Even with 4 CB commits, UM seeking more

The Hurricanes made an offer late last week to one of the most heavily recruited players in the greater Tampa area. Read on to learn more about him as a prospect and to see what Miami's chances are.

"Blessed to say that I received an offer from the university of Miami," said Jayvaughn Myers, a 2016 cornerback prospect from Pasco High in Dade City, Fla.

Myers, 6-feet and 185 pounds, now has 16 scholarship offers. Some of his earlier offers came from schools like Florida, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and Louisville. He's one of the more heavily recruited cornerbacks in the state of Florida right now.

Myers, whose half brother (Nate Craig) is one of the most heavily recruited wide receiver prospects in the entire country right now, finished his junior season (nine games) with 31 tackles and five pass deflections.

The talented cornerback prospect told Scout.com earlier this spring that he didn't have a top school growing up. However, Florida recruits that school and area better than anyone. He has a couple former teammates on their roster and the Gators offered him awhile back. As of now, they're probably considered the team to beat. He has not been to Miami yet.

Myers has ideal size for a major college cornerback prospect. He shows quick feet and loose hips on film but you'd like to see better ball skills, which could come with more experience at the position.

Miami has already loaded up with cornerbacks in the 2016 class. They currently have four committed, which means they will likely only sign two or three of them in the end. Either way, they're looking for at least one more and you can now add Myers' name to the recruiting board.
