In recent days, the four-star was torn between both programs and on Wednesday, Miles said he had letters of intent from both programs and was having a tough time making a decision.
Washington won out and Miles said he couldn't be happier.
"This decision was so tough because I had to separate the fluff and what's real and my heart told me what was the right choice so I stuck with that all the way," Miles said.
The Denver Mullen quarterback had an impressive performance at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and moved all the way up to the second-best dual-threat quarterback and No. 35 prospect in the 2012 class by Rivals.com. He's No. 1 in the Colorado state rankings.
