High school senior Miles Williams recently committed to the University of California at Berkeley, where he plans to major in computer science under its College of Engineering program.
According to his parents, Williams, a student at Pacific Hills School in West Hollywood, maintains a 3.5 grade point average while playing high school sports such as varsity basketball, volleyball and soccer. He also plays bass and drums for the school band, which he father teaches at the private school.
He is currently a finalist for a scholarship with the Posse Foundation and could possibly receive a full-ride scholarship.
