Buena wide receiver Kenny Miles, who set a South Jersey record with 149 points scored by a non-back, made an oral commitment yesterday to attend Villanova. The 6-foot, 190-pound Miles caught 45 passes for 981 yards and a South Jersey-best 17 receiving touchdowns. Miles, who was an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey selection, had made an oral commitment to Towson but changed his mind when Villanova offered him a scholarship. "Villanova was his first choice all along, and when they offered today, he accepted," Buena coach Paul Callahan said last night.
