Jason Smith Quotes (Brewster Head Coach) on Miles Norris

Thanks to Brewster Academy Head Basketball Coach Jason Smith for providing a few quotes on Miles Norris.  Coach Smith has won multiple national championships at Brewster.

Gaucho Hoops ("GH"):  Hi Coach Smith. UCSB hoops fans are excited that Miles verbally committed to the Gauchos.  Can I get a couple quotes from you on what type of student-athlete the Gauchos will be getting?  Thanks for the consideration.

Jason Smith ("JS"):  Miles is a tremendous talent.  [He's a] High level athlete and very skilled combo-forward. Wonderful young man and family! I look forward to following his career at UCSB.

GH:  Awesome. What are his strengths and what will he be working on during his redshirt year?

JS:  The redshirt year [requires] sitting out as a transfer, will be a great opportunity for Miles to mature physically and gain strength. He will provide the scout team with a very versatile, skilled player during daily practices.

GH:  He's obviously a very long post player. Is his game mostly in the post? Does he have a mid range shot and can he step out and stretch the defense?

JS:  Miles isn’t a post. He’s more of a hybrid forward. Very athletic and has skill level to stretch the floor with his shooting ability.

GH:  Who does he compare to in the NBA regarding his style of play?

JS:  He reminds me a lot of one of my former players, Jonah Bolden [Philadelphia 76ers]. Miles has potential to be a high level shooter. The redshirt year will help with his continued growth.

GH:  Thanks Coach and good luck next season!
