You’d think this would be the easiest recruiting sell of Les Miles’ career.
Manny Miles, the son of LSU’s head coach, is a quarterback prospect in the Class of 2015.
He’s not a top recruit — 247Sports rates him at three stars as a 5-foor-11, 170-pound pro-style QB — but still a very good player, and he’s entering the time of his high school career where the college offers are going to roll in. Next February, he will decide where he wants to play football.
LSU would seem to be a very likely destination for the Miles boy, right? Not so fast, he told his dad.
“I would love to see him at Michigan,” Miles told the Detroit News. “The first place that I took him to tour was Michigan, and he fell in love with the place. He said, ‘Dad, I know why you went here.’”
Hey, if Les Miles can get Paul Mainieri on board, maybe LSU has a Godfather offer after all that Manny won’t be able to refuse.
