How'd He Get to College Park?

Miles didn't take the typical path to a spot on Maryland's football team. After graduating high school, Miles joined the Army and served for four years, earning an astounding number of medals while deployed in Afghanistan:

  • National Defense Medal
  • Army Service Ribbon
  • Overseas Ribbon
  • Global War on Terrorism Medal
  • Afghanistan Campaign with Star Ribbon
  • Good Conduct Medal
  • Army Achievement Medal
  • Army Commendation Medal
  • Combat Action Badge
  • Meritorious Unit Citation
  • Expert Rifleman Badge

He made the team as a 22-year-old walk-on freshman in 2013, but the NCAA ruled him ineligible because he had not taken the necessary core classes in high school. Maryland filed a waiver on his behalf and Miles was cleared to practice but not play in games.

After two season with the program, Miles has yet to see the field in a game. He has served as a member of the scout team offense and special teams squads.

Career Highlight:

Being cleared by the NCAA to play college football.

Dream Season:

Miles sees collegiate playing time.

2015 Prospectus:

Miles probably won't see any time on offense, but as a junior could realistically become a regular special teams contributor. He has the raw strength and athleticism to chase down and lay out kick and punt returners.

Up Next:

Our next subject caught his first career pass in 2014 against Wisconsin.
