One of the most sought after dual threat quarterbacks in the land coming out of high school, Cyler Miles offers a tantalizing combination of accuracy and elusiveness. He should be a worthy successor to the departed Keith Price.
While a prep, Miles was named first-team All-Colorado by the Denver Post, named co-MVP of the U.S. Army All-America Bowl after completing 7-of-8 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for one score. As a senior, he was ranked the No. 1 recruit in Colorado and No. 35 overall prospect in the nation, as well as the No. 2 dual-threat QB in the nation by rivals.com.
After redshirting the 2012 season, where he traveled and dressed with the team, Miles got his feet wet in 2013, playing in eight games and starting one – the Oregon State game. The hint that he might be something pretty good came in the UCLA game when he played the entire second half for the injured Keith Price, completing 15-of-22 passes for 149 yards, two scores and two interceptions.
Miles finished the 2013 season with a stat line that read 37-of-61 for 418 yards and four scores. He was intercepted twice.
Now the job appears to by Miles’ to do with as he will. A unique blend of passing ability and speed, he follows nicely in the lineage of Jake Locker and Price. There are more than a few who think he may be the most complete run-pass package the Huskies have had to date. In 2014, he’ll get a chance to see if he belongs in that rarified Husky air.
