Monday night notes — Miles says he’s solid to UW

No new Huskies so far tonight, something that won’t be the case the next two days.

But there was a little bit of news of a reconfirmed Husky as quarterback Cyler Miles of Mullen High in Denver told several media outlets — including the Times — that he remains a solid commit to the Huskies and will sign with UW on Wednesday.

“Yeah, it is (solid),” Miles wrote in a text message to the Times tonight when asked about his commitment to UW. He wrote further that his in-home visit with UW coaches this weekend went well and that there is no further doubt that he will sign with the Huskies.

Miles committed to UW in June and had said throughout he was solid to UW, though he took visits to Florida and Illinois, which were his other two finalists before picking the Huskies initially. But it caught recruiting observers a little by surprise when he decided to take a trip to USC the weekend before last. Miles, though, said the trip was just to check things out and make sure of his decision to sign with the Huskies.

I wrote earlier today about Miles and fellow QB commit Jeff Lindquist and how they’ll fit into the quarterback spot beginning next season.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Here’s my story for the Tuesday paper wrapping up what may be ahead for UW the next two days.

— Times columnist Steve Kelley says losing some in-state recruits this year doesn’t indicate problems with the UW program. just bad luck and timing.

— A reminder that I’ll be joined by Mason Kelley for another recruiting chat tomorrow (Tuesday) at noon.

— Some good stuff here on Jaydon Mickens, Brandon Beaver and lots of other commits in an ESPNLA.com story.

— Cal and UCLA are two of the five recruiting classes to watch by the National Football Post.

— The San Francisco Chronicle has some thoughts on what’s happened to Cal’s class with the loss of Tosh Lupoi, and the QB who didn’t waver.

— Former UW president and now NCAA president Mark Emmert says he’s in favor of a four-team playoff.

— Finally, with about 32 hours now left until LOI Day, UW’s class is rated tied for 42nd nationally and tied for ninth in the Pac-12 by Rivals.com and 46th and ninth by Scout.com. Obviously, the addition of Shaq Thompson, Mickens, Payton and a few others could change that in a good way for the Huskies, which is the hope now.
