Myers committed, but "nothing set in stone"

Although his future position coach Adrian Klemm left for UCLA last week, 6-foot-6, 280-pound offensive lineman Seaver Myers said he's still committed to SMU and is excited about becoming a Mustang. However, there are a few other schools that have Myers on their radar now and he wouldn't object taking at look at them either.

Seaver Myers is still committed to SMU.

At 6-foot-6, 280 lbs., Myers is bigger than almost every offensive lineman SMU has on its current roster (redshirt freshman Taylor Reich is 6-7, 300 lbs.). In other words, the Mustangs need to do everything they can to keep his commitment solid as their five starters are graduating. Plus the 2012 class only consists of two offensive linemen, which is an area the Mustangs need to strengthen.

The problem is, a major reason Myers committed to SMU was because of Adrian Klemm. He was excited to be coached by a young, energized guy who knows the ins and outs of getting to the NFL.

But Klemm left last week for UCLA. Myers said he hasn't heard from Klemm since, which is unfortunate, but good for SMU fans as that means he probably won't be de-committing en route to UCLA.

Myers said he was hurt that Klemm didn't call to tell him he was leaving.

"I honestly felt a little disrespected," Myers said.

Myers said even if Klemm did call, he's not sure he'd leave the state of Texas.

"If Klemm does get in contact with me again and wants me to go to UCLA and offers me, odds are that I wouldn't go just because of distance, but of course, nothing is set in stone," Myers said.

Though UCLA might not be interested, there are a few other schools that could be getting in touch with Myers.

"TCU and Ole Miss have been rumored by my head coach [at Friendswood High School] to offer me soon, so if I were to change my commitment, it would probably be to one of those schools," Myers said. "But as of right now, I am solid to SMU and I'm extremely happy with my commitment to be a Mustang."

In terms of talking to the SMU staff since the June Jones-Arizona State news and Klemm's move, Myers said interim offensive line coach Wes Suan called him a few days ago.

Myers also said that Jones told all the recruits on their official last weekend that SMU would be his final coaching job.

"He talked to all the players there and told us that he will be at SMU," Myers said. "At least til we graduate."
