Myrick led Savannah Christian to a state championship during his junior season, a year in which he had 25 tackles and 14 pass break-ups to go with two picks.

Coach Tracy Claeys' Take
"Jalen Myrick is big, he's 200 pounds. He had great track times in the state of Georgia, so very athletic. We wanted to make sure in this class that we got one true corner and that is him with a lot of strength and size. I think he has more stregnth and size to help us with the big, physical receivers in the Big Ten." High School Highlight Video
