Miles seeing increased attention

Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep is home to one of the nation's most talented athletes, Nelson Agholor, but he isn't the only standout on the field.
Agholor is complimented by prospects such as linebacker Schyler Miles. With all of the attention that Agholor brings from the college ranks, it also provides opportunities for his teammates, such as Miles, to be seen.
"A lot of colleges have been coming through," Miles said. "We have had at least three or four coaches every day at practice. They are mainly watching Nelson, but he has been telling them about me."
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound inside linebacker also believes that the presence of college coaches acts as motivation for he and his teammates during the spring season.
"I think it gives us more of a drive in practice and we work harder because everyone is trying to impress the scouts," Miles said. "It has a positive effect on the team."
Three days into spring practice, the early returns are positive for the Berkeley Prep squad.
"It has been going real well," Miles said. "We have our first day in helmets and shoulder pads tomorrow. We have just been working on conditioning and position drills so far."
As for some of the attention that Agholor has helped bring to his teammates, it has resulted in three schools showing Miles new attention as of this week.
"I heard from North Carolina yesterday and Rutgers today and a little bit from an Oklahoma coach," Miles said.
Prior to the spring, Miles had been hearing from a few schools already.
"I have been keeping in contact with UCLA. I have been talking to their linebackers coach and their recruiting coordinator. I am actually supposed to call them later tonight," Miles said. "I have also talked with a coach from Maryland, about a month ago. He said he was going to come down and see me during my spring. Both of those schools have invited me to their camps."
"I have also been hearing from UCF and Georgia Tech," Miles added. "They haven't come through yet this spring."
Miles, who is still waiting on his first offer, said he is definitely visiting UCLA this summer and would also like to visit Georgia Tech, Rutgers, and possibly others.
Academically, he has a 3.0 GPA and is scheduled to take the SAT this weekend.
