Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Myles Powell, who recently transferred to South Kent (CT) from Trenton (N.J.) Catholic, has cut his list to five schools, a source told SNY.tv.
The 6-2 Powell is considering UConn, Pittsburgh, VCU, Seton Hall and DePaul. He cut Georgetown, Georgia Tech and St. Joe’s from his list. Visits are expected to begin “immediately,” the source said.
“Myles is one of the top long-range shooters in the country,” South Kent coach Kelvin Jefferson recently told SNY.tv. “He can stretch the defense with his range but he has a good IQ and feel for the game. He can pass and crease easy baskets for his teammates.”
