A solid National Signing Day for Washington continued with the Huskies winning a late tug-of-war with USC for quarterback Cyler Miles.
An athletic 6'4", 215-pound prospect from Denver's Mullen High School, Miles committed to Steve Sarkisian last June but considered switching to the Trojans and Lane Kiffin late. In the end, Miles stuck with his commitment to keep the Huskies' 2012 class at 24 members.
That Miles' decision came at the Trojans' expense no doubt makes it particularly sweet for Husky fans, but Miles' skills are reason for enthusiasm alone. Miles ranks as the No. 6 "combo quarterback" in the nation according to Maxpreps, and the 2012 class's No. 102 player overall. Tom Lemming's assessment for Maxpreps:
He looked good down in San Antonio, throws a nice catchable ball and runs better than just about any QB in the country. He's a major threat with both his arm and his legs ... He shows great vision, speed, arm strength, accuracy, and quickness. What more can you ask for in a big-time QB? Not to mention size. He has proven to be one of the country's more athletic QB's, has a strong build, and throws accurately while on the run. He is a legitimate difference maker at the QB position. I was impressed with his ability to thread the needle, hit his receivers on the numbers and using his all around quickness and speed to keep the play going until he finds open receivers.
From the Twitter feed of the Denver Post's Ryan Casey, Miles signing alongside some of his teammates:
The Huskies are currently ranked 24th in the CBS Sports National Signing Day top 25.
