Mullen's Miles Appears On OSU's Screen

Cyler Miles has become one of the more popular quarterback prospects in the 2012 class as the Denver (Bishop Mullen) signal caller is not only multi-talented but also a bonafide winner. Miles distinguished himself in 2010 by leading Mullen to another state title and 14-0 record. Miles, who is 6-3, 217 pounds, also displayed 4.47 speed at January's U.S. Army All-American Combine in San Antonio.

His junior season, Miles completed 150-of-212 passes for more than 2,130 yards and 20 touchdowns to just two interceptions. A two-sport athlete he also competes in track in the 100, 200, and 4x100 meter relay. He has a 10.9 in the 100 meters and also has a 37-inch vertical. Top that off with a 3.2 GPA at the private Catholic school making him a sensational prospect.

Determined to get better, Miles is getting some quarterback tutoring from former Colorado high school standout and three-year Oklahoma State starting quarterback and current Detroit Lions backup Zac Robinson.

Oklahoma State is just one of many schools that have shown interest in Miles. He already has scholarship offers from the likes of Arkansas, Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, Colorado, Colorado State, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Central Florida, Utah, and Vanderbilt.

Miles has said that he is currently trying to whittle the list of schools showing interest down to a manageable number of 5 to 7. Among his latest list of favorites are Arkansas, OU, Washington (he recently made an unofficial visit and liked it), Arizona, Illinois, Tennessee, and home state Colorado.

Oklahoma State is jumping in a little late, but Miles is very aware of the Cowboys, what they have done in recent seasons, and what kind of offense they operate out of.

"I think right now that I really have a top five or six or seven and I am just trying to firm that up and then get out there and visit those schools," said Miles.

"I'm going to try and see those schools this summer. I'm not done with the list so there is still time for a school to get on there. I did get a chance to go out and see Washington a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed with their program. I have also been up to see CU several times and I know a lot about them.

"I would definitely like to have my decision on college made before my season starts. But I don't have to have it by then. I'm going to see the schools I need to see and not slight anybody. If I have to go longer then that is what i have to do. It's okay," said Miles

The report on Miles is that he is very athletic and doesn't rush to scramble or take off and that he maintains good pocket presence. He has confidence in his ability to escape and has learned to hang in with protection and see the defense and allow pass plays to process.

His work this spring and summer is geared toward footwork and technique and working on his passing accuracy. He has high expectations of himself and a good work ethic.

There is no word on whether Oklahoma State offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Todd Monken has visited Bishop Mullen yet, but we are guessing that will come soon. Oklahoma State is showing signs of being willing to expand its recruiting map at the quarterback position as they have also shown interest in quarterback Wes Lunt of Rochester, Ill.
