Three-star combo forward Myles Douglas is off to a good start at Paul VI this season. The junior forward has shown improvement athletically and with the dribble, and recruiting continues to be going well.
“It has been a good start to the year,” said Douglas. “I feel we are getting better as a team, and individually I have been doing well. I am working to be more versatile and improving on getting to the basket as well as being able to shoot.”
When it comes to his recruitment overall, Douglas said, “Maryland, USC, Syracuse, Villanova, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, and a few others are mainly who I am hearing from.”
About Maryland, Douglas said, “I know they are a good program. I have been hearing from them since my freshman year and as a program they keep getting better each and every year which is something I like.”
One school that has been increasingly active in Douglas’ recruiting has been the Mountaineers of West Virginia. Bob Huggins has traditionally liked to recruit the DMV, and Douglas is intrigued with the opportunity that they present.
“I’ve been up to West Virginia, and I liked what I saw,” noted Douglas. “They play with a fast tempo which is similar to what we like to do at Paul VI, just faster which is a good thing.”
Another school that has done well in the Washington D.C. area is Villanova, and Douglas feels he fits in with Jay Wright and company’s style of play.
“Villanova runs a four guard offense which I like with a lot of drive and kick opportunities,” said Douglas. “Also they stress unselfishness as players which I like.”
For now Douglas is focused on his high school season and being the best player he can. He wants to make visits after the year to help gain more information about the schools recruiting him.
