L'ville 'serious' contender for TX OL Myers

Prior to his visit to Louisville this week, SMU and Utah topped the list for Seaver Myers, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman from Friendswood, Texas. Did Myers' visit with Charlie Strong's Cardinals do anything to change his mind?

Prior to his visit to Louisville this week, SMU and Utah topped the list of Seaver Myer, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman from Friendswood, Texas.

Did Myers' visit with Charlie Strong's Cardinals do anything to change his mind?

"SMU and Utah were at [the] top but I have a good feeling that Louisville is up there with them after the visit," Myer said. "Louisville is a very serious contender. The distance will play a factor and I told (offensive line) Coach [Dave] Borbely that. But if I have that gut feeling to leave Texas, may it be Louisville or Utah, I won't have a problem with it."

Despite a two-star ranking from Scout.com, Myers is high atop Louisville's recruiting wish-list.

"It(the visit) went really good and I enjoyed meeting with the coaches," Myers said. "Coach Strong and Coach Borbely are really genuine, good guys who really care for the players.

"I cant really pick out a highlight because all of it was pretty cool. There weren't any bad things. But one thing that was really neat was that both my mom and I got to sit down and talk to Mario Benavides, their starting center whose from south Texas, and that was pretty cool."

Though Louisville already has four offensive line commits in the 2012 recruiting class, the Cardinals hope to add one or two more linemen for next season.

"They said that they see me as being their future right or left tackle and that I have a good chance of playing early," Myers said.

Myers, who hopes to make a decision before the season, has visited SMU, Utah and Louisville. He'll make another visit to SMU next week.

"Preferably before the season, but if its just not right then its just not right," Myers said. "Whenever I just get that feeling I will commit."
