Myers is one of a number of players, including Vincennes University guard Mychal Mulder. The 6-foot-4 Mulder is a Canadian averaging 15.4 points a game and hitting 45.6 percent from three-point range.

U of L has already signed Deng Adel, Donovan Mitchell and Ray Spalding in the class. McMahon will sign in April.
