There are plenty of great athletes associated with the number 24. And, as luck would have it, today marks 24 days until Boise State football and brunch (reminder: kickoff is at 10 a.m. Mountain). So with today being that day, let us review—Kameron Miles
#24, Kameron Miles, RS Junior, S
Height: 6’ 1”
Weight: 208 lbs
High School: West Mesquite High School, Mesquite, TX (Butler CC)
How'd he get to the Blue™?
By way of the Texas A&M express. And former Defensive Coordinator Marcel Yates. Mr. Kameron Miles initially started his FBS career at the SEC Aggies and redshirted while Mr. Yates was the Co-Defensive Coordinator. Then Yates left for the bluer pastures of Boise State and Mr. Miles (kind of) followed (Miles had been removed from the team for violation of team rules). Miles had to burn a year of eligibility at Butler CC before coming to Boise State and seeing the field last year.
Out of high school he was a four star safety per ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. He had offers from the likes of Tennessee, Stanford, and Penn State. Out of the JUCO he was a Scout 100 prospect, and no. 28 per 247Sports.
Because he, undoubtedly, goes full speed at all times.

As a Bronco Mr. Miles was in 12 games last year. He had 25 total tackles (17 solo), two forced fumbles, and half a tackle for loss. In his JUCO year he had 50 tackles (27 solo) and four and a half tackles for loss. His high school highlights were a laundry list that included being a U.S. Army All-American, and first-team All-District 10-4A (among other accolades).
Defensive back is going to be a close one this year. With life events happening, and the super-thin depth, lots of guys are going to be getting playing time that they may not have otherwise gotten. What is interesting is the schematic change that the Broncos have decided to incorporate. The transition back to a 4-3 and the “loss” of the nickel position. Now it is going to be the SLB. With that transition Mr. Miles is now behind Tanner Vallejo for that spot. Mr. Miles has a versatility that allows him to shift from the would-be nickel back to safety if need be (Miles started the Northern Illinois game in place of Dylan Sumner-Gardner). We don’t know what the first game is going to hold for us in terms of the defensive backs, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Mr. Miles will start against Louisiana—as safety.
Is he on Twitter?

Completely NOT made up fact
Leonardo da Vinci could simultaneously write with one hand and draw with the other. Kameron Miles can simultaneously ruin the day of the offense and their coaches.
