WR Miles Battle Under the Lights Preview

It’s never too early to start thinking about the class of 2018. On Saturday night, wide receiver Miles Battle will attend Under the Lights with Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. The 6-foot-4, 183-pound wide receiver checks in from Houston (Texas) Cypress Creek High School.

Three-star wide receiver Miles Battle is one to watch.  With excellent body control, frame and route running skills he has a high ceiling.  Battle will get a chance to show what he can do Saturday night during Under the Lights.


“I’m very excited to be at the Under the Lights event at Texas,” Miles Battle said.  “I hope to see the campus that I heard is very nice. And from the coaches, I would like to see that they are interested in me and want to coach me.  Charlie Strong is a great coach. He’s turning the Texas program around for the better. I think there are big things coming from Texas in the future. Also, they have an amazing education system that is very well respected. I spoke with Mike Giglio, the Director of Player Personnel.”


Why is Battle a dangerous wide receiver?


“I’m best on the deep ball and high-pointing it in the air,” Battle said.  “I’m working on my shorter routes, selling my fakes and attacking the ball.”

Scout.com Take


Miles Battle is a big-framed receiver prospect who projects to the Power Five conference level. At 6-foot-4, Battle possesses an outstanding frame and will add bulk as he matures. Battle is a good route-runner and a chain-mover thanks to his ability to get open in short-to-intermediate situations. He's also a downfield threat because of his size and ball-winning ability. Battle is a great red-zone target who possesses a huge catch radius and the height to overwhelm smaller defenders. He also flashes the capacity to be able to adjust to the ball in the air. He can improve his top-end speed and elusiveness after the catch, but has a frame you can't teach and will garner plenty of high-major offers because of that and his knack to get open. -- Gabe Brooks
