The Latest On C.J. Miles

One of the most watched recruitments of the year has been that of Dallas (Tex.) Skyline wing C.J. Miles. The No. 10 prospect in America is set for his ACC official visit this weekend.

A lot has been going on with C.J. Miles, the No. 3 small forward and No. 10 prospect overall in the Class of 2005. Unfortunately, Miles and his family dealt with a personal tragedy last week in which a relative was killed. On that same night, they mustered up the fortitude to conduct an in-home visit with Texas.

Since last week, there have been some minor things happen with his recruitment. For starters, Kansas received a verbal from Julian Wright last Friday and the Jayhawks were in his home Tuesday night to address the situation. As it stands right now, KU, Georgia Tech and Texas are battling for his services.

"Coach Self talked about the Julian Wright deal and explained to C.J. that he'd play the two," Calvin Miles, Sr., said. "He thought that with Julian Wright being a Jayhawk that would be more of a benefit to C.J. He said that Julian is not really a shooter and he's not a high point man. He did a nice job of selling his program. He was trying to get C.J. to say that he's coming to campus."

Aren't they all?

This weekend, Miles will visit Georgia Tech. He's got a mid-October visit scheduled to Texas as well. As it stands right now, Kansas remains in good shape with Miles.

"After last night, Kansas still is probably in a pretty good situation with C.J. but I know Texas is a close second and you have Georgia Tech this weekend. After the visit with Georgia Tech he could possibly decide where he wants to go to school."

Miles' father said comparing schools is still key in the decision making process.

"I told him that I wanted to have him something to compare it with. He needs to have something to go on because once you commit, that's your world."
