South Jordan (Utah) Bingham defensive end Durrant Miles wrapped up his season and discussed how he…
Official Visit Report: Durrant Miles
"It was so crazy," he said. "I've been to Utah and BYU games. They're cool, but I've never seen so many tailgaters in my life. To be on the field before the game, hear the band playing, watch the players come out of the smoke, it gave me chills. It was a great experience."
"It was great to sit-down with Coach Petersen again," he stated. "He has a presentation that he runs through, Built For Life, and it's about how Boise State's football program prepares you for life. He had all of the slides set-up, told us what was expected, how things are run, and it was really interesting to see Coach Petersen not focused on football but about life."
"My parents absolutely love Coach Pete," he said. "It was really good for my parents to know that I'm in good hands when I go off to college," he added.
Miles was recruited as a Hybrid-DE/LB and says that position is a perfect fit for what he can do on the field.
"Me and Coach Avalos sat down and ran through some of the film," said Miles. "I got excited just watching the film. It's a perfect fit for me. What I noticed about the Boise defense is they get after it on every play. They fly around and they play with passion."
"I'm 100% committed."
It is also worth noting that the LDS age requirement for a mission has also been changed. It was recently lowered to 18 and that means the future Bronco will be able to enroll a full semester early once he arrives in Boise following his mission.
"The age requirement has been moved up one year," he said. "That means I'm going to leave for my mission as soon as I graduate HS and I'll be back for fall 'ball in 2015. It would have been spring 'ball in 2016 under the old rules. Coach Pete was real excited to hear the news. It's really a blessing for me as well."
The talented LB and his teammates are heading to the state playoffs with an 8-2 record. He says if they buckle down and work hard, a state championship is possible.
"We're heading into the playoffs this week," he said. "We just have to buckle down and work hard. I think we can win it if we can keep our head on straight."
Through 10 games, he has 11 sacks, 1 INT for a TD, and 4 pass deflections.
