Nearly a month after his high school coach confirmed a transfer was a possibility, Kenny Miles is still weighing whether his final season of college football will be played at South Carolina or elsewhere.
According to a tweet over the weekend from The State‘s Josh Kendall, the running back is still uncertain whether he will return to the Gamecocks for his senior season. Miles said he will make his final decision prior to the start of spring practice, which begins March 12.
If Miles does decide to transfer from USC, he will be eligible to play immediately this season as he graduated in December.
The reason for Miles considering a transfer is a relatively simple one: playing time. Prior to Marcus Lattimore going down to a season-ending ACL injury in mid-October, Miles had just one carry. Post-injury, Miles carried the ball 53 times in six games, including 21 carries in the regular season finale against Clemson and 15 in the bowl win over Nebraska.
For his career, Miles has rushed for 982 yards and two touchdowns.
