Myers "really happy with commitment"

Three-star offensive tackle Seaver Myers had a great official visit this past weekend and said it reinforced how happy he is with his commitment. Probably the most important part of the weekend was that June Jones told all of the recruits that he will be staying at SMU and will remain on the Hilltop throughout their careers.

Seaver Myers, a three-star offensive tackle from Friendswood High School (Friendswood, Tex.), was one of eight recruits to take an official visit to SMU this weekend.

It was Myers' third time on campus and said he can't wait to officially become a Mustang.

"The visit was awesome," he said. "I'm really happy with my commitment."

Myers chronicled the weekend: Friday after all the recruits got into town, they went to dinner with their hosts (his was redshirt freshman offensive lineman Joey Fontana). Saturday the recruits took a tour of the campus, ate lunch in the athletic complex and had physicals. Then they went out to dinner with their hosts and the coaches at Texas de Brazil.

Sunday morning, each player had a one-on-one meeting with June Jones.

"Coach Jones said that I can make an immediate impact on the team and get a chance to play early," Myers said.

Jones also mentioned something crucial to all his weekend visitors regarding last week's Arizona State news.

"Coach Jones told us that he will be staying at SMU throughout our careers there and that this will be his last job and doesn't see himself going anywhere," Myers said.

Myers said other coaches made it a point to say that last week's chaos is "over and that they are staying."

Myers also mentioned that the coaches told them about their exciting plan to build an indoor facility, which is something that the program has been trying to do for awhile now.

"That was pretty sweet," Myers said.

Myers said that he and the other guys on the visit had a great camaraderie and is looking forward to being their teammate.

"Everything was good between all of us," he said. "It was a great visit."
