Nebraska plucks another from Ohio

Defensive lineman Antoine Miles (Canton, Ohio/McKinley) committed today to play for coach Bo Pelini and the Cornhuskers, according to multiple reports. He is Nebraska's fifth verbal from Ohio for 2013.

The 6-foot-2, 257-pound senior also received scholarship offers from Bowling Green, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Northern Illinois, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Toledo and West Virginia. Louisville, Michigan State and Syracuse showed interest.

This spring on the Nike Combine circuit, Miles posted an electronically timed 5.12 40-yard dash, 4.58 20-yard shuttle, 25.8-inch vertical and 74.82 SPARQ. He will be evaluated soon by ESPN.

Following Miles' decision, Nebraska has 16 pledges.
