Following a stellar sophomore campaign at West Orange High in 2023, three-star wide receiver Larry Miles announced via his X account that he will be transferring to Jones High in the fall. 

"Just wanted to thank coach Geno Thompson for giving me amazing opportunities, helping me become who I am today," Miles said in his social media post. "But for better opportunities for me and my family, for the next two years of high school, I will be transferring to the great Jones High School."

With offers from the likes of Miami, UCF, Iowa, Michigan St. and Arkansas, to name a few, Miles quickly established himself as a certified prospect. 

As a receiver, he caught 40 passes for 531 receiving yards with three touchdowns, and as a returner, he added another 494 yards with five more touchdowns.

Miles will join a stacked Tigers team that finished 10-4 last season and lost in the Class 3M state semifinals. Jones is set to return a pair of four-star offensive weapons in quarterback Dereon Coleman to get Miles the ball and receiver Vernell Brown III to keep defenses honest opposite the incoming transfer.
