Defensive end Nick Miles out of Mebane (N.C.) Eastern Alamance holds three scholarships. The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder is waiting patiently as he is putting together an impressive senior season.
"The year is going great," he said. "I already have five more sacks than last year. I have 12 sacks now. I'm playing a whole lot better and I'm faster on film.
"I think it's different because of the way I worked hard in the offseason. I feel like the more I play football the more experience I get. My pass rush is a whole lot better and I'm just faster, my motor is still good every game."
Miles has helped his team to an 8-2 record.
In the meantime, the big year has resulted in a big honor.
"I recently made the Shrine Bowl game," he said. "It's good to be considered one of the best 44 players in the state. I plan on going there and hopefully playing well. I want to show everybody how good I am.
"It's going to be a great opportunity to go against some great players and shine. Hopefully I can get some interest off of the game."
Speaking of the recruiting front, the lineman prospect holds offers at this time from Duke, Elon and Western Carolina.
"I like Elon a whole lot with the interest they are showing me, but I'm still waiting to see who else will offer.
"I need to send my film out still. I haven't thought about visits yet. I probably won't think about them till the season winds down."
