One of Vanderbilt’s top early targets, who plays a position of need for Vanderbilt, is Miles Jones. Jones, American Heritage High School, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, stands at 5’9” and 170 pounds. Even though Jones may seem small, his versatility and speed more than make up for it. Jones helped lead American Heritage to an undefeated season and a state championship. Miles started the season playing the slot and kickoff return, but a couple of games into the season he emerged as the starting running back for the powerhouse high school. He finished with 1,315 all-purpose yards and seven touchdowns on the season.
The biggest thing Miles wants to work on going into his senior season is his receiving. He wants to become a better slot receiver and a better receiver out of the backfield. When I asked Miles what is the biggest asset he would bring to a college team, Miles said, “Versatility, I think I can be used the same way West Virginia used Tavon Austin.”
