Spartans Visit Myers

Freshman offensive lineman Josh Myers has quickly become the hottest name in Ohio for the 2017 recruiting class. This week Michigan State stopped by his school to learn more about him.

College coaches will be stopping in at Miamisburg (Ohio) High School to check on 2017 offensive lineman Josh Myers.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Myers has already received offers from Cincinnati, Michigan, Tennessee and Ohio State.

What did the Spartans have to say following their visit?

"Michigan State stopped in my school on Wednesday," said Myers. "Coach (Mark) Staten was the coach that came to school and he's a very big guy. In fact, he's the first coach I ever had to look up to."

From the sound of things, Myers hit if off quickly with the Spartans offensive line coach.

"Coach State was really cool," he said. "He's a down to earth guy and we started talking about how big our feet were and how hard it is to find shoes. So it was more of a normal conversation, but it was good to put a name with a face."

Myers wasn't surprised by how cool the Spartans assistant coach was with him.

"I've heard nothing but good things about their staff," he continued. "I was talking with one of the Michigan State coaches when they stopped in school the last time and he was saying good things about their head coach Mark Dantonio. I told him I had heard a lot of good things about him and he said it was all true and what you see is what you get. So I'm interested in getting to know more about them."

So when should the Spartans expect a visit in the future?

"We talked about it and they would like for me to come up for a spring practice of the spring game," he explained. "I'm going to Kentucky the day of their spring game and not sure I can get up for a practice. However, I'll be calling Coach (Harlon) Barnett to see when I can come up for sure."

Was Myers disappointed in not adding an offer from the Spartans?

"I totally understand every program works differently," he said. "I'm not going to hold that against them."
