Nebraska is one of the few offenses in the country that uses a fullback in more than a blocking role. As a result, it’s a desirable destination for fullback recruits.

That apparently outweighs blood.

Ben Miles, the son of LSU coach Les Miles, chose not to play for his dad. Instead, the 2017 fullback announced that he’s coming to Lincoln:

The three-star recruit is the No. 3 fullback in the 2017 class. The Louisiana native is rated No. 1,752 overall in the 247sports composite.

The 6-1, 210-pound fullback became the 12th member of Mike Riley’s 2017 class, which now features nine different states.

That’s a nice addition for a Nebraska class that has potential to make a serious jump during the fall. Nebraska currently sits at No. 32 overall in the 247sports class rankings, but several four and five-star prospects have visits to Lincoln for the Sept. 17 game against Oregon.

Ben Miles wasn’t the first in the family to turn down LSU. His older brother, Manny, is a redshirt freshman quarterback at North Carolina.
