Les Miles' son commits to Nebraska over LSU
Known as an elite recruiter, LSU head coach Les Miles must not have made the full pitch to his son Ben, as the three-star Baton Rouge fullback has committed to Nebraska despite holding a scholarship offer from the Tigers.
Ben Miles announced his commitment via Twitter Sunday afternoon:
Thank you God… GBR! pic.twitter.com/nBM0l25Xq5

The younger Miles, listed at 6-foot-1, 210-pound, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and the nation’s No. 2 fullback prospect. Miles also held offers from Boston College, Michigan State, Navy and Purdue.
Considering the Tigers will often use a fullback in Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s system, it may surprise many that Ben would not go with LSU. However the Tigers already have a highly regarded fullback committed to the 2017 class in Tory Carter and are projected to have as many as six fullbacks on the roster next season.
