The Wake Forest basketball staff hosted an important unofficial visitor yesterday, as 2013 SG Miles Overton spent the day on campus. Listed at 6'4 and 200 pounds, Overton attends St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Overton has an offer from the Deacs, as head coach Jeff Bzdelik looks to add a shooting guard to replace the graduating C.J. Harris.
This morning, I had the chance to interview Overton. We discussed his visit, his upcoming plans, and his overall game.
Check it out after the jump.
Analysis: As of right now, I think it is safe to say that Wake is in very good shape with Overton:
1) He clearly made visiting Wake a priority.
2) Wake is just about the only non-local school he seems seriously interested in.
3) Both his parents came on the visit.
It's important to note, however, that his recruitment appears to be far from over. While he wants to commit early (i.e before mid-November), he also wants to take a number of other visits. It'll be interesting to see where he ends up visiting this fall. Almost assuredly, Wake will need to beat out a local school, which is typically very difficult. I think we'll need to get a second visit. As it stands right now though, I believe we are towards the top of his list.
Again, many thanks to Miles Overton (@MilesOverton) for taking the time to answer our questions.
