Point Guard Enjoys Auburn Camp Experience

Talented point guard Divine Myles from Blount High discusses his Auburn camp experience, his offers, and when he plans to make a decision.

Prichard, Ala.—A 5-10, 170 point guard from Blount High, explosive Divine Myles was one of the top performers over the weekend at Tony Barbee's Basketball Camp at the Auburn Arena.

A second team All-State performer last season for the Leopards, Myles says he was excited to play against the top competition at the camp and also about the opportunity to see more of Auburn.

"It was real good," Myles tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I was just very relaxed about the camp and honored to be there with Coach Tony Barbee, Coach (Tony) Madlock and the staff. They gave me the opportunity to come play and showcase my talent.

"I loved it," he adds. "I'm a competitor and I love to play the best. Anywhere the best talent is, that's where I want to be. I want to show my talents and just compete."

Offered by Auburn earlier this year, the class of 2014 prospect says the Tigers' coaching staff told him how much they want him to join the program and he sees plenty to like about them as well.

"Basically, they said they're going to be at my games this season," Myles points out. "They said they love the way I play and that I'm unselfish. They said they would love to get me to Auburn.

"When I went there for a game when they played Florida I just loved the atmosphere," he adds. "I love how the fans are and how the Auburn Family is. Basically, I love how everyone is so supportive to their team."

With offers from Seton Hall and South Alabama in addition to Auburn, Myles says that playing close to home is always great, but his decision will come down to the school that he feels is th best fit for him.

"I would love to see my parents at every single game, but I have to do what I have to do," Myles says. "Right now Seton Hall is probably coming at me the hardest right now. At first I was a little shaky about it (playing that far from home), but I want to play for the best staff and the staff that is going to care for me as a player. That's what really matters."

Myles says he hopes to have a decision sometime before his senior season begins and is shooting for a late July announcement.
