Myles Wilmoth is a rising talented power forward in the 2020 class. He is rated a 3-star by 247 sports. Wilmoth is the 2nd ranked prospect in New York, 36th ranked power forward, and the 225th ranked prospect in the 2020 class by 247 sports. He plays for St. Andrews high school in Spring Valley, New York. Wilmoth is 6-9 205 long, athletic, and one of the best two-way players in the 2020 class. He can impact the game on both ends of the floor and has a fluid long range jumper making him a threat inside and outside. I recently had a Stock Riser 1 on 1 with Myles after his Saint Joseph offer about what the hawks offer means to him and the update on the rest of his early recruitment.
LJ: What teams are recruiting you the hardest?
Myles: Siena, Princeton, George Washington, St. Joes. Maryland has been talking to my dad and my AAU coach and high school coach as well.
LJ: What did you average this past season and AAU?
Myles: At Bergen Catholic I had a very disappointing season for myself. I only averaged about 5 points and 4 rebounds but after figuring out my situation for this year and reclassifying I had a solid summer averaging 13 points 8 rebounds and 3 blocks with City Rocks 16U, excited for this season and also to redeem myself for last season.
LJ: What type of ball player would you label yourself?
Myles: I’m a versatile player offensively and defensively. I’m long, athletic, and I fit the position-less mold of 2018. I also believe that I have an underrated skill of being a playmaker with or without the ball in my hands.
LJ: What type of impact do you bring to a program?
Myles: Whatever program I end up choosing in the future. I am a hooper, I know how to play ball whether it’s outside or in an arena. I do it every day all day because I really enjoy it.
LJ: How did you feel when you got the Saint Joseph offer?
Myles: Feels great, I wasn’t expecting it and it just shows that hard work pays off. Coach Martelli is a great guy and I look forward to continue building a relationship with them.
LJ: You said Maryland was recruiting you. What do you like about Maryland?
Myles: I like the location, it’s pretty close to home and they play in one of the best conferences in basketball so that’s very attractive to me.
LJ: Do you plan to visit Maryland or Saint Joseph soon?
Myles: I do plan on going to Saint Joseph sometime soon but as far as Maryland no I haven’t planned that. I’ve also been to both campuses for either a team camp or my sister during her recruitment.
LJ: You have a sister who plays what’s her name?
Myles: Jordan Wilmoth, she’ll be a junior for Dayton Women’s basketball this year.
LJ: That’s great talent runs through your bloodline. What has she taught you about the game of basketball?
Myles: Watching her play and seeing college games I understand the high IQ level you have to have to play at that level and I see how this game really becomes your job because of how much they work out and practice. I think she’s a great role model to me academically because she really defines the word student-athlete. She is studying engineering which is very hard to manage along with basketball.
LJ: Do you have any upcoming visits?
Myles: No but I’ve taken unofficials to Dayton, Butler, Notre Dame, Marquette, Northwestern, and Rutgers during the month of August.
LJ: Who has offered?
Myles: Umass, Saint Joseph, Siena, and Bryant.
LJ: What schools are showing interest that haven’t offered?
Myles: Rutgers, Butler, UNC Charlotte.
