Miles happy with decision

Four-star quarterback Cyler Miles has committed to Washington, giving the Huskies two quality signal-callers in the 2012 class as Miles joins three-star Jeff Lindquist out of Mercer Island, Wash.
That the Huskies had another quarterback already committed did not make Miles, from Denver (Colo.) Mullen, hesitate in the least bit when formulating his decision. Miles said he knows there will be competition wherever he goes and he's looking forward to it when he gets to Seattle.
"That wasn't a factor at all," Miles said. "Wherever you go there are going to be quarterbacks there and I think the best guy is going to play.
"They told me that and I believe them. Lindquist committing is not a factor at all. It's about competition and I'm going to go up there and compete."
What played a big factor for Miles, who also had Tennessee and Illinois among his favorites, was Washington's coaching staff - especially coach Steve Sarkisian, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier and others who helped influence his decision.
Miles' comfort level with the coaching staff and his unofficial visit to Washington really sealed it for the Huskies.
"I was very comfortable with the decision," Miles said. "I wouldn't have made it if I wasn't 100 percent sure about what I was doing. It was between some good programs and some good schools but I just felt Washington was the best fit for me. Not to say the other programs weren't good but for me I thought they were the best fit.
"It came down to the people I was going to be around at Washington and the relationships and the sincerity of the coaches. It was all great and everything fell into place after I visited there."
Rivals.com rates Miles, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound dual-threat quarterback, No. 160 in the 2012 class. He threw for 2,130 yards with 20 touchdowns and only two interceptions in his junior season and helped lead Denver Mullen to a 14-0 record.
