NBPA Top 100: Myles Powell

Myles Powell made the most of his opportunity at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.

Shooting guard Myles Powell was a late addition to the NBPA Top 100 Camp. Powell, who is known for his ability to really stroke the basketball from deep, made the most of his invitation to camp, and proved he belonged.

“I am here to prove that I am more than just a shooter,” said Powell. “I think I am showing people I can pass and also create off the dribble. Everybody knows I can shoot, but I have been working on my all-around game.”

That improved game has led to more and more interest coming in from college coaches.

“I have offers from Marquette, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Drexel, St. Joseph’s, Delaware, VCU, and DePaul,” said Powell.

He continued, “I just visited VCU and hopefully after Peach Jam I will set a few more visits.”

About his visit to VCU, Powell said, “It was a great visit. The campus is beautiful. I like the new coaching staff, they are great. Overall it was a real good visit.”

Another school showing Powell a ton of attention is Cincinnati. The Bearcats have been focused on improving their skill level on the perimeter, and that is what Powell brings to the table.

“I like the Cincinnati coaching staff,” said Powell of the school. “I talk to them like twice a week. We are building a good relationship, and hopefully I can visit there soon.”

Closer to home Rutgers is also making him a clear priority recruit, and Powell followed the Scarlet Knights growing up.

“Growing up Rutgers was one of my dream schools,” said Powell. “It is close to home and a big program, and now they are in the Big Ten so that is good.”

At this point Powell is in no hurry to make a commitment, but he does know what factors he is looking for in a school.

“I am looking for a place where I have a good relationship with the coaching staff as well as seeing the depth chart and if I can play right away,” said Powell.
