“We are thrilled with the addition of Miles and his family to the program,” St. Bonaventure head coach Mark Schmidt said. “He is an athletic and strong scoring combo guard who we think fits our system perfectly. We’ve obviously had a lot of recent success with guys from Putnam Science Academy; they run it like a college program and really coach the guys up. It’s also always exciting to add local talent, this time from Rochester. Miles will be ready to play and we expect him to contribute right away next season.”
This comes after Rose went on an official visit to the Bonaventure campus the weekend of Oct. 1-2. According to @SBUnfurled on twitter, Rose is the Bonnies’ first Class of 2023 recruit.
Rose currently attends Putnam Science Academy (PSA) in Connecticut. Last season, Rose and the Mustangs’ prep team went 38-0 and captured the National Prep Championship title. The 6-foot-5, 185-pound guard, who’s in final school year with PSA, is listed as having a 6-foot-9 wingspan. Former Bonnies Kyle Lofton and Osun Ousnniyi also attended Putnam.
In his sophomore season with the Bishop Kearney varsity boys’ basketball squad, Rose averaged 16.67 points, 3.0 and 2.0 steals per game. He also competed in AAU basketball with the New York Jayhawks, averaging 9.6 PPG.
Rose is the younger brother of Quinton Rose, also a past member of the Kings varsity boys’ basketball team and former standout of the Temple University men’s basketball squad. Quinton is currently on the roster for the Westchester Knicks, the NBA G-League affiliate of the New York Knicks.
Miles committed to Bonaventure over offers from Bryant University, Siena College, University at Albany and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
