C.J. Miles update

All C.J. Miles has done this summer is rise from a very good prospect to an elite prospect. The wing player has risen to the No. 6 overall prospect in the country. We caught up with Miles recently to get an update on his recruitment.

One thing you keep hearing about C.J. Miles is that he and Kevin Rogers are seriously trying to be recruited as a package deal. Miles confirmed that is exactly what their plan is. They are listing a ton of teams, but only one club is looking at Miles and not Rogers.

"The only one that has just started is Duke," Miles said. "They just started in Vegas. They just started on me, I don't think they have seen Kevin yet."

Arizona, Kansas, Texas and North Carolina are the schools that are coming at them the hardest so far, but other teams like Oklahoma, Baylor and others are involved. Every interview you read has the two listing different teams, but Miles claims that is on the individual interviewers, not the two players.

"That's how people are writing it down," Miles explained. "We don't have a leader yet."

One team that is certainly in good is the Wildcats. Both players are receiving a lot of attention from the Wildcats and expect them to make a visit. The fact that the Wildcats can't bring them in until the fall will have no bearing. Miles just took the SAT on Saturday, while Rogers will have to wait. He tried to take the test last weekend, but had a problem with his identification. He's on several waiting lists, but may have to wait until October.

"Me and Kevin say we're going to visit them in the fall," Miles said. "Arizona will be in out top five."

He and Rogers took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma this week and they plan on making an unofficial visit to Kansas in the upcoming weeks.

Although Miles is in no rush to make visits and settle on a school, he does have a timetable for making a commitment.

"I am going to try and make a decision before my high school season starts so I can just go out and play. That way a coach can tell me what I need to work on during the season."

Miles has played great this spring. He wowed observers in Las Vegas and turned even more heads at the Kingwood Classic. Although he was not sharp in the final All-Star game at the Pangos All-American Camp, he was clearly the best 2005 prospect at the event.

CAT TRACKS' ANALYSIS: Miles continues to be one of the Wildcats' top targets and for good reason, the kid can play. The Cats benefit from Rogers not taking the SAT, because they can push back a dual visit until the fall when they have a full allotment of visits.
