Paul VI rising senior Myles Douglas announce his commitment to the University of Central Florida on Tuesday.
The Baltimore native is a three-star forward, and ranked the No. 9 player in Maryland by 247sports. Douglas chose UCF over Maryland, West Virginia, Miami, Penn State, Rutgers and others.
“The relationship I have with coach Kevin Norris,” Douglas told Scout.com. “He has been recruiting me from USC since 10th grade and when he made the jump to UCF he never stopped.”
In his first season with Paul VI, Douglas averaged 10 points and five rebounds. Prior to playing with the Panthers, he spent two years as a starter for Friends School.
“Myles is a skilled big kid who can do it all,” Friends coach Holley said to the Baltimore Sun. “He plays unselfish, works hard and loves the game. His success was inevitable.”
Myles will be joining former DeMatha guard Terrell Allen, who will be transferring to UCF after one year at Drexel.
“Also the relationship I have come to build with Johnny Dawkins,” Douglas told Scout.com. “Everything is new at the school as well. As far as coaching jobs they have a great staff they have assemble together. The environment is great. I couldn’t ask for a better one in Orlando. I could just feel that it was the right place for me to go. Also they believe in me more than anybody. It’s a great conference and in the next few years were gonna blow up.”
