What's next for Shuler?

On Wednesday talented junior athlete Miles Shuler received an offer from West Virginia.

It was the 10th such offer he has received since September 1, when college coaches were first able to put scholarships in writing.

The 5-foot-11, 173-pound athlete from Long Branch, N.J., had received an offer from Michigan the previous week, so his stock is still climbing rapidly.

"I was expecting this but not this early," Shuler said of the flurry of offers. "I didn't know they'd come this soon. I'm surprised but grateful. I'm really excited about this recruiting process."

The Mountaineers and Wolverines certainly aren't alone in thinking highly of Shuler. He had already drawn offers from schools in the ACC, Big East and Big Ten.

"(Wednesday) I was speaking to the Florida Gators," Shuler said. "I was speaking to coach (Chuck) Heater. We had a great conversation and we should be in contact again in the future.

"I'm also in contact with Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State. We'll see what happens with those."

Shuler said colleges are recruiting him to play either wide receiver or running back. They have told him he could play in the slot and also line up in the backfield as a Percy Harvin-type player.
