Mason Myers, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound two-way lineman from Westmoore High in Moore, Okla., is starting to receive more and more recruiting interest.

A few weeks ago he was playing on the road in Norman and he noticed a couple of OU coaches in attendance at the game.

"I saw Coach Wilson and Coach Venables there," Myers said. "It was a lot of fun."

"I think I have been playing pretty well. There is always room for improvement, but I think I feel like I have been doing good."

Myers plays both sides of the ball for the Jaguars, and he maintains at this point in the recruiting process that he is willing to play anywhere on the next level.

"I really don't care," Myers began. "I love both of them. I love playing center and I love playing defensive tackle this year."

"I really don't know what side of the ball I am going to play on in college. Nobody really tells me. When I go to a camp I play on both sides of the ball."

Myers suffered a shoulder injury just prior to the start of the season, but he is playing at 100 percent.

"I came back and I figured it was going to be aching and stuff, but actually I have not felt anything."

Myers has yet to reel in his first official scholarship offer, but he is getting a lot of interest.

"I have been getting letters from places like OU, Kansas, Texas Tech, Clemson, LSU, Stanford, and Iowa State," Myers said of his interest. "I love it. I have always loved OU, but I have always loved watching all of these teams growing up."

Myers has already been on a couple of unofficial visits to watch the number one Sooners play.

"The Cincinnati game was awesome and I got to go to the TCU game as well," Myers informed. "The offense was awesome in both games and the defense was awesome."

"It was pretty crazy. You never think you are going to be sitting there on the sidelines watching your favorite team up close. It was awesome."
