Mebane (NC) Eastern Alamance defensive line recruit Nick Miles has been hearing from NC State and will give serious consideration to the Wolfpack.
For its part, the Pack has shown increased interest in Miles, possibly because of a solid showing at a couple of Shrine Bowl combines.
At Eastern Alamance, the rising senior was measured at 6-2, 230 pounds and ran a respectable, 4.79-second 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 26.9-inch vertical jump and 18 reps of 185 pounds on the bench press. Miles chose to work out as a defensive lineman that day and performed well- showing a good motor and nice explosion at the point of attack.
At South Central High School a week later, Miles worked out at linebacker and may actually be better suited for that position on the next level.
Pack Pride caught up with Miles recently for the latest on the Pack's interest in his talents. While NC State has not offered Miles a scholarship yet it appears as though the coaches will be evaluating Miles over the summer and beyond.
"I've started receiving letters from Stanford and I hear from NC State," Miles said. "They (NC State) called , they're going to start recruiting me. That's a school I would be interested in."
NC State isn't the only school that will be evaluating Miles. Duke offered him a while back, and as he mentioned, Stanford is taking a hard look. He also likes Wake Forest.
"I like Wake Forest a whole lot. They have good academics and treat their players well. I like their weight lifting (program) too," he noted.
Miles said he has spoken to coaches from NC State on the phone twice. He said he will call the coaches again soon to let them know he will be camping at the school over the summer. He also plans on camping at Duke and Wake Forest, and admitted that "more schools could come into play" as well.
The soon-to-be senior said he sees himself making his decision just before the start of his senior season at Eastern Alamance. That will give some other schools a chance to decide whether they plan on offering.
