(AP) Ben Miles, the son of LSU coach Les Miles, says he's going to Nebraska to play his college football in 2017.

One of the top-rated fullbacks in the nation, the coach's son announced his pledge on Twitter on Sunday. Miles, who will be a senior this fall at Catholic High in Baton Rouge, picked Nebraska over offers from LSU, Michigan State and Boston College, among others.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Miles attended Nebraska spring game in April. Coach Mike Riley has said the fullback would have a more extensive role as his offense evolves at Nebraska.

Manny Miles, Les Miles' other son, is a redshirt freshman quarterback at North Carolina.
