Washington sophomore quarterback Cyler Miles has been reinstated to the team, the Huskies announced Wednesday.
Miles and sophomore wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were suspended indefinitely in February after being connected to an assault of two people after the Super Bowl. Miles was not charged. Stringfellow, who pleaded guilty to three assault charges in April, will transfer from the program, Washington announced.
Although Miles will need to get caught up to speed with new coach Chris Petersen’s offense after missing spring practice, the former four-star recruit is the frontrunner to win Washington’s starting quarterback job vacated by Keith Price.
In eight games last season, Miles completed 37 passes for 418 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 200 yards on 23 carries. The 6-foot-4, 217-pounder could be pushed by redshirt sophomore Troy Williams and redshirt freshman Jeff Lindquist.
The Huskies open their season on Aug. 30 at Hawaii.
