Washington picks up ESPN150 QB Cyler Miles out of Colorado


http://rivals.yahoo.com/footballrecr...r-Miles-117130

Quote:
The Huskies, however, are continuing to stockpile quarterbacks, the latest coming Friday when UW received a commitment from Cyler Miles of Mullen High School in Denver, where he will be a senior this fall.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder is the second quarterback to commit for the Class of 2012, joining Mercer Island's Jeff Lindquist, who committed in late April. Players cannot sign binding letters of intent until Feb. 1.

That gives UW the prospect of five scholarship quarterbacks for 2012, all of whom would be juniors or younger Price, Nick Montana (currently a redshirt freshman), incoming freshman Derrick Brown who signed last February, and Lindquist and Miles.

Miles, however, said he isn't worried about the numbers.

"I think every school, there is another quarterback that is going to be there," Miles said in a telephone interview Friday. "That wasn't a big factor. You're going to have to compete wherever you go, that's how I look at it."

Miles also had offers from Illinois, Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida and Colorado, where his father Brian played running back.

But he said Colorado, which recently received a commitment from California quarterback Shane Dillon, didn't feel right.

He visited UW during spring practice and said, "I loved everything about it. It just seemed to fit. I could really see myself there for the next four, five years. I narrowed the schools down and I just decided that's where I had the best relationship with the coaches and the players. I loved being around the guys. That's how I determined the decision."

Rivals.com rates Miles as a four-star quarterback while Scout.com has him at three stars and the No. 15 QB overall.

He was 144 of 212 passing last season (67.9 percent) for 2,114 yards and 20 touchdowns while also rushing for 255 yards and six touchdowns for Mullen, a private Catholic school that won the state 5A title.

Current UW receiver Devin Aguilar also attended Mullen, and Miles said that helped in the early learning process about Washington.

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

Some pretty eyebrow-raising stuff in the last two Detroit News articles from Sam Webb.

Bill Greene: No one really knows, but my guess is that it is going to be bad. I think it is going to be real bad. I think the kids they are after the four- and five-star prospects like Se'Von Pittman (a four-star defensive end from Canton McKinley), Adolphus Washington (a five-star defensive end from Cincinnati Taft), and Greg McMullen (a four-star defensive end from Akron Archbishop Hoban) it is going to be hard to get those guys.
Quote:
Bill Greene: I think Michigan absolutely has a legitimate shot at Brionte Dunn. I think Penn State would be appealing to him too. I would not be surprised to him take official visits in the fall regardless of him reaffirming his commitment to Ohio State two days ago. I think there is still some uncertainty there. I would never call into question a kid's statement that everything is fine and he is 100 percent committed, but I think we will see him on a few other campuses before he signs his letter of intent. Early on in the process when he talked Alabama, Florida, and those schools, I never really saw Brionte as a kid that would go a thousand miles from home. I just do not think he is that type of kid. I think any of the schools in the Midwest that can sell him on an I-formation, power running game has got a shot. I would put Michigan as the No. 1 competitor for Ohio State for Brionte Dunn and I would say Penn State is right there too. He said he's also going to visit Penn State.
Quote:
Bill Greene: I have known Se'Von since he was 12. I think I know him pretty well. He's another one that I don't think is going to go a thousand miles from home to college. I could be wrong, but I think with Se'Von Pittman it is a two-team race with Michigan and Ohio State. Everyone else is trying to get in where they can fit in. I think he is going to visit Alabama, I think he is going to visit Florida, but I think in the end he is going to stay close to his mom and play in the Midwest. Three months ago I would have said done deal Ohio State total lock Ohio State. I certainly wouldn't say that today.
Quote:
Dave Berk: I think we were hearing from Adolphus and those close to Adolphus even back at the Columbus Nike camp that Ohio State has really moved down that list. Everyone expected Jim Tressel to fight this thing through, but now that he is no longer the head coach, I think it hurts Ohio State. I really think Michigan may be the program to beat.
Quote:
Allen Trieu: There has been some question with people around Ohio State and our insiders as to whether or not Stanford has a committable offer. If it comes out being the case that he does not have one, I think it would affect them greatly because those two definitely want to play together. As far as the recent events at Ohio State go, I think it is going to affect Washington and his dad's stance a little. I think it is a wait-and-see thing with what is going to happen. While they are waiting things out, that opens the door for a lot of schools to come in on Washington and Stanford. As for where Michigan and Michigan State stand, I really think Michigan has a good chance. They need to get those guys on campus. They have shown interest in coming up to visit, which obviously the first step. With Michigan State, I honestly don't hear Michigan State mentioned too much for those guys.
Quote:
Bill Greene: I do not think Ohio State is a clear favorite for Adolphus Washington, and yes I did say (Ohio State was the favorite) back in February because it was true at the time. It is not now. I talked to his dad when they were at the Nike camp. I would think for Adolphus Washington, Ohio State is there, but Michigan is in really good shape.
Quote:
Bill Greene: I would put him in the wide-open category. I think he is a Notre Dame, Michigan battle. I think Ohio State is lurking. I certainly wouldn't put Ohio State as the favorite. I think they've lost a lot of ground with Tom Strobel. I don't see Tom Strobel going 3,000 miles away to Stanford. I could be wrong. If he visits there and falls in love, you never know. But I think Michigan and Notre Dame are in really good shape for him.

Re: 2012 Recruiting Thread

I'm expecting to Dunn to rule us out of his recruitment in October-ish when the NCAA sanctions likely come down.

Shame this all had to happen when Ohio had its best recruiting class in over a decade.

It'll be interesting to see what happens. I think UM has a great chance to pull Wormley (done deal), Pittman, Dunn, and maybe Strobel. Washington, Stanford, Kalis, Bogard, etc....not so sure.

Is it true OSU hasn't actually offered Stanford?

As of a week or two ago the word was that he didn't have a committable offer... which is stupid to me.

I'm very high on Stanford, regardless of what his 40 time is. I think he's gonna be a bonafide star in college, and if we keep *****footing around with his recruiting he's gonna end up doing it for someone else.
