09/09/2012 - WR/returner Jamal Miles became the ASU career leader in kick return yards with a 31-yard return to open the game against Illinois. He finished the game with 1,564 yards in kick returns.
09/08/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Jamal Miles has missed the past two games for non-injury reasons (including the bowl game last season), but he is expected to play Saturday vs. Illinois. He's the team's leading returning receiver from last season and one of the most dangerous return men in the country. "I have all the confidence in the world that he is going to come back and play great and be a leader," said coach Todd Graham. - The Sports Xchange
08/30/2012 - Senior WR/RET Jamal Miles seemed limited in practice late in camp with an undisclosed injury. Maybe not against NAU, but the Sun Devils will need him soon as one of the top playmakers in the conference. - The Sports Xchange
08/07/2012 - AREAS OF CONCERN: The receiving corps is thin, including the loss of leading wideout Gerell Robinson (1,397 yards last season). Three of the top four pass-catchers are gone, with only Jamal Miles having proven game-breaking skills. The combination of inexperience from the receivers and behind center could put undue pressure on ASU's running game. The Devils are thin at linebacker besides of senior Brandon Magee. - The Sports Xchange
07/18/2012 - Top-five Arizona State prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. WR Jamal Miles (5-10, 180)...Possessing the agility to make defenders miss as well as good straight-line and vision, Miles has the athleticism to explode in 2012 despite less than eye-popping statistics throughout his career. Valued more for his versatility than his ability to stretch the field by Erickson's staff, Miles saw time in the backfield, in the slot, outside and as a return specialist in 2012, earning First Team all-conference honors as a punt returner. He was the only player in the country last season to score a touchdown as a receiver, kick returner, punt returner and passer and in averaging a gaudy 8.2 yards per carry (on 29 attempts), frankly its a surprise that he was kept out of the endzone as a runner. Erickson preferred big, lanky receivers on the outside and the relationship between Osweiler and Gerell Robinson blossomed in 2011, with the 6-3, 227 pounder leading the Pac-12 with 1,397 receiving yards last season. Though Miles finished second behind only Robinson in catches for the Sun Devils last season (with 60), by design the vast majority of his routes were short and he averaged just six yards per reception. Graham and his staff have committed to using Miles more liberally and frankly, considering that ASU lost four of their top six pass catchers from a year ago, they have few other options ready to contribute. As such, expect a breakout campaign from Miles in 2012 and a steady move up draft boards. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
