Things could get a little uncomfortable at the Miles dinner table the next few nights.
Manny Miles, a three-star quarterback for the recruiting class of 2015 and also LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles’ son, made a decision on where he’ll be attending college and playing football the next few years, and it’s not going to be for his dad.
Instead, he’s opting to be a preferred walk-on for Larry Fedora and the North Carolina Tar Heels.

“This was something that took a lot of time and thinking about lots of talks with the parents,” said Manny, who stands at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds and has dual-threat capabilities. “It felt right when I went there, and their coaches were great. So when I came back, I just thought it would be a great place for me. They run similar things that our high school did, and I felt like I fit that system right, so might as well stay in it for a couple more years.”
According to the report, Manny was also considering Michigan—which is where Les previously said “he’d love” for him to go, with it being his alma mater.
Les Miles took his son Manny (a qb prospect) to see U-M on a family trip 3 years ago: “I would love to see him at Michigan.” #SMSBFootball
