Trib Prospect: Woodland Hills' Miles Sanders
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Woodland Hills' Miles Sanders used his receiving skills to earn top honors among running backs at the Rivals Camp Series last weekend in Columbus, Ohio. The sophomore's catching ability was key to being named position MVP.
“He won out in the end because of the consistency with which he was able to get open in one-on-ones,” said Adam Friedman, the mid-Atlantic recruiting analyst at Rivals.com. “He was able to run routes and pull away from defenders. It was good to see his explosiveness in space and his ability to catch the ball.”
Sanders, who has Pitt among his early offers, helped Woodland Hills reach the WPIAL Class AAAA final and also started as a freshman.
“When I saw him in person this time, he'd added a lot of good muscle to his frame,” said Friedman, who watched last year's championships at Heinz Field.
Sanders was ranked second among offensive players at the Rivals camp, behind only wideout Alex Stump of St. Edward High School near Cleveland. With time, Sanders should become a national recruit.
