Shuler Continues Decision Process

Four-star athlete talks about Penn State and which position he intends to play in college.

New Jersey athlete Miles Shuler says that he is nowhere near making a decision, as the highly recruited athlete continues to haul in major offers and interest from top national programs. Shuler, a four-star athlete who originally said he wanted to play as a wide receiver in college, is now contemplating a different position on Saturdays.

"I'm beginning to seriously think about playing defensive back," Shuler said. "A lot of schools are talking to me about it and it is something I am beginning to think about — that I am now interested in."

Shuler says he continues to get steady interest from Penn State, a program that offered him relatively early in the process. He's not sure about an official visit to State College, however, as he may be looking at colleges showing him a higher level of interest and programs he's not quite as familiar with.

"I don't know about taking one of my five officials to Penn State," Shuler said. "I like the program and I like what they do. The coaches are really cool and it's a great program, but I don't know about making Penn State an official visit yet. I don't have any real officials planned right now."

He did praise the Nittany Lion offense, saying that Penn State could be a good fit for him as a speedy wide receiver. Shuler also spoke about the prestige and passion around the Nittany Lions as a positive. But when he stays up at night and thinks about schools and what uniform he could be putting on next fall, there are plenty of top programs on his mind.

"Notre Dame for sure, I think about them a lot. Rutgers, they've been after me a while, and Pitt is a really good program that is saying and doing a lot of positive things," Shuler said. "Of course, I think about Florida and then Oklahoma, as well."

Shuler said he isn't going to make a decision anytime soon and will most likely take a few visits if not all of his five official visits before making a choice.

"I definitely want to see how things go this college football season; there have been a lot of changes in many programs," Shuler said. "I want to see how the season starts and how things go, plus I want to settle things in my mind as well. There's no rush, I just want to do this the right way."
