Myers Off To Strong Start At Camps

Zach Myers has proved himself as one of the top linemen in attendance at two big prospect camps this week. He also adds a new offer based on his performance at one of them.

It's still early for Zach Myers in his camp schedule, but he has gotten off to a great start with camps at Pitt and Ohio State over the last week.

Pitt has been one of the schools in on him the longest. He was one of the most consistent performer s at Saturday's camp, which happened to be the deepest group of offensive linemen of the three individual prospect camps the Pitt staff has held.

"I had a solid day," Myers said. "I'm waiting to hear back from them. Ohio State was a great day too. I got a ‘Best Camper' award. It wasn't like a trophy or anything. Out of 60 linemen, three of us got pulled out."

Myers will head to Kentucky this Friday, and also has plans to camp at Michigan State next month. Those two camps are set in stone, and there may be others he'll attend. Overall, on the Pitt camp, he felt good about his performance and got good feedback from offensive line coach Spencer Leftwich.

"I thought it was great, we had a good day," Myers said of Pitt. "I did well in the forty and the standing broad jump. We went to work after that, and had a couple of football practices. (Leftwich) said that he would be back in touch after their camps are over."

At Ohio State and at Pitt, coaches from other schools are invited to the camps where they have the opportunity to recruit some of the players in attendance. Typically, these are schools that would not compete against either school. One of the schools in attendance at Ohio State was Kent State, who became Myers' third offer.

Now with three offers, Myers is still hopeful of getting one from the Panthers.

"The coaches I probably talk to the most are from Pitt and Ohio State, and schools I already had offers from," Myers added. "There's no real big developments. Going into (Pitt camp), I knew they were looking at me. I went up there and had a great day. Hopefully, it turns into me getting an offer."
