What would you do if you were the son of one of the most successful college football coaches of the last ten years? What if your dad coached a perennial powerhouse in the arguably the best conference in college football? What if you were being recruited to play football for you dad’s team and you made a decision to play elsewhere?
Well, that is the exact predicament three-star quarterback Manny Miles, son of LSU head coach Les Miles, has been in for the last year. According to College Spun, the younger Miles made the decision to play at North Carolina rather than LSU or Michigan, Les’s alma mater. Manny talked with Jerit Roser who took to Twitter to report.

LSU is currently in the middle of a quarterback competition between Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris, both who split starting time during the 2014 season. Harris emerged LSU’s starter after the spring training sessions.
Michigan on the other hand currently has five quarterbacks to choose from for the upcoming season. Neither the Tigers or the Wolverines will be hurting for quarterback depth as a result of missing the boat on Miles.
The Tar Heels will greatly benefit from Miles’s talents. UNC have been missing a consistent quarterback since losing TJ Yates and Bryn Renner to the NFL. Miles will come in and immediately begin to compete for a starting position. Now we just need to hope that the Tigers schedule the Tar Heels in the future.
