Michigan started receiving crystal balls for Miles on Friday morning, which quickly resulted in a commitment. Miles holds other offers from Indiana, Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan State, Minnesota, Pitt, Syracuse, West Virginia and a handful of Group of 5 schools.
Miles explained to 247Sports’ Allen Trieu why he chose Michigan.
“My mom really wanted me to be home, but other people who were helping me in the process didn’t care where I would pick and said they would support me wherever I picked, but I chose Michigan,” Miles said, “They have a great program. I love coach Nua, he loves me, I love Michigan and coach Harbaugh. Coach Nua has always been honest with me, told me the truth and I like people like that. They kept it 100 with me and were truthful with me so I feel they’ll be with me through thick and thin.”
Miles plays at River Rouge, which has produced quite a few Power 5 defensive linemen in the past few seasons. He is ranked as the No. 671 prospect in the country and the No. 48 DT. At 6-foot-5, 275 pounds, he is a properly-sized defensive tackle and has the frame to easily get up to 300 pounds by the time he reaches campus.
