trying to get to know me and I am working on getting to know the coaches.”
Arizona has made its presence known early and Norris is impressed with what the Wildcats have to offer.
“I love Arizona,” he said. “I am supposed to go take a visit later this summer or at the beginning of the school year.
“They tell me I can come in and compete right away. Coach Miller emphasizes defense and I think I need to improve my defense, so I like that.”
In addition to Arizona, Norris will visit other schools and has a good idea of what he will be looking for.
“I will look at the school, atmosphere, and how I fit in,” he said. “I will look at the style of play also, but mostly if I just like the school and atmosphere.”
