MILES CITY -- Miles Community College announced the additions of three student-athletes to the men's basketball program. Eli Habighorst, Dylan Hushaw and Kaleb Naylor have signed their national letters of intent.

Habighorst is a 6-foot-0 guard from Foothill High School in Henderson, Nevada. Habighorst led the Falcons in rebounding, assists and free throw percentage during his senior season. He was also a Foothill Senior Athletic-Academic Leadership award nomination and a Las Vegas Prep first-team all-tourney selection in December.

"I like the playing style of the Pioneers," Habighorst. "I am excited to play for a coach that likes a run-and-gun game. I look forward to playing ball at a national JUCO level and hope to bring a conference championship to MCC."

Hushaw, a 6-2 guard also from Foothill High School, is transferring to Miles CC from Clark College in Washington. Hushaw led the Penguins in scoring at 14 points per game and shot 42 percent from the 3-point line while hitting 77 3s. He also shot 80 percent from the free throw line on the season.

At Foothill HS, he was first-team all-conference and third-team all-state during his senior season when he averaged 19 points, five rebounds and four assists per game. He scored more than 1,000 points in high school and hit 198 career 3-point field goals. Foothill was the division champions in 2018 and 2019.

"I feel Miles Community College is the best fit for me and my family to help continue my basketball and academic career," Hushaw said. "The coaching staff is great and cares about my best interests. I am excited to have a great year."

Naylor, a 6-2 guard from Zion-Benton Township High School in Zion, Illinois, averaged 12 points, five rebounds and four assists per game this season for the Bees. He was a three-year letter-winner for Zion-Benton Township and was part of the 2020 regional championship team. He is looking to become a Health/PE major.

"I chose Miles CC because of coach (Chase) Tait and the relationship he established with me from the start, and the style of play suited my abilities," Naylor said.
