Bingham (South Jordan, Utah) High linebacker Durrant Miles committed to Boise State on Tuesday, he told the Idaho Statesman. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Miles, a senior to be, plans to go on an LDS mission before enrolling at Boise State.
"I just knew it was my place to go when I met all the coaches," said Miles, who attended junior day and summer camp at Boise State. "Coach (Chris) Pete(rsen), he’s got it all figured out. I loved the facilities, loved everything up there. Everything about Boise told me I need to be there."
Miles said Boise State recruited him to play "stud" linebacker, the same position Shea McClellin played last season. McClellin was a first-round draft pick by the Chicago Bears in April.
"I couldn’t believe it," Miles said. "Their whole defense is basically run around that."
Miles was at Boise State on Friday. The Broncos offered him a scholarship on Monday, Miles said. He had offers from Utah State and Hawaii and was scheduled to visit Utah with his parents Wednesday. Miles said he is not going to make that trip.
"He's one of the best leaders I've ever coached. I feel like he's a no-brainer," said Bingham coach Dave Peck.
