Miles attends Long Beach High School in New Jersey, and thrives at both football and track. Coming into his senior season, Miles has created an astounding amount of buzz because of his great junior film, which numerous D-1 programs have gotten a hold of.

I had the privilege of watching his tape. I was taken aback at his ability to make a play out of nothing. Quentin Gause, who I evaluated prior to Miles, uses more of a brute type strength to get past defenders. Miles uses his shiftiness and fluent cutbacks to break through the defense.

His coaches at Long Beach use Miles at the quarterback position because every play starts with him. At first, I underestimated his throwing credentials but I quickly ate my words when I saw the first pass. He possesses a decent arm but uses his speed well while throwing. His passes don’t have much zip but he still has great accuracy with the majority of his throws.

With Shuler's type of speed and playmaking ability, there was no doubt the LBHS coaches would keep his talents restricted to just passing plays. For about 70% of the plays on his tape, Miles was running out of the backfield instead of passing from it.

This proved to be a wise decision because Shuler is as elusive as they come. As he juked and sliced every defender he faced, it became apparent that even the best defenses in the league could only hope to contain him. To add to his lateral quickness, Shuler is also the proud owner of a (4.2) 40 time.

Verdict: With countless offers coming in for Shuler, he will have to start to narrow down his college choices. After attending many junior days already, coaches have had a chance to woo him even before an official visit may be made by the star junior. In the upcoming months, Shuler will have to make some important decisions, but I don’t doubt they’ll be the right ones for him.
