Myers Discusses Auburn Offer, Big Cat Visit

Jayvaughn Myers talks about his Auburn offer, Big Cat visit.

Dade City, Fla.--Last week was one to remember for talented athlete Jayvaughn Myers from Pasco High. The brother of five-star wide receiver Nate Craig, he had seen his recruiting start to take off during the spring as teams got a better look at him on the field, but on Thursday he got offer from both Auburn and Florida State as well as invitations to both the Under Armour and U.S. Army games following his senior season.

Already very familiar with the Tigers because of his brother’s longtime commitment to the program, Myers said adding the Auburn offer was a big one for him because of what the program is all about.

“I think it’s huge because it’s an SEC school,” Myers said. “I was pretty happy just to have that offer under my belt.”

Following his big day on Thursday, Myers hit the road with Craig to travel to Auburn for Big Cat Weekend. Spending time with Coach Gus Malzahn, Dameyune Craig, Travaris Robinson and the Auburn staff, Myers said the trip was a good one for him because he found out the Tigers like him both on offense and defense. He said he also got a good feel for why his brother felt so at home on the Plains.

“I probably spent the most time with Coach Craig, but I got it from both sides of the ball,” Myers said. “They want me at wide receiver too. I probably prefer DB, but I just like to make plays so I like offense too.

“I just wanted to see why he likes the school so much,” he added. “I wanted to see how it feels and everything and how the coaches react to you. I think it was a great. It surprised me a lot and just blew my mind how the coaches were.They’re really friendly and everything. It feels like you’re already enrolled at Auburn. I was pretty happy about it.”

Saying that Auburn is one of the schools he’ll consider moving forward, Myers has offers from Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Marshall, Miami, Mississippi State, Wake Forest, Wisconsin and several others heading into the summer.
