The first week of phone contact kept Myles busy receiving calls from schools expressing interest in him. “My recruitment has been going full force.” One of those schools was Georgia Tech. Tech called to extend an offer to Douglas. Tech Coach Tom Herrion called to let Myles know that he liked what he saw from his game. “He has been watching me for a while and couldn't wait to offer me a verbal scholarship."

Tech’s rich basketball history and academic reputation are two of the things that Myles likes about the school. “Coach Herrion really showed me a lot of love. I’ve looked at what they need and when I get ready for college, they could be a great fit.” Tech is recruiting Myles as a two guard. Myles feels that is a position where he could be productive because of his ability to create.

Not all of the schools recruiting the 6’4” wing are looking at him as a two guard. "Some schools see me as a small forward.” Myles feels that he could play either one but will leave it up to the coaches to decide where he plays. At the present time, Myles is focusing on finishing up his strong AAU season. Douglas will wait until August to begin visiting schools. "I’ll look at which schools are showing the most interest when deciding on which schools to visit.”

Despite having the opportunity to sign in the early signing period, Myles will probably wait until the late signing period. "I’d like to sign in March to be honest.”

His relationship with the coaching staffs will play an important role in his decision. Myles will also be looking to see how comfortable he is at each school as well as the academic support he’ll receive from those schools.
