Washington picks up another QB commit
By ESPN.com staff
Quarterback Cyler Miles of Mullen High School in Denver has committed to Washington, according to ESPN Recruiting.
Miles, 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, is a member of the ESPNU Top 150 Watch List. He picked the Huskies over Florida, Illinois, Tennessee and Arkansas. He also had offers from Colorado, Arizona State, Clemson, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, Central Florida, Utah and Vanderbilt.
"It was where I felt the most comfortable and where I felt I had the best connection with the coaches," Miles told ESPN's Greg Biggins. "Everything I was looking for in a school, Washington had. I love the pro style offense, that's what I wanted to play in and I think they can best prepare me to meet my goals to play at the highest level."
Miles is the Huskies second A-list commitment from a quarterback. They previously won a pledge from Jeff Lindquist of Mercer Island, Wash.
ESPN's Tom Luginbill said of the news, "It is interesting because Miles is very similar to last year's Brett Hundley and Washington would have liked to have had him so they come out on the winning end here. He is big, athletic and a much better passer than many prospects considered to be dual-threats. Washington is continuing to get more athletic under center while still capturing the traits they want in a passer."
Miles, who runs a 4.43-40, passed for 2,114 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior while leading Mullen to a state title. He also rushed for 255 yards and six scores.
Washington now has five pledges.
