Once again, Evan Massey came through, as the second of three interviews with incoming Purdue players was with Canton, Ohio defensive end Antoine Miles:

Evan: Why did you decide to sign with the Boilermakers? What draws convinced you?

Antoine: On my official visit, I instantly felt at home.

Evan: How excited are you to be playing in one of the toughest football conferences? Any of the Big Ten rivalries excite you the most?

Antoine: Well, I would say "excited" is an understatement. I'm more than excited to play in the Big Ten. And as far as the rivalries, I can't really choose and pick. I'm just a player that loves to play in a large atmosphere! I love large crowds.

Evan: Coming out of High School, what do you expect to be the most difficult change to D1 football?

Antoine: I would say I expect the game speed and the margin of error to be the most difficult!

Evan: What kinds of things do you do in your free time off the field? What kind of music do you listen to?

Antoine: I'm a people person, so I like being around friends, and hanging out and having fun. And I have no specific type, I like pretty much all music.

Evan: Who would you say has made the biggest impact in your football career, to help you get to this point?

Antoine: Hands down my mother.

Evan: As far as career goals at Purdue, both individual and team, what are you looking to accomplish?

Antoine: Win. As a team I feel like the goal to accomplish is to simply win. You play the game to win. I don't think anyone plays to lose, so that's the team goal.

Evan: What would you say the number one thing you need to improve in would be?

Antoine: Paying attention to the small details.

Evan: What can we expect to see from you on the field?

Antoine: You'll just have to wait and see, haha.

Evan: If you were speaking to a young football player with dreams of playing D1, what would you tell them to do?

Antoine: I would tell them that if you want to be successful, be dedicated, work hard, and never give up!
