Miami Gets MSMU Transfer Miles Wilson

Miami has landed Mount St. Mary’s transfer Miles Wilson.

 

The 6-5 freshman shooting guard averaged 11.9 points and 3.9 rebounds this season for Mount St. Mary’s, leading the team to the Northeast Conference regular-season and tournament championships.

 

He started 24 games this year and was named to Northeast Conference All-Rookie Team.

 

Wilson made national headlines when he poured in 22 points against No. 1 Villanova in the NCAA Tournament’s first round in March.

 

“I’ve liked them from the jump,” Wilson told Scout of the Hurricanes. “They’ve been showing me love and kept making me a priority. I’m excited about the opportunity they were presenting and giving me. I felt like I couldn’t turn it down.”

 

“The relationship that I’ve built with [head] Coach [Jim Larranaga] and the school as far as academics, it’s just a perfect match,” Wilson added.

 

Due to NCAA transfer regulations, Wilson will have to sit out next season.

 

According to PalmBeachPost.com’s Matt Porter, Miami got Wilson to bolster their backcourt going forward.

 

“Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga was looking for an underclassman guard to transfer in, sit out and play a leading role in the backcourt [the following] season,” Porter wrote. “The reason for that: both sophomore Bruce Brown and incoming freshman Lonnie Walker are projected NBA lottery picks for 2018, and senior Ja’Quan Newton graduates. The loss of those players could deprive Miami of much of its backcourt scoring.”

 

Wilson, a big athletic shooting guard, is the perfect piece to fill this hole.
