Draft Scout Miles Shuler News
08/26/13 - Rutgers wide receiver Miles Shuler has played his last game with the Scarlet Knights, and will be transferring. Rutgers coach Kyle Flood announced the news on Friday. "I just feel like I have a better future at a different school," Shuler told The Star-Ledger. "Don't get me wrong, I love Rutgers, I love the University, I love the team, I went through training camp and they're going to do really well against Fresno State and have a great season this year." Flood said he and Shuler went over a few different options but "he felt this was something he needed to do. I respect that and I wish him well."
Shuler came to Rutgers as a four-star recruit in its 2011 class -- the last class put together by Greg Schiano -- but things never worked out quite as well as either side hoped they would. Shuler appeared in seven games as a freshman without catching a pass, though he did rush for 42 yards. In 2012 Shuler caught only five passes for 71 yards. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
08/23/13 - Miles Shuler will transfer from Rutgers, head coach Kyle Flood announced today. Shuler, a four-star recruit out of Long Branch, will leave the school after two nondescript years in the program. "He's been a big part of our program," Flood said. "We wish him well and we wish him success." At Rutgers, Shuler struggled. He failed to catch any passes his freshman season despite playing in seven games. As a sophomore last season, Shuler caught five passes for 71 yards and ran the ball once for 25 yards.
He entered training camp caught in the depth chart amid a slew of receivers. With the presence of Brandon Coleman, Quron Pratt and the expected emergence of Leonte Carroo, Shuler's role was uncertain. "For us there was no uncertainty about he would have fit in," Flood said. "He would have had a fairly significant role here. That role would have been a combination of kickoff return, it would have been a combination of punt block. It would have been a flyer on punt and kickoff coverage. A role on offense. "In the end, for Miles, it wasn't really the role he was looking for. We discussed a couple different options. But he felt this was something he needed to do. I respect that and I wish him well."
Shuler came to Rutgers with some acclaim, having earned high marks from scouting services and coming with superlative speed. He won state titles in the 100-meter and 55-meter dashes as a high school sprinter. - Mike Vorkunov, The Star-Ledger
