ATH Looking to Transfer to Boulder?

Former Adams City High star athlete Lenny Miles wants to transfer back home to Colorado and walk on for both the CU football and basketball teams, according to a report in the <i>Boulder Daily Camera</i>. Miles is apparently unhappy at the University of New Mexico, where he played basketball as a true freshman last year.

Miles was listed as 6-2, 195-pounds last season for the Lobos' basketball team. He was one of only two players on Coach Ritchie McKay's team to play in all 28 games, starting six and averaging 2.9 ppg.

If Miles did transfer to CU, he would be eligible to play football in the fall, but would have to sit out a transfer year per NCAA rules before playing basketball. CU coaches are not allowed to talk to Miles or about the situation, according to NCAA rules.

Miles was recruited heavily by the Buffs in football coming out of the Commerce City high school. He played running back, defensive back and some quarterback, and was clocked in the 4.4-4.5 range in the 40-yard dash. He also excelled at basketball, and eventually accepted a scholarship to UNM.

However, it appears that Miles' transfer is dependant on him completing course work this summer at Metro State in Denver. Although, according to the Camera, Miles is academically eligible by the NCAA, he needs to finish the summer course work before McKay would grant him a release from his scholarship.
