Will Miles End Up Just A Few Miles From Home?

North Gwinnett (GA) High School junior Donnie Miles had a chance to visit Georgia Tech two weeks ago, and while he didn't receive an offer during the trip, he was happy to see the Yellow Jackets have a lot to offer.

"It was a nice campus where I could get a good education," Donnie Miles said. As far as the football program goes, Miles said he was grateful to have the chance to see the locker room and other facilities, and he had a favorable impression of what he saw.

Coach Charles Kelly met with Miles and informed him that the coaches were waiting to see the results of Miles' SAT. If he does well, there is a good chance, according to Miles, that an offer will be extended. But Miles already has offers from both Duke and Tennessee, so he is considering those schools as well, among others.

The North Gwinnett junior plays on both sides of the ball – running back and defensive back. Georgia Tech coaches have informed him that he would be used as a defensive back if he chooses to play football in Atlanta, which Miles says he supports.

"I still have some love for running back, but I probably can play (cornerback or safety)," Miles said.

Citing the great academics and the engineering program that he'd like to pursue a major in, Miles is high on Georgia Tech. He said their great start in the 2011 season and his good relationship with Coach Kelly are also helping him feel good about the Yellow Jackets.

Kelly has asked Miles to return for a visit in the spring, and he said he would like to do so. So when Miles gets the results of his SAT, we should know more about whether or not the cornerback will get an offer from GT.
