Tigers offer dual-threat quarterback from Colorado

by - Senior Writer -

Clemson offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Chad Morris is looking everywhere for his next quarterback, and he has proved his reach shows no bounds.

It has been rumored that Morris plans to take just one quarterback in the 2012 recruiting class, and he has given offers to players from Florida to New York and from South Carolina to Texas as he searches for the perfect signal caller for his spread offense.

One of his latest offers is to dual-threat quarterback Cyler Miles Cyler Miles

, from Denver (CO) Mullen, who says he was surprised when Morris first made contact.

“I am not really sure how he found me,” Miles told TigerNet. “I am not sure how he went about finding me, but I guess he saw film and liked what he saw. I was surprised a little bit, because that is so far from home. I didn’t think there would be any interest, but I am glad that he did. I know that Clemson is a great program and he is a great coach.”

The 6-2, 217-pounder said that his knowledge of Clemson isn’t extensive.

“Being all the way out here, I don’t know too much about them,” he said. “I knew that they were in the ACC and a powerhouse in their conference, and I know they have a lot of good players. I know about Da’Quan Bowers, of course, and I know they had C.J. Spiller a couple of years ago. But that’s about it.”

Miles threw 20 touchdown passes as a junior - against only two interceptions – and led his high school to a 14-0 record and a Colorado state championship. He also used his 4.47-second 40-yard dash time to run for over 600 yards.

As a result, he has offers from Clemson, Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Colorado, Illinois, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Central Florida, Utah, Vanderbilt and Washington.

He said that Morris makes sure the two stay in constant contact.

“He writes me all the time,” Miles said of Morris. “I hear from him almost every day. He sends me messages on Facebook, and every now and then I will give him a call. He really seems like he wants me at Clemson, and I know they really only want one guy this year, so that is very attractive to me.”

He said that Arkansas, Illinois, Clemson, Washington and Arizona are his favorites right now, and he hopes to take some more visits over the late spring and summer.

“I want to find a school that I can see myself at for the next four or five years,” he said. “I want to go into sports psychology or possibly business, so they have to have good academics. I just want to go to a place where I feel comfortable.”
