Banag played linebacker, safety, and fullback in his Gamecock career. He made 39 tackles in his career, while also forcing a fumble and recovering one.

One of the more popular Gamecocks in recent years, Miles led the team in rushing during his freshman campaign with 626 yards. After the arrival of Marcus Lattimore, his numbers dropped. However, Miles answered when called upon, carrying the ball 108 times during Lattimore's absence due to injuries.
