Arizona junior getting noticed

Jamal Miles is one of the top junior football players in the state of Arizona. The Peoria running back is already attracting interest, including an early offer.

Miles is a 5-11, 170 pound running back from Peoria High School. He's already rushed for over 600 yards in four games. He's not the biggest back, but has good speed and great moves. He's very shifty and can change direction on a dime.

According to Miles, he has already received a scholarship from the Wildcats and the Cats are in it at this time.

"I think they are a pretty good school," Miles said of the Cats.

He admits that he really hasn't given a ton of thought to recruiting. He grew up watching ASU and USC, but does not know if being a fan of those teams that will translate into recruiting interest.

"I am going to wait a while and see what happens," Miles said when asked if he had any plans on making an early commitment.

He currently splits time with senior Ezra Sanchez. While some players hate sharing carries, Miles does not seem to mind at all. With the way Peoria scores, there are plenty of touches.

"It kind of helps me," said Miles. "When I get tired he is there to help me out."

Like all players his age, Miles wants to add more size and speed. He is well aware that he needs to be steady on and off the field.

"I just keep my grades up and keep working hard," Miles said. "I need to practice hard."
