Miles and Molock set to begin senior seasons

During the Early Signing Period, Saint Joseph's locked up commitments from point guard Kyle Molock and combo forward Isaiah Miles. Both players begin their senior seasons this week.

Isaiah Miles was one of Saint Joseph's top targets in the class of 2012 for quite some time. The 6'7 combo forward is a strong perimeter shooter, but is also comfortable on the glass as well. After spending his first three years of high school at Glenelg Country School (MD), Miles transferred to Milford Mill Academy (MD).

At Milford Mill, Miles is coached by Albert Holley, who spoke with Hawk Hill Hardwood last month about his senior forward. After explaining that Isaiah is most comfortable playing on the perimeter offensively, he explained that Isaiah is "comfortable under the basket" defensively, and able to defend either the 3 or the 4.

The Hawks will look for Isaiah Miles to step in next year able to battle on the boards and knock down shots from three like he has in high school. Last year, he shot 41% from beyond the arc.

Isaiah Miles and his Milford Mill Academy teammates tip off their 2011-2012 season on Wednesday at home against Dunbar. In addition to their regular slate of games in Baltimore, Miles and his teammates will also be making the trek north to play at Imhotep Charter (PA) and play in the Primetime Shootout in New Jersey. Hawk Hill Hardwood will be in attendance for those games.

Saint Joseph's got Isaiah Miles' verbal commitment at the beginning of September just days after his official visit to Hawk Hill. Just over a month later, history repeated itself when 6'2 Ohio point guard Kyle Molock offered up a verbal commitment to the Hawks a day after wrapping up his official visit to Hawk Hill.

Molock spoke with Hawk Hill Hardwood the day after committing to the Hawks, and said that chose the Hawks over Dayton, Stanford, Wofford, and Eastern Michigan. Kyle was originally a Purdue commit, but then reopened his recruitment this past summer.

The 6'2 floor general missed all of last season at Dublin Coffman (OH) with a torn ACL. He returns to the court for the first time in over a year this Saturday against Perrysburg (OH).

Stay tuned to Hawk Hill Hardwood throughout the season for the latest on both Isaiah Miles and Kyle Molock. Their seasons will be tracked here, and this is also the spot to get insight from both players and their coaches during the season.
