Before UK

Miles rushed for 4,536 total yards his junior and senior seasons at Simon Kenton HS. His senior season saw him rush for 2,227 yards and 41 total touchdowns. His junior year he rushed for 2,309 yards and 41 touchdowns, leading Simon Kenton to a state runner-up finish in Class 6A, the largest classification in Kentucky. Miles was a first-team all-state as a junior and senior by The Associated Press and Louisville Courier-Journal and player of the Year for the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area as a junior and senior by the Cincinnati Enquirer. He was the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference Player of the Year and the Kentucky Class 6A Player of the Year. He was rated among the nation’s top-100 running backs by all services and also competed on the track team in the triple jump and the 4×100- and 4×400-meter relays.

As a Wildcat

Miles came to Kentucky as a running back but was quickly moved to the Linebacker position. He is a returning starter who played the hybrid linebacker/safety spot last year as a sophomore and should see playing time considering Kentucky is lacking depth at the linebacker spot. Miles played in all 12 games last year (starting 11) and had 70 total tackles (43 solo and 27 assisted). He had a career-best 12 stops against South Carolina last year and for the season he had 4 pass breakups. In 2011 as a Redshirt Freshman, Miles played in 10 games and made five tackles.

As a Community Cat, Miles helped with the Christian Appalachian Project his freshman year (2010) and in his sophomore year (2011) he helped with the Big Blue U Move-In.
