A coach's son is on the move. The son of former LSU head coach Les Miles announced this evening that he's transferring.

Ben Miles, a class of 2017 recruit, announced on Twitter that he's transferring from Nebraska. The fullback says he's no longer a great fit schematically under Scott Frost.

"The program is in great hands, however it was no longer the right fit for me schematically," he writes.

His full announcement can be seen below:

Miles is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound fullback. He's from Baton Rouge, La.

The fullback was ranked the No. 2 fullback in the country coming out of high school in 2017. He had interest from several major programs.

Miles chose the Huskers over LSU, Michigan State and Purdue, among other programs. It's unclear where he is considering a transfer to.

Nebraska hired Scott Frost this offseason. The Huskers were led by Mike Riley at the time of Miles' commitment.
