LSU's Les Miles offers his FB-prospect son a scholarship
Les Miles' oldest son Manny became a walk-on quarterback at North Carolina. His daughter Smacker (yes, what an awesome name) is a swimmer at the University of Texas.
With two of his children leaving the greater Baton Rouge area, Miles will do everything he can to keep his son Ben at home.
Miles on recruiting Ben's parents for #LSU: "The dad is sold."— Ross Dellenger (@DellengerAdv) September 2, 2015
A 2017 recruit from Baton Rouge's Catholic High School, Miles offered his son a scholarship to attend LSU on his seventeenth birthday.
The head coach was asked about his son Wednesday afternoon. Miles said, "We have established a relationship over time. I was there when he was born."

Miles' son is a legitimate fullback prospect. He figures to be utilized extensively under his father as a blocker, assuming the younger Miles opts to attend LSU.
For those other Division 1 coaches recruiting Ben Miles, good luck. One would think Les Miles is pretty confident in landing this recruit.
