Chris Miles, 6-10 center from Timpview High School (Utah), was ranked No. 3, and David Burgess, a 6-10 center from Woodbridge High School (Calif.), was ranked No. 5 among the best 2004 West Coast centers.
Another top BYU basketball signee, Lee Cummard, was previously rated by TheInsidersHoops.com as the No. 1 shooting guard prospect in the west.
According to Greg Hicks, TheInsiders.com veteran basketball analyst, "(Chris) Miles didn't get seen by a lot of people outside of the west, but we think BYU got themselves a very good prospect. Miles has a very good body, good feet and hands, and also has some toughness. He should eventually be one of the better players in the Mountain West conference."
Burgess, he noted, "has a big body and good skills. He needs to tone up a bit, and work on staying focused, but he's got a nice feel for the game and should be a solid player for BYU."
Miles and Burgess will be suiting up for the Cougars next season while Cummard has elected to serve an LDS mission before he enrolls at BYU.
