Les Miles’ son Ben committed to Nebraska on Sunday via Twitter. Miles, a three-star fullback from Baton Rouge Catholic, chose the Huskers over offers from, among others, Michigan State and North Carolina.

"After completion of my high school career, I will continue in my academic and athletic endeavors at the University of Nebraska," wrote Miles, who is 6 feet 1 and 210 pounds. "I couldn't be here without the help of my family, teachers, coaches, and teammates. I'm looking forward to competing for Nebraska, but first I'm looking forward to competing for Catholic High."
LSU already has a fullback committed for its 2017 class, Tory Carter from Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County, meaning Ben Miles leaving Baton Rouge was expected. Miles is considered the No. 3 fullback nationally by 247 Sports; Carter is fourth.
