Countdown to Virginia Football: #56 Andre Miles-Redmond

Can the senior from Richmond finally break through for UVA?

  • Position: DT
  • Height: 6-4
  • Weight: 280
  • Class: Senior

Andre Miles-Redmond is a senior defensive lineman from Richmond, Virginia. He’ll likely be a rotational player on UVA’s defensive line this fall. Miles-Redmond practiced at defensive end in the spring, but he might also be called on to provide depth at nose tackle. As we mentioned yesterday in the James Trucilla piece, Virginia is awfully thin at nose tackle behind Donte Wilkins.

Looking back on Miles-Redmond’s career, I can’t help but wonder if he should have been slotted on the offensive line. He was first-team all state as an offensive guard during his senior year of high school, and he was ranked the 78th best offensive guard in the nation by Scout. He was a three-star recruit across the board as an offensive lineman. UVA currently projects to have only 4 offensive guards on the roster in 2016. Thanks very much, Coach London.

Miles-Redmond has played in 14 games during his UVA career. After redshirting in 2012, he played in 4 games in 2013 and only 2 games in 2014. He played in 8 games last season, recording 6 tackles and one sack. His top career highlight can be seen at the 1:03 mark in the video below as he pressures Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya into an intentional grounding penalty and safety.

One has to imagine that Miles-Redmond will head into the 2016 season still looking to leave his mark on Virginia football. If he can give Virginia a boost on the defensive line, he might be able to do just that.
