Louisville offers talented Florida WR

Jacksonville (FL) First Coast wide receiver Kenneth Myers picked up his fourth scholarship offer this week from Louisville. Though Louisville assistant Ron Dugans recently paid Myers a visit and has developed a good relationship, the Cardinals are still trying to make up ground on another Big East program.

Kenneth Myers, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver from Jacksonville, Florida, landed his fourth BCS offer recently from Louisville.

Louisville wide receiver coach Ron Dugans is heading up Myers' recruitment and stopped by First Coast H.S. spring practice to check in with the two-star standout.

"It was exciting because Coach Dugans was talking to me and he came to practice and told me he enjoyed my highlight tape and how I practiced," Myers said. "He said he was going to offer and I got the offer in the mail this week. I was real excited to see the offer on paper."

Myers, one of the top offensive prospects at the Miami Nike Camp, said he maintains regular contact with Dugans and has developed a strong relationship with the Louisville assistant this spring.

"We have a real good relationship and talk about once a week," Myers said. "He seems real honest. He's not telling me nothing just to boost my head up. He likes my size and ball skills. I can feel a little trust and connection there already. I want to enjoy that with my wide receiver coach wherever I go to the next level."

Myers now has offers from Louisville, Illinois, West Virginia and Ole Miss. He hasn't made any visits yet this spring but plans to check out a pair of Big East schools and an SEC program this summer.

"I plan on going up to West Virginia June 20," Myers said. "And then I am going to probably visit Ole Miss and South Florida in July. South Florida seems like they're interested but they haven't offered. I might fly out to Louisville and Illinois also because both of them have offered."

Which programs are currently standing out to Myers?

"West Virginia and Ole Miss," Myers said. "I have a good relationship with the wide receiver coaches and I've been doing some research on their rosters and how many wide receivers they took in 2010. The biggest thing is finding a school I can play right away. I just want to feel comfortable. That's why I want to visit some schools before I commit."

Myers, who had more than 400 receiving yards and six touchdowns as a junior, said he might commit this summer after he takes a few visits. "I'm looking to go out of state," Myers said.
