2018 WR Miles Battle Back from UOV to Texas as they host WV

Miles Battle checks in at 6-foot-4, 183-pounds out of Houston (Texas) Cy-Creek. Battle holds early offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Houston and Michigan State to name a few.

“I had a great time at Texas,” Miles Battle said.  “The food was great and the treat the recruits well.  I think both sides of the ball made great plays during the game, but some turnovers down the stretch may be the reason for the Texas loss. “


Battle was able to spend some time with the Texas coaching staff earlier today.


“I talked with Coach Traylor, Williams, and Mike Giglio,” Battle said.  “The atmosphere was great.  The people in Austin are extremely nice and love football.  I also got to hang out with Leon O’Neal, Taye Barber, and Jah’marae Sheread.  Even though Texas lost I was still impressed with the way fans held the spirit and the team never gave up.  They continued to show that Texas fight through the whole game.”


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 ability 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
