2017 OL Josh Myers Adds Alabama To His List

Make no mistake, Josh Myers is one of the top prospects in the country for the 2017 recruiting class. Monday, Myers added another big offer following his camp performance at Alabama. Scout.com caught up with the Ohio native about his day and newest offer.

Scholarship offers continue to come in for Miamisburg (Ohio) offensive lineman Josh Myers with Alabama getting into the mix on Monday morning.

“The trip to Alabama was good and a lot of fun,” said Myers. “We got down to campus on Sunday night and then camped for about two-hours this morning and then visited the campus after that.”

Things got off to a quick start for the 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive tackle.

“Camp definitely went very well,” he said. “I got to do a lot of offensive line work with Coach (Mario) Cristobal and some of the older guys at the camp. So it went really well.

“I wasn’t great as Coach Cristobal had to correct a lot of things I was doing. But they were just minor things and were easy fixes as he was pointing out the things I could work on.”

One thing Myers enjoyed about the camp was the fact he got reps against some of the top prospects from a different region of the country.

“Those types of reps are important to me,” he stressed. “It allows me to get ready for my football season because going against older, great athletes gives me some good looks. So it was good to get reps against those older guys.”

While camp was great, it was just the start of another great on campus experience for Myers.

“After camp I was walking with Coach (Nick) Saban as they pulled a couple of us out of camp at the end of the morning session to go talk with him,” continued Myers. “So it was just me and him walking up to his office with my family behind us. That was when he offered me as he was just talking about Alabama, the school, their academics and the football team. He then told me I had a scholarship there.”

With an offer list that already includes the likes of Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan to name a few. How does it feel to be offered by another of the top programs in all of college football?

“It was exciting and the offer was very important to me,” he said. “Coach Saban and I talked some more and he told me that he wasn’t a huge fan of offering young guys. However, he said he felt that I was ready and that was the reason he offered me.

“While we mostly talked about the school, he also talked about how I would have an opportunity to play there when I get older.”

Is Alabama a program Myers wants to continue to have high consideration for in the years to come?

“Yes,” he said. “Some of the reasons why I could be looking at them a couple of years from now are how good of a program it is and the history of the school. I also really felt comfortable with the coaching staff and feel they have nice facilities.

“While they have nice facilities just like a lot of places you go, I thought their campus was really nice and really liked their coaching staff as I found them very east to talk with and very approachable.

“Another thing that stood out to me was how they did things. How they ran the camp and how up tempo and intense they did things stood out. I could tell that was probably how they run their practices as well.”
