Miles Still Focused On Three

Canton McKinley was in action Saturday in scrimmage action against Marion Harding. Senior defensive end Antoine Miles was impressive for the Bulldogs. He talked recruiting following the scrimmage.

Antoine Miles is a three-star prospect from Canton McKinley, and the 6-foot-3, 275-pound, defensive end impressed Saturday in a scrimmage with Marion Harding.

"I think our team is getting better and we are ready for the season," Miles stated. "Next week, we scrimmage Cleveland St. Ignatius, and that will be a good test for us. I told everybody not to get big-headed over one scrimmage, because we need to work even harder."

"I'm a senior leader and I learned from guys like Steve Miller and Se'Von Pittman," he added. "I try to lead by example, because when I'm playing well, everyone seems to feed off my energy. I try to lead in practice. I played alright in this scrimmage, but I focused more on technique. I got off the ball well, but I need to be better at a left-hand stance."

Miles holds several Division-I offers, and has been favoring three schools for quite a while. A decision could be coming in September.

"Recruiting has gone good, and I still have my three top schools in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and West Virginia," he explained. "I've really been speaking to Cincinnati a lot and I want to take the time to go check out their campus. I haven't been to West Virginia yet, and I'd love to get there too. I'm going to try to get to a game for sure. I've been to Pittsburgh twice and I love it there."

"I'm still thinking about getting this done during my season, probably around the fourth week," he continued. "If I can get to Cincinnati and West Virginia before that, I might be able to decide sooner, but I'm not sure about that."

EVALUATION: Miles has always been looked at as a tweener on the defensive line, but after seeing him Saturday it looks like he will play defensive tackle at the next level. He will probably play in the area of 290-pounds at the college level, making him a perfect inside player with his quickness.
