Get an offer.
The 6-foot, 170-pound Meyers has been in regular communication with Ole Miss over the last few months, but the Rebels — namely wide receivers coach Grant Heard, his primary recruiter — wanted to get Meyers on campus and evaluate him in person before extending a scholarship.
Sure enough, Meyers arrived on Friday. And after an impressive camp showing, including a recorded 4.38 40-yard dash, he didn’t leave empty handed, Ole Miss joining a steadily-growing offer list that already boasted Mississippi State, Minnesota, Memphis and others.
“This is a great program,” Meyers said, adding that he was looking forward to working with Rebel cornerbacks coach Jason Jones. “They’ve had success over the last few years. Last year, the ‘Landshark’ defense was, like, No. 1 in interceptions and everybody fell in love with their defensive backs.”
Meyers has kept busy this summer. The New Orleans, La., product, who Scout.com ranks as the No. 17 cornerback in the country, recently visited Mississippi State, the first SEC school to offer, and he’s already made plans for a few more over the coming week(s).
It’s all in attempt to raise his profile. Despite his four-star ranking, Meyers hasn’t been overwhelmed with offers. That’s why this summer is important.
“Mississippi State was my first SEC offer. When schools like that came, it was big,” the Holy Cross High School standout said. “State, I went over their Tuesday to visit for camp. I got a chance to talk to all the coaches. I got a chance to see their campus, talk to all their coaches and their head coach. I really liked it.”
A Minnesota visit could be in the works, too.
“Minnesota, they offered me when they came down for spring,” he said. “I’ve been talking to their (defensive backs) coach every day. They’re trying to get me up there for a visit. It’s pretty far, but I like talking to him, what he says and what he shows me.”
Meyers said he’ll next trip to Clemson and Florida State, stops he can only hope yields similar results to Ole Miss.
“With some bigger offers,” he said, “I think my name will start getting out there even more.”
