Wiley hearing from top schools

All the powers who recruit the Washington D.C. area are continuing to stay in touch with four-star shooting guard Dion Wiley.

One of the top shooting guards in the 2014 class is Dion Wiley. The Oxon Hill (Md.) Potomac standout had an excellent season during the high school year and is now prepping for a big summer on the AAU circuit with Team Takeover. College coaches remain very active in recruiting Wiley.

"We didn't play how we wanted to in the state game, but overall we had a great season," said Wiley of the year.

He continued, "My ball handling and my vision were both a lot better this year, and overall I think I got better."

Recruiting wise Wiley has been a top target for numerous high level programs, and numerous coaches made sure to stop by during the year.

"Maryland, Miami, Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Cincinnati have been the main ones coming to see me," listed Wiley.

The in-state Terrapins have been very active in recruiting Wiley for a while, and he feels he would fit in well in College Park.

"Maryland could use some shooters and I think that is what I do," said Wiley. "I think I would fit in well with their style of play and I have a good relationship with the coaches."

Also the Virginia Cavaliers have made sure to continue to show him attention.

"I like the way Virginia plays and the coaches seem nice, so I am taking a look at them," he explained.

Another school that has picked things up is Miami. The Hurricanes are having a great year this year and are trying to carry that momentum over to the recruiting trail.

"I feel good about Miami because they are a top five team in the nation and I really like their style of play," said Wiley.

For now the No. 42 prospect in the nation is unsure of when he will make a decision, but he doesn't expect to make a choice quickly.
