Clemson, Washington, Colorado, UCLA and Tennessee were among the 15 or so schools that have sent coaches by Mullen High School in Denver to check on Cyler Miles, a three-star junior.

"We had a little workout at 7 in the morning yesterday, so [Morris] watched spin the ball a little bit for about an hour," Miles told CUTigers.com on Friday.

"I talked to him just briefly at school because they're not allowed to talk to you, but I'm probably going to call him tonight."

He hadn't received much interest from Clemson before Morris made the offer late last month.

"They're all the way over there in South Carolina and that's far away from home," Miles said. "They really didn't show too much interest before they offered. I'm still happy with it."

The Scout.com No. 14 ranked quarterback is still learning about Clemson and getting to know the Tigers' first-year offensive coordinator.

"I heard their moving to a zone read, kind of spread offense…they've had some good quarterbacks in the past. I've watched them on TV for a whole now," he said.

Miles said Morris "is a straight up dude."

"He'll tell you what it is, just straight up. He won't beat around the bush. I think he's a sincere dude," Miles said. "They've shown a lot of interest in me. Coach Morris, he's just a real laid back dude. As far as what I know, I like him."

A trip east to Clemson isn't yet on the docket.

"I don't have any plans to take any visits yet. Definitely in the summer, hopefully I can make it up to Clemson for an unofficial," he said.

What's kind of an interest does he have in the Tigers?

"They're not at the top. That's for sure. They're not at the top, because I don't know about the offense," he said. "I still have some interest in them. I can't say that they're one of my top schools."

There are five schools that are currently sticking out.

"I'll name a few. I'd say Illinois, Washington, Tennessee, Florida, CU—that's the top," Miles said.

A decision will be reached within the next three months.

"I definitely want to make a decision before senior season. It could be before the summer. It could be during the summer. I'm not sure yet," he said.

Miles completed 70 percent of his passes 2,100 yards with 20 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also rushed for 600 yards and seven touchdowns.
