Red and Blue Recruits: BYU Commitment Miles Hall had a career receiving game

Publisher’s note: Each week during the 2022 high school football season, Red and Blue Recruits will report on significant performances or stories in the Utah high school football recruiting.

In a week of high school football in which several members of BYU, Utah and Utah State had solid games, a future Cougar arguably had the best night.

Skyline athlete Miles Hall, who committed to BYU this summer, extended his strong start to the season with 10 receptions for a career-high 235 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles’ 41-24 win over Highland on last Friday.

The receiving and yardage totals were the highest of his career, while the touchdown total tied his team’s winning effort in Week 1. Hall scored on catches of 59, 56 and 29 yards.

Hall, who plays strong at safety on defense, also had nine tackles.

At the midpoint of Utah’s high school football season, Hall has 27 receptions for 626 yards and eight touchdowns.
