Rivals.com is reporting that Rob Ash and his Montana State football staff are recruiting Miles Weathory of Jesuit high school in Portland Oregon. Weatheroy is a 6-1, 170 pound prospect who played both wide receiver and defensive back in high school but is mainly being recruited as an athlete.
Weatheroy was named Honorable Mention Metro league on the defensive side of the ball. Additionally he has only recently decided to give track a try and has this year put personal bests of 11.45 in the 100 meters, 19’10.5″ long jump and 43’2.5″ triple jump.
As far as football related stats Weatheroy reportedly runs a 4.5 in the 40 yard dash, a 34 inch vertical jump and a 280 max bench press.
Chris Courtney of Cougfan.com (part of the scout.com network) had the following observations about Weatheroy:
Jesuit athlete Miles Weatheroy is endowed with wonderful athletic ability and football instincts. It’s difficult to project where Weatheroy will end up, but it appears as if he’s best suited for defense, where Weatheroy can take advantage of his superior speed and ball skills. During today’s camp, he showed great skill in tracking and attacking the football while in flight. Though he will need to bulk up and display more of a physical mentality, Weatheroy could be a diamond waiting to be discovered.
Oregon, Oregon State and Portland State seem to be recruiting Weatheroy the hardest currently but Air Force, Army, Idaho State, Montana State, and Princeton are showing an interest. Weatheroy is an excellent student so expect many more of the Ivy league schools to show an interest as the summer continues.
