Anthony Myles Rider-bound
Rider scored a major recruiting victory when Anthony Myles, a highly touted shooting guard from Dover, Del. gave coach Tommy Dempsey a verbal commitment.
Myles, a standout at Polytech High School, is rated the No. 171 senior in the country by Hoop Scoop -- the highest ranking ever for a Rider recruit. The other member of Rider's Class of 2010, Philadelphia forward Danny Stewart, is rated No. 381 on the same list.
Myles had scholarship offers from Temple and South Florida, among others. When he didn't make a commitment early, several mid-major schools jumped in, including Rider and Niagara. Boston College showed late interest but hadn't offered a scholarship.
After watching Rider's 86-70 win over Canisius on Sunday, Myles called Dempsey Monday night to commit.
For now, this solidifies Rider's 2010-11 roster, though a scholarship would open up if someone on the Broncs' current roster opted to leave the program.
